Finally, she graduated college and got her first job as a Cardiology Nurse Assistant at Mercy Care in Cedar Rapids. She has been a nurse for 17 years now, and is one of the best around. This is why she is a hero. The heart in a man beats 70 times a minute on average. But, one man from Cedar Rapids wasn’t so lucky. He came up just short. It was just a normal afternoon in the life of Kim Roemig, a Cardiology Nurse in Cedar Rapids, when one of her final patients of the day came in. Just as they were waiting to get his medicine, something didn’t feel right. Kim got this instinct that there was something wrong. This man had a heart attack just as the door closed to the Emergency Room, where she pushed him because she knew that something felt different. If it hadn’t have been for Kim, this man would not be with us right now. Itś crystal clear that she deserves to be a hero. …show more content…

Anyone can be a hero. For instance, Robert Bentz was being selfless when he put himself between a driver of a stolen car and Bentz’ son. “In the split second of seeing the car coming straight at [his son] Roudy, Bentz cranked his steering wheel as hard as possible. That put him between the oncoming car and his son.” Though Bentz is a normal person, he was still able to save his son from injury.

Tires sliding across wet asphalt, the rush of the dense green forest racing by in a disorienting display, the ear piercing, stomach churning sound of metal on metal. Her eyes snapped open taking in her surroundings, the EKG machine giving a sound to her erratic racing heart. The room looked like your typical hospital room and even had the terrible sterile smell.

Debi Mazar is an actress who stated, “A hero is somebody who is selfless, who is generous in spirit, who just tried to give back as much as possible and help people. A hero to me is someone who saves people and who really, deeply cares.” Heroes are relevant to everyone, because at some point, everyone has had a hero. Sadly, today’s society degrades the meaning of the word “hero”. Heroes are an important aspect of life, but famous people are not always heroes.
