People don’t understand what it is to be a hero. They think it’s about sport or the military. The obvious stuff that you see in documentaries and films.

Lovely cinematic feel to this. Is it part of a novel? Out of interest -- you ever tried a film script?

I liked this Luigi -- pretty sure a lot of people out there will feel the same.
