What does it take to be a hero?

Join Karen Davila as she recognizes Filipino modern-day heroes this Tuesday (Jan 12) on “The Correspondents” on ABS-CBN.
Last November 2009, Efren Peñaflorida was awarded CNN Hero of the Year for his significant contribution in education using his pushcart classroom.

It was a prestigious recognition for the Philippines following news about scandals, crimes, and tragedies in the country.
Aside from Peñaflorida, there are a lot of promising young people who can also be considered heroes of the new generation, heroes who can uplift the morality and integrity of the country. They show that one does not have to risk one's life to inspire other people and to make their lives better.
