The world is filled with many "quiet heroes" who have no press agents to "puff" their names...everyday people who bear burdens, fight battles, and help to build God's work in this world. Others may not know, but God sees what they do and honors them. In times of crisis, when everything seems to have fallen apart, God raises up His heroes and uses them. So it was with the Jewish remnant after the captivity in Babylon. They returned to the Holy Land, rebuilt the temple, and restored their civic life.
