The person I consider to be an influential hero is Moira Smith. I refer to Moira Smith as a hero because she saved many strangers’ lives. Her life was dedicated to saving citizens from disasters that had occurred. Moira had even saved victims in exchange for her own life. Most people cannot do such a selfless thing as to risk their life to save others’.
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.
At least one time in our life we have been asked “who is your hero?” What really is a hero? Going out of their way, a hero benefits everyone. Because they care about everything around them, they help everyone; a hero is mostly someone who cares. No matter what age or what someone believes in, someone has a hero.
She is mostly suspected of finding charity important because it is the generosity towards the suffering. The Sisters of Mercy have aided largely in the help for those who were denied education, and who were destitute in their daily lives. By caring for donating to those who suffered from extreme poverty, Catherine McCauley and the Sisters of Mercy embodied charity as a means to live out their life’s purpose. Charity is also important for the everyday Catholic, because we are taught to treat each human with utmost respect and love, including those in
society's beliefs, regulations, and restrictions. There are heroes for both men and women of all ages. Every society has their own heroes, whether they are heroes because of their wealth, political career, war triumphs, athletic achievements or social leads. Benjamin Disraeli once said: “To believe in the heroic makes heroes”. Any individual can turn into a hero by saving someone in danger, giving up his or her life so someone else could live.
“Some people live an entire lifetime and wonder if they have ever made a difference in the world, but the Marines don't have that problem.” - President Ronald Reagan, 1983. I think this quote, by Ronald Reagan, not only speaks for marines but for all veterans who have served their people and made sacrifices to protect the rights of those people. I am proud and take great pride to be living in a country protected by such courageous men and women who have served to make a positive difference in our country. When someone risks their own life for the betterment of others, it is a very noble act that requires immense bravery and courage.
Hero to me is someone who goes out his way protecting the people, out of will. Hero who is idealized by the people. Put himself in danger to save others, doesn't just do it for the fame or glory. Hero is brave and will stop evil at any cost, just for the sake of the people.
A lot of times real heroes and role models go unknown. We focus ourselves on celebrities and people who really do nothing more but their job of acting or singing; some bringing bad influences. Real heroes are the ones who put their life on the line for the people they love, the country they love. People that in no way expected their lives to take a sharp turn and getting a little taste of hell while at the same time being praised although not by many. 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.
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?
The role of a hero can sometimes differ. Everyone can be a hero, but one person can do something that isn't only for himself but for the prosperity of a larger group of people, or even for the entire world. The purpose of a hero is to help not just yourself but others. In the old Anglo-Saxon literature, the hero usually is the one who would risk his/her life to defeat the enemy in order to help protect loved ones or a kingdom. Heroes today are illustrated as people who go on a daily basis putting their life on the line.
All her life she significantly suffered for the good of the Church. I greatly admire how St. Catherine never cared about what people thought of the way she lived. I appreciate her vigor in maintaining her faith and persuading others to follow Jesus. I find it particularly interesting how she traveled the world to spread the word of God and to help those in need. It’s very clear that St. Catherine of Siena dramatically impacted and influenced the teachings and principles of the Catholic Church.
Joseph Campbell once said, “A hero is someone who has given his or her life to something bigger than oneself.” Many heroes throughout history are just ordinary people who are faced with difficult obstacles in life and through their strength and perseverance succeed. Heroes come in all shapes and sizes, and affect others’ lives differently. Without a history full of heroes, our world would not be the same. For the the 2017 Recognition Award, I nominate Clara Barton.
Writer and lecturer, Joseph Campbell once said; “A hero is someone who has give his or her life to something bigger than oneself”. In addition to this quote, the significance of heroes in this modern society is growing, but these heroes exemplify various traits that are bold and noticeable. In fact, heroes portray simple, yet gallant traits that most things don’t have. Accordingly, today’s inspirations are highly unique, and they deliver ideals of courage and motivation to many. First and foremost, heroes have a determined mindset that ordinary people do not have.
