Tennis From the Beginning When little baby Serena was young, she started her training at age 3 and has always loved tennis. Her family supports her so much they even play tennis. “Serena 's father used what he 'd gleaned from tennis books and videos to instruct Serena and Venus on how to play the game. At the age of 3, practicing on a court not far from the family 's new Compton, California, home, Serena withstood the rigors of daily two-hour practices from her father.”
What does it mean to be a hero? Growing up watching cartoons a hero to me was someone named "Batman" who wore a cape and knocked scores of baddies unconscious; as a youth my heroes were explorers who roam the sea; and recently my heroes have become individuals who have strived for social change. All of these people and characters influenced me - I used to wear capes at the mall, I would turn refrigerator boxes into ships, and yet over the summer I came to the realization that my biggest hero had been alongside me all along - my grandmother. A hero does not need to wear a cape or fight the world, to me a hero is defined by their dedication and commitment. An individual's willingness to sacrifice personal happiness for the betterment of others
From Greek mythology to 21st century TV shows, the idea of what a hero is has changed. The antagonist was always patronized for his wrong doings and mishaps, the protagonist was always favored and rooted for during his journey, and the audience was always eager to find out what was going to happen next. The “hero’s journey” was consistently the traditional, saccharine, orthodox concept of the good guy embarking on a new adventure, with an objective that s/he must reach, while overcoming obstacles in order to transform her/him. Surprisingly, that all changed when we began to empathize with the bad guy during his journey. Those bad guys are not only in TV shows but also are in reality represented as celebrities.
Hero’s aren’t Invisible I have only ever seen hero’s in movies and have never really thought about what a real hero is to me. Is it the teacher who helped me the most throughout high school, and help me succeed? Is it my mom who has always been there for me no matter what, through thick and thin? Is it the men and woman who are sworn to protect this country with their lives?
Batman, Superman, Captain America, police officers, and firefighters were my vision of a hero as a child; they demonstrate great courage in the face of danger and save lives. Today, a hero has many faces; they don’t have special superhuman powers but are ordinary human beings making a difference in the lives of others. Whether it’s helping a person unload their groceries, donating food during a food drive, buying toys for orphaned children for Christmas, or just a simple smile to someone who is feeling down, this is what being a real hero means. A hero impacts our lives in a positive way. For example, when I was seven years old, I used to sit on my front lawn and watch the neighborhood kids riding their bikes up and down the sidewalk with
What my hero means to me. I look back and see that most of my memories and feelings that my hero has done for me to help give me success, protection and being caring. My hero is my hero nobody else's well maybe except for my 6-year-old brother but my dad is always there for me. My hero helps me through the bad times and tells me to have a good day if I go anywhere and tells me to be careful.
What is a Hero? When you think about a hero you think about the strong and corageous people that you see in a movie or T.V. show. Most of the time fictional heroes are flying or have other super hero powers but, we all know that people can’t just be born with those powers. So how do we know what a hero is? I’ve been asking family members and friends what a hero is to them and the outcome was the same for everybody I asked, the answer I got is someone thats willling to help someone or is doing alot for others and not themselves.
Joseph Campbell once said, “A hero is someone who has given his or her life to something bigger than oneself.” Different people have different ideas about what defines a hero because everyone has their own hero. A hero to me is someone who fights for what they believe in against all odds and at any cost. This definition of a hero is true because of how people get to be heroes, the positive impact heroes make on people’s lives, and my hero’s part in my life.
What is a hero? Is it a muscular crime fighter helping a damsel in distress or maybe a daring thrill seeker in a costume? These examples are what most people think a hero is, when in reality, a hero can be anyone who is courageous and willing to help others. Hero’s can be anywhere and they can be anyone. Superhero movies and comics are extremely popular in today’s society, and are where the stereotypical views of heroes come from.
