Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. "Heroes Among Us" tells the stories of people just like you and me who have chosen to make a difference in the lives of others. They are heroes that live in your community and have helped people you know. They are the unsung heroes who aren't seeking recognition or reward, but choose to act to correct injustice wherever they see it. Each episode will feature stories of courage and hope about people making a difference on every level - from the personal, to the professional, to the national stage - these ordinary people may just make a stranger's day a little brighter or they could change the world! Through reenactments and interviews we'll get to know these hometown heroes and what motivates them to do good and help their fellow humans.
