“Christopher Reeve”. That 's why I chose my dad as my hero. No matter what the task is he was willing to do it just help an make a in pact on people so why don’t we do do the same.

George Washington also acknowledge that he made mistakes himself and is far from a perfect individual but made clear to be open minded of criticism and corrections and to seek challenges by taking the easy routes in life. Washington’s Farewell Address is important part of our history and is taught up till this day to young American children in our schools and by Historians but few people understand the meaning and the importance behind the Farewell Letter. The Farewell Address the federal government, warnings against the party systems, the importance of religion and morality, warnings against forming a permanent foreign alliance, and a powerful military. George Washington has an overwhelming reputation by his military service, his position as our first president of the United States of America, and by leaving his position in office by leaving behind his Farewell Address to give present and future Americans insight on the history of our country and what it’s known for. It’s well encouraged to research what American history is about and how we can apply the Farewell Address into our life by living in peace, exercising our freedom of speech and choice or religions, along with respecting our governments and live in unity to achieve success.
Another example is that he did things for himself is when he started a war to get higher. Two of Rome’s leading figures, Pompey the Great and Crassus. ¨Together the three of them became known as the First Triumvirate and controlled Rome throughout the 50s b.c., until Caesar and Pompey, after Crassus’s death, went to war against one another in 49 b.c.¨ (-history.com) . To add on Julius Caesar did things for himself is that he would change rome to help himself and the government. This connects to julius caesar doing things for himself by lowering the rations to help the government get more
Marius had a few other accomplishments which also affected Caesar. He had many repeated consulships, which all laid down the foundation for Caesar’s desire to seek so much power from the State. He also shifted the army’s loyalty away from the Senate to the generals when he reformed the armies to include plebeians, which later made it possible for Caesar to successfully march on Rome and take absolute power. This was because Caesar was a supporter of the populares, so his soldiers were already extremely loyal to solely him, and not as much the State. These actions were all done mostly before Caesar had taken politics into his consideration, as he was still a young man.
He was a Roman General Consul and author of Latin prose. He played a significant role in the events that led to the collapse of the Roman Empire. He was a leader in a nation the people were not involved in the government decisions. He formed a huge army which helped him conquer new territories. As he acquired more power, some senators feared he was becoming ambitious and dangerous.
From building libraries, to handling the Civil War with intelligence, and tying the nation back together and building schools, George Washington had started it all. He was one of our great Founding Fathers of the Constitution, and without a start, there would be nothing. In the same manner, Washington did fought to keep our country from invasion. He was not the type of president to have power over his head and demand unreasonable things. Even after the war, he was one to lead the country back to peace and keep the nation safe and away from
Hobbes explains, “The final cause, end, or design of men (who naturally love liberty and dominion over others) in the introduction of that restraint upon themselves in which we see them live in commonwealths is the foresight of their on preservation...getting themselves out from that miserable condition of war, which is necessarily consequent...to the natural passions of men” (106). The commonwealth arises out of passion and reason. Once man identifies self-preservation as important through passion, reason guides him to the action of “restraint” to achieve it. Even though man is able to agree to restrain themselves for the sake of self-preservation, such a trade is motivated selfishly through fear. Hobbes says, “And the same are the bonds by which men are bound and obliged, bonds that have their strength not from their own nature...but from fear of some evil consequences upon the rupture” (81).
He was noble and wise. He may not of been born into royalty or nobleness but after being in the war and being loved by the king of Rome, I consider that to be of nobleness. His fatal flaw was loving his family because if he hadn’t talked about wanting to go home to his them or having them as a weakness at all, he never would’ve been so threatened. He makes the mistake of making an enemy of Commodus, the son of the King of Rome. Maximus refused to swear his loyalty to Commodus which put a target on Maximus’ back.
No matter what the task was, he stands up for his people to show them that a hero never backs down no matter if they are bigger and stronger than them. He sacrificed his life for his people for they had honored him for everything he has done for them (Georgianna, 1987). On the other hand, in the article of The Hero as Keeper of Human Polity, it describes how Beowulf is a good example to be a productive art. Not only does Beowulf represent heroic in the poem, but the poem is presenting “virtue as an act that sustains and vice as act that disrupts human brotherhood” (Kroll, 1986). Therefore, both of the articles are expressing and showing that heroic isn’t just something that they do for good.
Being a veteran is to feel the duty to secure our nation and to battle for what you put stock in. It intends to love your nation enough to forfeit your life if essential. It intends to have faith in God, your nation, and your convictions. Being a veteran is to chance your life to help other people recuperate when they couldn't do it all alone. It intends to be valued by the general population you have battled for and secured.

In my opinon Lincoln was a strong president because he never once gave up. When he didn 't get elceted for president the first time he tried he didnt give up, he tried again two more times. Most people would give up after the first time but he had faith he would get elected. It was because of Lincoln that America won the civil war. He knew what he could do for his country and he tried his best.
I know you can win this war!” The reason it’s making me re-enlist is because the people need my help to get their freedom just like my friend. And I will get it for them and my friend. I will do what I can and besides I want to die for honor and purpose for my country than to die with nothing to live for and no reason to
He recalls being young and not knowing if he had the willpower to participate in combat, but truly respects those who could and had to. He called himself very lucky because he saw the rise in tensions and the way the government wanted people to enlist, so he went ahead and enlisted before he could be drafted and possibly placed in a war zone. He was glad he enlisted when he did because the following year he would have been drafted anyway through the number system they had early on. He knew he should have enlisted as well because he had multiple uncles who had served in the military during wars. He wanted to show some respect and honor them before he could be drafted.
