• I’ve learned in this unit, three universal characteristics of a hero. One characteristic is some type of special powers not necessarily things like super strength or Flying but hospitality and friendliness or the will to help others could be considered special powers or something even greater to save the day. Also, hero's lineage is often noble or linked to the gods meaning their family history is a heroic one. Lastly Hero's tending to be adventurous and strong they and often times are born this way. 2.
Do you think hero’s have to have special abilities like flying or lasers coming out of there eyes?. No you don’t have to have lasers coming out of your eyes or have to fly, you just need to be a person who simply teaches someone a good lesson or just is humane.The meaning (or of the hook and thesis) is you don’t have to have special powers or abilities because if you are a person who listens well to others, you mean what you say, and if you simply care about people and care about their feeling, then you are a hero. But if you are self-absorbed, or if you care more about your own needs above other people’s needs then you are not a hero you are a villian, in my opinion. A hero is a person who listens is meaningful and caring but they are never self-absorbed.
"But forty minutes later, Hall was still with Hansen atop the Hillary Step, going nowhere. During radio calls from Hall at 5:36, and again at 5:57, Cotter implored his mate to leave Hansen and come down alone. 'I know I sound like the bastard for telling Rob to abandon his client, ' confessed Cotter, 'but by then it was obvious that leaving
Whether it’s small or big anyone can make a change in the word being a hero. Being a hero doesn 't always mean you risk your life for someone. It can be something like a person getting out of their way to do something for you. In my eyes the hero of this novel is Johnny ¨Yes anyone could be a hero. You can think about it you just have to do what is in your heart to help.” (Robbins, what makes a hero) In the text “The Outsiders” it states an example of a hero “I had to they were drowning you pony!” (Hinton, 57) I think a hero in the text is Johnny I think he is a hero because he saved ponyboys life even though he ended up killing bob.
According to “A History In Numbers” by Dave Fowler, only 706 people aboard the Titanic survived the terrible accident, while the other 1,529 were taken down with the ship. Many people believed the iceberg was to blame for the sinking of the ship; however, the problems surrounding the ship began long before the ship set sail. “R.M.S Titanic” by Hanson W. Baldwin revealed that the crew was so confident in the ship’s inability to sink that they did not even pack enough lifeboats in case of an emergency. Furthermore, the captain and crew neglected to practice many safety drills that could have possibly saved many lives. The Titanic was doomed once the captain and crew set foot on the ship because of the arrogant aura they carried which resulted in the confusion and lack of resources that were obtainable during the sinking to many of the passengers including Master Harold Victor Goodwin and his family.
Another reason is the fact that he still lives at home even though his dad is abusive, and his mom doesn’t care. He could leave anytime he wanted but he doesn’t he stays there with his family even when he is harming himself. Also when Ponyboy and Johnny were at the park, then Bob showed up. Bob and his friends were drowning Ponyboy in the fountain, and Johnny was hurt he got right back up to help his friend. Johnny was terrified and didn’t
My idea of a hero is a someone who takes on large tasks and shows great bravery in his/her character. There are many characteristics that make up a hero. For instance, many hero’s are known to be very brave, courageous and motivated people. Many people have different ideas of what they think a hero is, but no who idea’s are ever alike. Some people when they get asked “What is a hero?” they
People do not have to go to combat or war to be a hero to the world. Anybody can be a hero even if only one person believes in them. People do not need capes or superpowers, they can be a hero by being selfless, brave, and courageous. Desmond Doss, a hero in many ways, but one way that stands out the most is that he is selfless. For an example, he ran in to the battlefield to risk his life to save the soldiers.
Yes, he changes for the better and completes heroic acts along the way, but many things he does are done to help improve his reputation or used to show off. He is unwilling to admit a weakness, not acknowledging fear until facing the monster. But, Gilgamesh does have moments of selflessness. He completes what Campbell would call the hero's journey and comes out a better person. However, I do not find enough of the qualities that I look for in a hero in Gilgamesh.
Everyone has a personal hero, most recent arguments have introduced ideas of celebrities being the new hero, and some have wondered who is considered heroes today. Being a hero these days doesn’t mean you are someone with special powers, or someone that has saved lives, but anyone can be labeled a hero. The word hero is often used by young kids naming someone they appreciate or wish to be such as famous singers, actors, and sport players. What is a hero to everyone, is that hero really a hero, and who is really considered to be a hero? Celebrities such as singers, actors, and models, what are they to the people of the unknown?
