“Heroes are made by the paths they choose, not the powers they are graced with”

"Heroes are made by the paths they choose, not the powers they are graced with” is a popular saying on Memorial Day and Veterans Day. It was printed in the novel Everneath (2012) by Brodi Ashton.

“Heroes are made by the paths they choose, not the powers they are graced with” was posted on Twitter on November 16, 2011. It’s not certain if this is related to the book.
