In the supporting paragraphs above, it shows that classical heros are more glorified. This means that they are a little bit exaggerated almost and they almost fit into the fantasy genre. Modern heroes are more selfless. By selfless I mean they put others in front of themselves to protect them from being harmed both mentally, and physically.

A hero(ine) must help others in a significant way and fight the evil that troubles the peole (whether the hero(ine) is victorious or not). They are compassionate towards others (sometimes even the villains), brave while fighting the evil, and persistent when facing obstacles. Heroes are an essential part of one’s life.

And some terms like altruism, cooperation, bystander help, and impact of receiving help etc. Pro social behavior is an important contributor to a well-functioning society, whether it is provided through direct help to individuals, through charity work, or through helping to save the atmosphere.

Mahdi Jaber Mrs. Schwartz British Literature Dec 5 2015 Heroes “Heroes represent the best of ourselves, respecting that we are human beings. A hero can be anyone from Gandhi to your classroom teacher, anyone who can show courage when faced with a problem. A hero is someone who is willing to help others in his or her best capacity (Martin).” Respectively, anyone can be a hero but heroes are classified as people with aspects including Faith, loyalty, modesty, courtesy, honor, and bravery. Merriam-Webster’s Dictionary defines a hero as “a person who is admired for great or brave acts of fine qualities.” Bilbo and Sir Gawain have many aspects of a hero and they face similar experiences but their experiences also differ in many ways. Bilbo and Gawain’s stories compare and contrast in many ways including their background or experience, their approach, and their resolution but both heroes return back to their origin feeling heroic.
The definition of a hero varies among each person’s thoughts and perspectives towards the hero. Some people choose their hero according to their looks, others choose them as a person who has a great personality and calls for what is good. A hero influences people around him to follow his good actions and manners. Not all heroes deserve to be named heroes since some only strive for fame. Dictionary.com defines the word hero as “a man of distinguished courage or ability, admired for his brave deeds and noble qualities”.
In my opinion a true hero is brave, altruistic, compassionate, moral, and is determined to make a change in the world. I was attracted to two transcend peace hereos, Andrew Benson Greene, Jr. and Candace Lynne Lightner, because they both represented the qualities I see a true hero in, they were both determined to change the lives of others, by helping them overcome the life tragedies and crisis that they have been through, whether it was from unacceptable judgment toward drunk drivers hit and run's or by the effects of war and the violent environment. Candace Lightner or Candy Lightner as others call her, was famous for finding a noble organization called Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD). There are a number of reasons to why, she created it. Firstly, as an outraged mother, who lost her 13 years old daughter, due to a tragic struck from behind accident by a

HARNESSING THE POWERS OF A HERO! “The people we call heroes do not usually start out as unusual. Often they are ordinary people subject to ordinary human weaknesses—fear, doubt, and self-interest. In fact, they live ordinary lives until they distinguish themselves by having to deal with an injustice or a difficult situation. Only then, when they must respond in thought and in action to an extraordinary challenge, do people begin to know their strengths and weaknesses.” Assignment: Do people learn who they are only when they are forced into action?
Fortunate people only get a chance to be mentored by admirable bosses in the world today. These bosses enthuse, prepare and encourage their employees in reliable but exceptional ways.

Superbosses is a book worth positive reception. The book delineates the variation between conventional managers and these exceptional leaders and highlights their preeminent practices.
Fred Rogers once said “I am always comforted by realizing that there are still so many helpers - so many caring people in this world.” In this quote, he analyzed the nature of helping as well as the number of like-minded people in the world. He explained that the helpers were more important than anything else to a hero.
