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.

“Men like Moses, Jesus and Muhammad (may God bless them all) are stars that are aflame with divine fire.

It is sparks flying from the eternal flame of that Burning Bush that set alight the hearts and minds of men like Gandhi, Lincoln, King, Jefferson and Paine in all ages and places.” (Dr. Pasha)
