Not everyone can be a hero, if this was false the word hero would hold little meaning, a hero is something special, something out of the ordinary. But back to my original question, why isn't everyone a hero? This leads to my topic, which is about what stops people from being heroes, which includes our moral choices, circumstances and ability to sacrifice. Specifically, I want to discuss what makes a hero, but more importantly why most people are unable to become heroes. The first thing which I believe makes a hero and at the same time destroys potential heroes is the simple fact that heroes consistently choose to be good, and through their goodness they inspire others to become better.
Doing a brave task, being a doctor, being a rich person, or even having a certain name does not make you a hero. It is very hard to describe a hero but a simple description of a true hero is a person that is being true to himself, does things that has to be done no matter what the circumstances are, never afraid to do what is right, and gives the best sincerely. In my point of view, true heroes exist in our world, and they are needed to protect us from the society we are living in and ourselves. Many people regularly ask why we need heroes. Simply the answer is that heroes give us hope, solve problems, and pick us up when we are down.
Eulogy: The Death of Free Speech There is no action more honourable than to give one’s life for the sake of another. When we contemplate this sentiment, we think of our firefighters and police force, who throw themselves to the fore of life-and-death situations to save lives. We think of our military, who willingly risk their lives to protect us and our country. But we might not think of free speech, the man we remember today. Despite us all being beneficiaries of his legacy, we often overlook the many historical battles that free speech fought.
Martin Luther King Jr. knew what he stood for, could be controversial to some and he was willing to die for his cause. That takes courage, not something everybody has, but it is something that good leaders should have. Martin Luther King Jr. had courage something not all leaders had or have. Martin Luther King Jr. had a family, he had loved ones and yet, he stood up for what he believed in even if it meant losing everything. That is what makes Martin Luther King Jr. a good

Pollock was trained in drawing, painting, exposed to European Modern Art, and the Theosophical Society. (par. 2) Two years later, he made the decision to move in with his brother Charles whom had lived in New York for the past 8 years and proceeded to attend his brother’s art school until 1933. When becoming extremely poor and moving around (par. 3), Pollock obtained a job at the WPA Federal Art Project.
What it means to be a true Hero In the world we live in there are so many different types of people. For example, there are those who cause harm to others for no reason and some who think there is a reason which there is no true reason to hurt someone who is innocent. There are those who support these people which make them almost just as bad. There are people who think it is wrong but yet do nothing about it when they can then there’s people who think it is wrong but can’t do anything about it. There are people who don’t care what happens.
Despite being warned by most people about the intimidating things that happen in the army, for instance loss of limbs and life, they still hit the ground running head first to fight the country’s battle in return saving millions of lives. In addition to the ones I have listed another example of everyday heroes are everyday civilians. Anyone can be a hero for instance the pedestrians who ran to help the victims of 9/11 or even the people who volunteer their time and money to help the sick and or unfortunate. Anyone who is willing to go out of their way to help others should be considered a
Any individual can turn into a hero by saving someone in danger, giving up his or her life so someone else could live. But heroes do not at all times show bravery, they can be heroes even if they are afraid as long as they do a heroic act. A hero illustrates courage when faced with a difficulty, someone who is capable of helping others in need. Somebody who gives hope and power to go on through life’s troubles. Heroes are individuals with characteristics such as modesty, substantiality and confidentiality.
“Violence as a way of achieving racial justice is both impractical and immoral. I am not unmindful of the fact that violence often brings about momentary results. Nations have frequently won their independence in battle. But in spite of temporary victories, violence never brings permanent peace.” -Martin Luther King, Jr. Mohandas Gandhi, Martin Luther King, Jr., and Cesar Chavez practiced passive resistance, which is nonviolent protest, to obtain equal rights, fairer working conditions, and to change unjust laws. These men were very courageous, and they did not just want equal rights and freedom for themselves, they wanted it for all those who had been oppressed.
