“Heroes are ordinary people who make themselves extraordinary (Gerard Way).” Although, there is no right definition of heroism, there are several similar characteristic that all heroes have. Heroes can be anyone but what makes them different from the ordinary, strong and talented heroes is their attitude and the actions they take. True heroes never give up and they try their best to accomplish challenges. Heroism means putting others before oneself and taking the action when it is needed, even if people are against you.
Heroism has many meanings and has many forms. Some characteristics that describe a hero include bravery, determination, and righteousness. These qualities define a hero and all that they stand for. “When you know you’re licked before you begin but you begin anyway and you see it through no matter what. You rarely win, but sometimes you do.”
(Phillips) What soldiers do for everyone is an act of love in itself, even if it may be for their own benefit; they are here for our country and saving others, willingly. In everyday life we see heroes, not just those in uniform, but the people who blend into the background. We see them all the time, but do not give them any thought, and we take them for granted more often than not. These heroes can be the ones who donate to charity around Christmas time so a child can eat. The people who go underground every day as a coal miner to keep everyone’s lights on, are heroes.
Carrie Chapman Catt uses a lot of ideas about democracy in her speech that was logical. Catt uses logic to appeal to her audience from the first reason of women suffrage inevitability to the end of the speech. Catt uses the Declaration of independence, which turn out to be the basic rule of government (Catt, 1917). This is because it states that all men (women) are created equal and Catt used that along with the quote from Woodrow Wilson that states “we are fighting for the things which we have always carried nearest to our hearts: for democracy, for the right of those who submit to authority to have a voice in their own government” (Catt, 1917). The logic in Wilson’s quote as it relates to women’s suffrage is if democracy is the right of those who submit to authority to have a voice in their own government than why do women not allow to vote because they too submit to authority as men do.
Firstly, selflessness is a great quality of being a hero because of how Desmond Doss ran on to the battlefield with out thinking about himself. Also, being charitable is another great quality of a hero, because of Terry Fox and how he raised money for cancer.

An epic hero is an individual who must evoke a sense of heroism through legendary and inspiring deeds (Merriam-Webster). These heroes of tragedy have the ability to determine their own fortune due to the amount of admired characteristics they possess. However, the ideals of an epic hero are constantly fluctuating due to the ever changing ideals of society. Although the characteristics of an epic hero are under constant modification, Beowulf is still an effective modern-day hero due to his acts of courage, compassion, and dedication in relation to his people. Courage can be defined as any individual possessing moral or mental strength in the face of physical pain or indescribable hardship (Personalitytutor).
According to Merriam-webster.com (2014), A Hero "is a person who is admired for great or brave acts or fine qualities". A person can rarely be called a hero if they are not brave. If this person is not able to speak up or act in a way that backs his cause or defends it because of fear of the consequences then they are not considered a hero since they lack valor. A hero to me is someone who recognizes the consequences of their heroic actions and is committed to continuing their cause until the truth comes out even if it means suffrage to them since that displays how truly courageous they are. Merriam-webster.com (2014) states that initially the word hero derives from both the Greek as "hērōs" or Latin "Heros"; it was first used in the 14th century.
How is a hero described? Most people describe a hero as someone or something that is always doing good and helping others without being forced. Hero’s are not always benefiting from helping others but are happy to know they are doing good. A hero is not someone who is selfish and will not sacrifice everything for the good of others. Malala is a real life hero that is powerful and stands up for what she believes in, even though she knows there will be harsh consequences.
Johnny face his decision and myself think he did the right thing and why myself also think johnny the hero of this story because also who can keep a lot of his friends together and would help any of his friends if they asked or can deal with his parents beating and screaming at him and never lose hope of running away or leaving his friends and giving up and myself know this isn 't even related to this johnny went through some stuff that never should 've happened to him and now back to the story a hero is someone who is brave and has no limit at stopping at what they believe in, now you might think dallas or pony boy could have been a better hero but in my perspective they both had done stupid stuff like pony did he fell asleep in the parking lot and didn 't come and dally was worried and then he hit him that made him run away with johnny and that hurt johnny and because pony had to hang out with cheery and the other that were socs and the put them in a bad situation and that made it bad because that led to johnny having to pony and that 's not a hero it might not of been his fault if didn 't run away, and dallas could not have been the hero because with all of his fight and stuff and time in jail plus what type of hero slash peoples tires because they 're mad at

Hero is a person that help and saves other people, it can everyday person, a hero I someone that never gives up and is always there when you need them. “Heroes are ordinary people who make themselves extraordinary” Gerard Way. When I read this quote I think you got to step up and thrust himself in who you are and believe in yourself. Like superman he had to step up his “game” and help the other people, and he is one of many other super heroes another one is Abraham Lincoln because he guided the United States of America through some of its hardest times. He fought for the freedom of African-Americans.
What makes Benjamin Franklin an American? Benjamin Franklin was one of the founding fathers of the United States of America. When one thinks of America, thoughts go back to the revolution, independence and in one way or another; Benjamin Franklin. He was someone who gave so much to the people with his writing and lived by his own advice. His life set a model for those who were looking to build something for themselves.
We consider Benjamin Franklin to be one of the most influential heroes of his time. Franklin is a hero due to his groundbreaking inventions. During the time he was alive, he produced multiple ingenious inventions that helped combat problems in the 13 colonies. His Franklin Stove brought cheap warmth to many households, and his lightning rod kept many houses from becoming blazing infernos. Additionally, he found the connection between lightning and electricity, which led to all sorts of new discoveries.
During the 1700’s, Benjamin Franklin lived among common men while modestly being far more advanced in the fields of philosophy, science and many more. His unfinished autobiography published in 1793 shows an insight of the knowledge and beliefs that he represented throughout his life. Doubt eventually filled Franklin’s mind as he grew convinced of religious principles misleading men and women to righteousness, and instead rejected too many things made from God himself. For this, he insisted that to reach a complete virtuous state of being, one must become most acceptable in terms of self-reflection. This pragmatic way of understanding religion was inevitable, and he would continue to pave the way of such practical thinking.
