Though Darry is strong he finds it hard sometimes because he misses his mom and dad. Darry is a hero. He is courageous and not afraid to say what’s on his mind. One main reason Darry is a hero is because of all the responsibility he has for his brother’s life. He has made sacrifices to care for his family.
Heroes put others before themselves and will do anything to ensure that thing’s safety. Many people have either risked their lives or have loss their lives due to trying to save others. An example of this would be the man in the red bandana or Welles Crowther. Crowther was working in the twin towers as planes were crashing into them. Crowther could have ran away from the other people when the planes hit, but he chose not to spare himself, but to save others and sacrifice his own life.
It is not a simple task to be a hero. In Joseph Campbell’s article What is a Hero? the many attributes and tasks one must perform in order to be a hero are discussed. In Daniel Woodrell’s novel Winter’s Bone, sixteen year old Ree Dolly is put to the test when she must prove her dad is dead in order for her family to remain in their house. In the story, she attempts to regain this house that is about to be taken from under her, faces the man she fears more than any other, and is able to find a solution to the dilemma she is presented with.
Darry was a special part in his “family” and it meant a lot to him to call himself a greaser. When the disease occurred, the lungs weren’t the only things. Every time he coughed blood came out and the gang couldn’t do anything about it. His family was proud of everything he has provided for them, and they will never forget all to memories that occurred before the death of Darry Curtis.
Finally I believe that Darry is a hero in my definition in the whole story, maybe not when he slapped ponyboy, but everything else he is one. Darry is a hero by supporting his family by working two jobs for money to buy food, “Darry worked on two jobs at once and made good at both of them”(91) He turned down a college application just so he can be with his brothers. He is really helpful for his brothers and the gang when they need help or in trouble, like when he and the gang went to go help dally in the
Robin Emmons is a woman from North CArolina who has given up her career and her backyard to help people in need. “The Scarlet Ibis” by James Hurst is a short story about a little boy Doodle who has trouble doing everyday things and how he pushes through his fears. And Margot from the short story “All Summer in a Day” is about a group of children that have moved from Earth to Venus and have attempted to start a life there, and how the hero Margot is ostracized by her classmates. A hero is someone who fights for the greater good; Doodle, Margot and Robin Emmons are all heroes who put other peoples needs before their own. Robin Emmons displays hero like qualities through her good actions.

Darrel, or Darry has always wanted to become something amazing in life, but sadly when his parents died in a fatal car crash, he was left to raise his two younger brothers, Sodapop, and Ponyboy. More specifically, Darrel chooses his gang over his potential future to care for his friends but sadly, “. . . Darry has never really gotten over not going to college” (Hinton 109). Basically, anybody would choose to finish a career over a more strenuous life of arduous occupations. Of course, Darry would have chosen college over two jobs, but because of his compassion towards the gang, he would choose them over anything.
When most people think of a hero, they may think of a fireman, police officer, or a soldier. Although this is true, my definition of a 'hero ' is someone who does something dangerous or brave to save another. Someone who just doesn 't get themselves out of a situation, but they also reach out and try to save the others. There are only a select few people who are brave, compassionate and selfless enough, to spend their days improving the world one act at a time with no regard for personal risk or reward. Frederick Douglass was such a man, and he saved the lives of many slaves.
What makes Nora Rodriguez a hero is that she helps Central Americans with their immigration paperwork, according to the text Mayela Sanchez the author of the text states,"... a Honduran woman runs a small business helping Central Americans with their immigration paper". She helps them making them fill out forms and letters so they can be sent to the immigration office.

Given Darry’s accomplishments, it is clear that he would have been a fantastic student and would have made his parents proud. Coming from a working class background, he would very likely have been the first person in his family to go to college, serving a role model for his younger brothers. Despite his parent 's death, Darry could have forgone his responsibilities, since he is an adult and still attend college, leaving his brothers to survive on their own in foster care, or a boys’ home. However, he does not take this option and instead, Darry assumes
