A hero can be anyone around you. A hero is a person who is strong, has courage, helps others, and does good deeds. Ponyboy deserves to be considered a hero. Johnny also deserves to be considered a hero too. 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.
In the United States, every year there are around 2,000 gang-related homicides and in the realistic fiction novel, The Outsiders, by S.E Hinton, it explores the issues of gang violence, and teenagers in gangs. Around 40% of all members in gangs are teenagers, who are getting involved in some dangerous things very early in life. In the novel The Outsiders, the “Greasers” which is a gang of all teenagers, fight other gangs and commit serious crimes such as murder.

To help someone get out of a gang, we as a society need to show there’s more out there in the world that they could do that will make a positive impact.
Stereotyping is an issue that affects all ages, genders, and races. Not all stereotypes are bad, but when you maliciously stereotype it becomes a problem. In S.E. Hinton’s young adult novel The Outsiders, stereotyping is a significant issue. There are two gangs in this novel, the “greasers”, and the “Socs”. The greasers live on the east side and are known as “hoods”. The Socs live on the west side and are known as the west side rich kids who have all the breaks. People judge their personality just based on where they live, and what they look like. Stereotyping is an unfair way to judge people because you never know their whole story.

“It seemed funny, almost strange that the sunset she saw from her patio and the one that I saw from the back steps was the same one. Maybe the two worlds we live in werent so different. We saw the same sunset.”(Hinton 35) The Outsiders a book set in the mid-1960s, in Tulsa, oklahoma is about the clash of the greasers and socs.

“For anything worth having one must pay the price; and the price is always work, patience, love, self-sacrifice- no power currency, no promises to pay, but the gold of real service.” John Burroughs. One of the points he is making is that getting anything of value accomplished or done requires sacrifice. Making sacrifices requires one to get out of their comfort zone.
