The heroes of our times

Who are these modern super heroes who generate change and social innovation?
When we hear about social innovators we are still all too skeptical because we think of them as far away from us and from our daily lives.
In our imagination they are bound in a parallel universe like the super heroes of Marvel and, for this we doubt their existence and their exploits.

The book “Le stelle non hanno paura di sembrare lucciole (The stars are not afraid to look like fireflies)” by Sandro Calvani, Dhebora Mirabelli and Lilly Ippoliti, published by the publishing house Ave in 2018, returns to readers authentic stories of lives and businesses of forty-two people of different origins, out of the routine a boring everyday life that testifies with their personal history how they managed to achieve happiness and change their world.
Is not the achievement of happiness the greatest conquest of all time?
Here, thanks to the example of people like Abela, Aditi and Abhay, Alessandro, Apoe, Cecilia, Cesar, Diego, Jean Paul and Maggy, just to name a few, the heroes of our time are dressed in humanity and courage and change things . Mind you, these heroes do not leave the happiness to the poets, philosophers and thinkers, they roll up their hands and touch the bottom, climb the mountains without stopping to climb to the top. Where we all are victims of discouragement, fear and laziness, we dream of arriving while we admire and envy them with our noses. They are the real agents of change of their destiny and that of all those who have known them personally as the three authors of the book.
Sandro, Dhebora and Lilly with their stories have decided not to interrupt the magic of their lives, capable of restoring hope and “possible utopias” as specified by Enrico Giovannini in the preface to the book.
Awarded in recent days by readers with the 2018 Quality Microeditoria Award for the non-fiction section, the book confirms a successful collection of “modern tales for adults who question life”.
Here, then, where the heroes of our time have ended: they live next to us or within us we just have to be able to see them as examples of virtue. The human condition often leads us to doubt, diminish and denigrate the value of others; to close the eyes or turn the head to not feel the discomfort or the pressure to change. Where there are the brave, we see fog and go further.
No one in this book needs us, no one asks for help or understanding but as if by magic when you finish reading the last page you feel part of their lives and you wonder “The super heroes are over?”
The authors bet no, rather they are sure and promise us after the success of this initiative to tell and collect other tales because when you start to disclose and feed you of good examples becomes an addiction does not give up mediocrity.
