There are heroes among us--
a perfect hiding place.

[Note: We tend to identify heroism with heroic postures of bodies. But it's hard to find heroism among beings who feel dependent on meaty mechanisms that can be tethered on a short leash of food, shelter, climate and all the other circumstances that permit bodies to survive. So "among us" is a great hiding place for heroes. Occasionally, disguised as a body, we find someone who only pretends to be meat, while pursuing higher priorities, for example, integrity. Who would suspect it? Shhh! Ain't nobody here but us bodies.]
