Heroes have been an integral part of our culture. Everyone respects them for their honorable ambitions and sacrifices. However the obsession of money has also shared a part of that culture, often taking over the motives of most people, and drawing them away from the desire to be a hero and help others. It is the desire for money which seems to pit brother against brother, similar to the Civil War. Right now there is a war between home-buyers and sellers, both citizens of the United States; and there is no hero. At the same time, both are at fault for the rising foreclosure crisis.

Through these changes in payment, the sellers will get the money that belongs to them without choking the customers to death financially. Also, the customers will get the homes they want, and will be able to pay the money they have agreed to without losing their home, or losing money for the sellers by forcing them to sell it at a smaller price. While there is no one hero, it is possible for every person to be a hero, and live together. Brother embracing brother, holding the other up. After all, what is money compared to being a hero.
