I came to believe that heroism is neither being perfect, nor doing something spectacular. In fact, it’s just the opposite: it’s regular, flawed human beings choosing to put others before themselves, even at great cost, even if no one will ever know, even as they realize the walls might be closing in around them.

Any public figure, choosing to call Trump out now and loudly falls, into the category of hero as described above, as they will surely be punished by Trump if he is elected. May we all find our hero nature in the coming months.
