Bruce Peabody is a professor of Political Science at Fairleigh Dickinson University (FDU) in Madison, New Jersey. Krista Jenkins is a professor of political science at Fairleigh Dickinson University, where she is also the director of FDU’s survey research center, PublicMind. Who are your heroes?  Depending on who you ask, the answer can be very different.  Children might look up to parents or even movie superheroes.  If you ask and someone off the streets or a politician, they might answer with a friend or a colleague.  Professors Bruce Peabody and Krista Jenkins are co-authors of Where Have All the Heroes Gone? The Changing Nature of American Valor. They talk about American Heroism and how it is viewed in politics and society in general.
