Think about people who deserve status as heroes—from the past, from the present, from life, and from literature. What defines a hero? Write a multi-paragraph essay that develops your definition of heroism. Be sure to use strategies of definition (function, example, and negation) to guide your writing

What do you think the meaning and purpose of a hero is? 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.

When people can’t stand up for themselves. People can be selfish,cruel, and rude but a hero is being who they are are being there self, “Be yourself; everyone else is already taken.”(Oscar Wilde). A hero is themself, because if they were not how would they be a hero. In my opinion, A hero is there true self and are happy for what they are doing. Also not trying to be someone else because a hero knows they can’t be anybody else they can only be themself. The idea is a hero is not a person who has super power but is a regular person like you and me, and they know who they are and are proud of them
