Heroes of 2014

December will see an array of blockbuster movies to entertain during the holidays. Two of these, Exodus: Gods and Kings (releasing 12 December) and Unbroken (releasing 25 December), draw on big stories —one ancient and world-shaping, the other contemporary and deeply personal. The tag line for Unbroken is "Survival. Resilience. Redemption."—a line that could also apply to the great epic tale of Moses, Pharaoh, and the escape of the Hebrews from ancient Egypt.

The year now coming to a close was also rife with drama and crises, and many have of necessity made "survival, resilience, redemption" their own tacit taglines. In all the stories of 2014, who have been your heroes? Who has given us models of tenacity, unquenchable spirit, and hope?
