Last month, I shared with you about unexpected things because dealing with surprises is part of being a hero. In fact, a surprise is sometimes the beginning of conflict, and without conflict, a hero has nothing to overcome. A hero learns how to overcome his obstacles by accessing and using new information.
All heroes need new information. Elizabeth Bennett and Mr. Darcy needed new info. Frodo needed new info. And the four siblings wandering through Narnia needed new info. Heroes must learn something valuable if they are to continue being a hero.
This month, the heroes on this blog are going to school. They have to listen to new teachers and make new friends in order to have access to the right information. New information comes with a high price sometimes. A hero may have to learn humility or patience before they earn the right to the information they need.
