Not one of these ducks said, 'Thank you.'

You can never tell when or if heroism will be thrust upon us. You don't wake up in the morning and say, "Today, I'm going to save the lives of an entire brood of ducklings who have fallen through a storm drain." At least I don't think you do. That sure seems like a weird thing to say. And how would you even go about fulfilling that promise? Even if you visited every single storm drain in your town, you'd have to be extremely lucky to find one that had a bunch of baby ducks trapped inside it. Unless maybe you're the one that put them there, in which case I don't think you could accurately be labelled a hero. You're probably a psychopath or a budding serial killer.
