Heroes come in all shapes, sizes and colors. And there are men among them as well as women.

I am used to heroes – for, that is the story of Islam: one unbroken chain of heroes, male as well as female – so I have no difficulty in knowing or picking my heroes.

I had picked out Bill Gates and Warren Buffet as my heroes a long time now.

I recently added the name of Elizabeth Edwards to the list, for she left a mark on my mind, in her life as well as in her death.
