Here is a piece of sheet music published by Shapiro, Bernstein & Co. Inc. in 1927. The words express the feeling of Lindbergh at the time.
I dug out my old Lindbergh books down in the basement this afternoon. In reading some excerpts from them and reflecting on Benjamin's The Aviator's Wife, I am ready to conclude that there are Heroic feats by exceptional people and Hero's of specific events or activities but that doesn't make them Heroes in General. .
