Dally does not deserve to be considered a hero though, unlike Ponyboy and Johnny. These 3 people are people I consider that are very important to the book. Ponyboy is one of the people in the book that deserves to be or is a hero. Ponyboy is very courageous and helps others. One of the quotation that can support that he’s a hero is when he realized the children are in the burning church he was not afraid at all and said, “I’ll get them, don’t worry!” (p. 91) This quotation supports my statement because it he said to not worry, because he’ll get them which shows he’s courageous and helps others.
A hero that is willing to give their all and not give up when there is an immense obstacle up ahead. These two heroes might share different stories, but they share the same courage to fight and the honor to give their all. These individuals are both brave and honorable men that shares the same ideology and will fight to the bitter end. Achilles might be selfish, while Beowulf isn’t but they both have the courage of a thousand men. A hero is not a person, but an ideology that is followed by honorable individuals and these traits make them superior above normal ideology.
Bravery is still evident now but only with some people and the definition of bravery changed from the man who will conquer all to the man that will do the right things. On Beowulf, if you fought a monster naked and head-on, and even won, you are brave. Nowadays, being brave can be seen in any manner not just by fighting others. Honor is of great importance and every man should dream of glory and victory. They are also expected to be loyal to their leader or to someone of importance to them.
There are many people in the world who are influential. These people impact the world in a positive way by inspiring people to follow there dreams,stand up for what they believe in, and overcome obstacles. One man desmond doss a hero who helped his team win world war II. desmond doss is influential because of his heroic acts, accompliments, and beliefs. first he is influential because of his heroic acts he has strong beliefs even in war he believes people shouldn 't kill , he would never carry a gun, and even helped some of his enemies and believed strongly in helping people.
Odysseus can be compared to a modern hero because he risks his own life to protect his crewmates. Also comparable to a modern hero, Odysseus portrays human qualities throughout the highs and lows of his journey, such as sadness when he learns that his mother had died during his time away. Odysseus should be considered a hero because throughout the good and bad of his voyage, Odysseus continued to lead his crew and came through with all of his
Grendel’s head was so hard to move that it “was no easy matter for those courageous men, bold as kings, to carry the head away from the cliff” (pg. 54). Instead of getting treasures for the Danes or even his own people, he brings back Grendel’s head that provides no real gain other than a symbol of how courageous and heroic he was. Beowulf does this because he had remorse for not delivering Grendel’s dead body to the Danes, but also because he wanted to ensure that stories of his courageous acts and god-like heroism spreads among rapidly among a vast number of people and
This quote emphasizes the idea of Johnny's selflessness. During the fire and throughout the book, it is seen that Johnny cares for others more than himself. Risking his life in the fire to save innocent kids, he never knew, has a selfless act not many people would take. This quotes also highlights the idea of Johnny's change to a hero. As seen at the beginning of the novel, Johnny is the boy from the wrong side of the track, and while the story unrolls, Johnny starts to become a hero.
I hadn't realized Johnny had been right behind me the whole way. (91)" Their actions show that Ponyboy and Johnny are heroes because they ran right into the fire to save the kids with no regard that they could get hurt. One reason that Dally is a hero is because he saved Johnny from the fire while the church was collapsing. Heroism can also be seen from Dally when he gets money, a gun, and a place to stay for Johnny and Ponyboy.
The biggest hero in The Outsiders is Johnny. Johnny is the biggest hero because he puts his life in jeopardy to save others, also he keeps the gang together and he is brave. That’s why I think he is the biggest hero. First, he puts his life in jeopardy to save others. He saved kids from a burning church then he got injured bad.
Benjamin Franklin a True American Hero Christopher Reeve once said “ A hero is an ordinary individual who finds the strength to persevere and endure in spite of overwhelming obstacle” meaning that a hero is someone who does not give up and perseveres no matter how hard things get. They keep trying and keep going to get to their goal. Many people have shown these qualities whether it was a fireman a teacher a greek goddess or even a postman.These qualities make a great hero because they do things many people would find impossible. Most people would give up when it gets hard but it takes someone heroic to get passed these obstacles and to make the impossible, possible. One of these people being benjamin franklin.He showed this characteristic
When you turn on the nightly news and all you see is the bad in the world, the hurt, and the corruption that has engulfed us as a society, it is nice to see someone do something not because they will get paid or become famous, but because they know its simple the right thing to do. This story fits the concept of a hero most similar to Bernardo’s explaination of a hero. Riggs’ saved his family and risked his life not because thats what people would expect but because he had the responsiblity to take care of them. Just like Bernardo states, he did this “because he loves them and wants to”. Riggs displayed the kind of courage it takes to be a hero.
In conclusion, Joseph Pfeifer is a hero. By saving so many lives, it shows that Joseph Pfeifer sacrifices himself for others,cares about others, is courageous, noble, and confident in himself, and that he perseveres when there are tough situations in his way. To me, a hero can be any ordinary person. It is his/her sacrifices and actions that make them special. Joseph was just being an ordinary firefighter, doing his job and fixing a gas leak, but he ended up saving the lives of so many people.
