Anyone can be a Hero including Greasers. A hero is a person who helps others with courage and will sacrifice things for others eventually becoming a good role-model. Pony is a hero, he saves others when their might be sacrifices for him. Dally was not a hero, he was not nice to others but to people in his gang he was fine. Johnny was a good person and a hero showing we all can change into heroes.
These group of firemen stood out of the rest because they risked their lives to save people they do not even know, this is a real hero. It does not matter if you are wearing a cap or not, if you show bravery and courage then you are a real hero. Beowulf and Firemen both are real heros since they both risked their lives to save people they don't know. A real hero will always be remembered for courageous acts or nobility of
Steve Hartman describes Wesley Autrey’s heroism saying “A hero only makes the news once.”(Hartman). Autrey will see life differently not because of the fame gained from the act, but knowing that he is capable of achieving heroism. Life will also appear different for the man he saved, he is now thankful for having a selfless
Everybody knows about the classic superhero story: a villain tries to destroy everything, the hero intervenes, saves the damsel in distress and the whole population is delighted and accepts him. Yet, behind the familiar, innocent narrative put forward is hidden a much darker tale of support to the elite. The conservative ideology publicized by superhero stories tends to support a worldview in which the interests of the upper-class and the stability of the system are protected. In that narrative, individuals are not expected to think critically or defy authority, but to follow orders and use their natural skills to benefit society as a whole. Benevolence, obedience and security are valued over individuality, creativity and progress.
Get the water...”(542). I chose the helmet of a knight to represent this because knights are the heroes that help others and make them feel secure. Virtues/Vices- Mr. Frank’s best qualities are that he is both optimistic and compassionate. He constantly urges the families to stay calm and that the war will be over soon. When they all thought that they were going to be discovered, Otto comforts them by saying, “We’re alive, safe...”(543).
In my opinion, a hero is someone that takes risks when faced with a problem and helps others in the goodness of their hearts. Not to mention a hero is also someone who can give strength to others and save someone who is in danger.But how do these “hero’s” become this way? Are they born with their “powers” or are they shaped into heroes by their allies? In the story, The Hobbit Bilbo learns to become a hero’s only by the journey he takes and the choices he makes. Hero’s that learn to become a hero along the way don’t have an unusual birth.
Rieux commends Grand as a hero due to his selfless acts throughout the novel. Grand, without hesitating, agrees to help with the sanitary squads, and when praised for helping, he responds that he did not need praising because people should help others during a time of need. Grand relieves the suffering of others without
When “carrying the fire” a person can be safe from whatever the world throws at them. In addition to that, good things will always happen to good people. Just as the man said, “Goodness will find the little boy. It always has. It will again” (281).
For example, fireman can easily be deemed as heroes for saving lives, but they do not necessarily have internal problems or growth of their character. Thus, Shahrazad should be considered a hero because her strengths of her nobility, wealth, identifiability, selflessness, bravery, and intelligence all out weight her weaknesses of lacking an internal problem, character grow, and progressing through a
Well known heroes do not kill people with no sympathy or mercy. So is Odysseus really a hero? There is a lot of reasonings to both sides, he could be a hero because he was loyal to his homeland and men. He was also clever and dedicated to all his plans and ideas to conquer creatures and return home. On the other hand, he does not seem much like a hero because he was unloyal by having affairs on Penelope.
In conclusion, Joseph Pfeifer is a hero. By saving so many lives, it shows that Joseph Pfeifer sacrifices himself for others,cares about others, is courageous, noble, and confident in himself, and that he perseveres when there are tough situations in his way. To me, a hero can be any ordinary person. It is his/her sacrifices and actions that make them special. Joseph was just being an ordinary firefighter, doing his job and fixing a gas leak, but he ended up saving the lives of so many people.
I Am David David is a great many things. David is humble, brave, and respectful. David is humble because he puts others well being before his. He is brave because he ran into a fire. He is respectful because he helps other people without thinking about it.
“True heroism is remarkably sober, very undramatic. It is not the urge to surpass all others at whatever cost, but the urge to serve others at whatever cost.” -Arthur Ashe. What makes someone a hero? A question often addressed in literature, media, and art, as well as by people themselves. The typical idea of “heroism” tends to bring to mind an image of a superhero or someone who saves many lives, but does being heroic always involve having superpowers or putting yourself in danger to save others?
A hero is not a person who does evil or who stands by and watches. Again, it is someone who cares about the world and risks their life for the ones they love. The function of a hero is loyal, inspiring, and fearless. The hero is when someone is helping out a country, village, or even friends. For example, while Mal and her friends, Jay, Carlos, and Evie were trying to find the talismans
When you turn on the nightly news and all you see is the bad in the world, the hurt, and the corruption that has engulfed us as a society, it is nice to see someone do something not because they will get paid or become famous, but because they know its simple the right thing to do. This story fits the concept of a hero most similar to Bernardo’s explaination of a hero. Riggs’ saved his family and risked his life not because thats what people would expect but because he had the responsiblity to take care of them. Just like Bernardo states, he did this “because he loves them and wants to”. Riggs displayed the kind of courage it takes to be a hero.
