Odysseus is a hero because as a leader he can properly execute a group to do an action. Leadership is very important when it comes to being a hero. Leadership is what guides people. Heroes and villains both have leadership, but the only difference is that hero’s lead the proper path. Odysseus uses strategies as a hero to overcome the obstacles that come his way.
In the book A Prayer for Owen Meany by John Irving, my favorite character is Owen Meany. I admire the way he cares about his friends and is willing to do anything for them. He is concerned about John coming to Vietnam. To avoid this, Owen cuts off John’s finger so he cannot go into the war. This would be difficult, but he loves John and wants to protect him.
During his adventures growing up, Hoke 's calling has been one of a protector. Believing that through the Armed Forces, he can protect those he loves, those they love, and so forth. In addition, he dreams of "improving the quality of life in this imperfect world." Since at a young age, Hoke has felt the passionate sway of the United States ' military. Many of his
History is full of heros but, what makes these people heros. Is it their bravery on the battlefield, the honor they give to their family, or their intelligence. Much of this is true in the time of ancient Greece. Although Grecian heroes give the gods some credit for their gifts they are often concerned about bringing the glory and honor upon themselves or their family; however, Biblical hero's want to bring honor and glory to God. Odysseus is a hero to the Greeks but not from a Biblical standpoint because of his arrogance toward his intelligence, perseverance, and courage.
However, heroism can take place in our everyday lives by simple brave actions. A hero has many noble qualities such as courage, humility, patience, being selfless and caring. They will put other people before themselves and make sure others are content. Heros are also intelligent and like to think ahead to plan on a good result. Although Victor very well fits the role of a tragic hero with a fatal flaw, he also fits the role of a hero.
Helping our veterans should be mandatory because of their sacrifice. Even though some people believe war veterans acquire enough from the Government, others believe they deserve more for their services. Veterans of the United States of America should not be homeless since they fought for our country with a sense of bravery and commitment. Therefore, the Department of Veterans Affairs should be reconstructed, also expanded to meet the growing need of our veterans. Moreover, our countrymen had a choice to become anything they wanted, but they chose to defend our great country and freedom we so graciously enjoy.
Everyone was getting hurt and these wealthy officials kept their hands clean from miles away. They used the idea of patriotism for the fatherland to get people to enlist for the war. Patriotism, in no way, is a bad thing, however, when one is guilt tripped into believing that their fear of dying in war is actually a lack of devotion to their country, it becomes entirely wrong. One must understand that the majority of the soldiers fighting in World War I had no dispute with the other side and they had only joined, to protect the country they had grown up in and learned to love. These citizens should have been shown the reality because, painful or not, the soldiers who died on the battlefield a decade ago, deserved to know what they were signing up
Although he is known mainly for his involvement in football, Tony has said in several interviews that football was not his life. He often said this to his players and to his staff as well. It held a place of importance in his life, yet it was not the most important thing. Tony has also stated in the past that one’s faith, family and the impact made in the community is of much greater importance then football. His involvement with the community in programs such as All Pro Dad an organization that highlights the importance of being a good father, shows that he stands behind what he says.
His views on nationalism, as shown by the statement "I survived, but it's not a happy ending. I was a coward. I went to the war"(The Things They Carried, 79), are not extremely prominent. This quote clearly shows that he did not feel strongly enough for his country to potentially die for it. He believes patriotism is almost non-existent which is expressed through the idea that his only motivation for joining the army is the opinions of others and the statement “they carried their reputations.
At a young age being in trouble with the cops no one would think such a kid would end up being a true American hero. No one thought he would have lived long, which in many occasions they were right. An example of why we can never underestimate anyone. Louis Zamperini is the name to remember. Being an Olympic hero, a WWII bombardier, a prisoner of war, and a survivor of war, Zamperini is a true example of American pride, heroism, and forgiveness.
Zach’s Reflection Freedom is something we often take for granted and do not realize how much it can impact our life. But how did we earn that freedom and how do we keep that freedom that we so often enjoy without thinking about it? It is because of the brave men and women who are willing to sacrifice everything including their lives to defend our rights and Country. How do these brave men and women get treated after serving our Country is an important issue, which is where originations like the Department of Veteran Affairs (VA), Disabled American Veterans (DAV), and Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW) come in to help. After serving in the military for 6 years I learned there is no stronger form of brotherhood.
Ender was also caring. He showed this trait when he told the Queen bugger, “I’ll carry you… I’ll go world to world until I find a time and place where you come awake in safety,” (321). By performing this act, it showed that he was caring because he is willing the search his entire life for his “enemies” new home. It also exhibited leadership because it revealed devotion and it gained respect of the buggers. Although he is bright and compassionate, he could also be hostile.
One of the most important things that helped the soldiers is their friendship with each other. This bond that the soldiers form helped them to survive, and helped the men of Alpha Company to cope with the war after they returned to the United States. The bond that men form with each other in the heat of battle is incomprehensible to those who have not experienced warfare for
As a commander of the Special Operations Forces, he had improved the way they fought. You do not hear about or see him in the media. Special Operation soldiers call themselves silent professionals since they do not want attention. It is our duty to recognize these wonderful people and put them on pedestals for the amazing work they do. General Brown is a hero, and he should have his face on a postage
Both characters see the importance of courage. Jonas and Ponyboy made a lot of sacrifices to benefit the society. I think that both were very fearless for doing that. Jonas even escaped from the society to return memories to the citizens in his community. Because of him being so daring the people of the community will finally know the truth of the outside world and freedom of choice.
