We need to realize all the outcomes of our decisions and choices to be brave enough to choose the right options even if there is risk involved. Andre Trocme's efforts in helping Jewish people and putting his own life at risk is truly heroic. He believed that "Loving, forgiving, and doing good to our adversaries is our duty"(264). He knew the option he is chosen is very risky, but he believed that right thing was being done. Andre Trocme had to experience heartbreaking incident during his childhood, but he did not let that incident affect
On Beowulf, if you fought a monster naked and head-on, and even won, you are brave. Nowadays, being brave can be seen in any manner not just by fighting others. Honor is of great importance and every man should dream of glory and victory. They are also expected to be loyal to their leader or to someone of importance to them. In Beowulf, for example, the dragon, being loyal, kept the treasure and gave his life for it even though the real owners already died.
He had to teach himself how to be independent and deal with situations on his own, since all his parents did to him was reject him and be ignorant to his doings. Dallas Winston was careless of what he did. No matter what, he had no regrets. He just wanted to show that nobody could break him and he could break as many rules as he wanted.
Also, he only wants Doodle to walk so that the narrator doesn’t have to take Doodle around everywhere. If Doodle could walk, he could walk himself with his brother.

If they aren’t brave then heroes can’t stand up for what is right. Persistence is another trait that heroes must have. They must persist when facing obstacles because the obstacles prepare heroes for the final battle against evil. Having these traits, any person or animal who fulfill the two purposes of a hero can be called
Similar to honor, courage was also very important. Beowulf being a very courageous man, is motivated by the desire to prove his valor, through accomplishing brave feats. By accomplishing these feats of bravery, Beowulf would boast about them in detail at Hrothgar’s hall. Even Beowulf’s mission to kill Grendel was motivated by a desire to prove himself and improve his reputation. When boasting about his about his feats, Beowulf would often give credit to god for his bravery and
When this sense of justice becomes stronger than the pull of his father, Sarty makes the courageous decision to act against his father. Throughout the story, Sarty must deal with his father 's bravery, but also his cowardice.
Norman Schwarzkopf once said, “It doesn’t take a hero to order men into battle. It takes a hero to be one of those men who goes into battle.” When an ordinary person sacrifices something to save another, they go through mental obstacles. The ordinary people who help others are considered heroes, and they persevere through those challenges with bravery and courage. Heroism is being selfless and saving others in times of desperation, meaning that these heroes will not run away from obstacles, but will push through them.
A good leader would fight battles with their crew members and risk his or her own life to benefit and/or save the rest. The best example is when Beowulf is about the fight Grendel, he instructs his crew members to stay back and let himself fight this battle. I believe Beowulf is a good leader as well as a good hero.
Perseus’ drive to kill Medusa and to rescue a helpless girl makes him courageous. Odysseus’ willingness to always do the thing that everyone else fears and preservers through them makes him courageous. Wesley Autrey’s impulse to save the man and risk himself makes him courageous. Everyone has a bit of courage in their soul, and these people in particular have used it to the best of their abilities, and this makes them
The police have always been people you can call when in an emergency. They have always been seen as the good guys who are there to ensure your safety, which is why it is very important to trust police men as well as firefighters because if you don’t it may be hard to follow their instructions when in a dangerous situation. They are the few brave citizens who risk their lives on a daily basis to ensure their communities safety, so why do people have such a hard time trusting them? Perhaps it may be because of the recent police brutality assaults, which have become more and more recent, for example; the very popular and over publicized Eric Garner and Michael Brown brutality cases, which have become a major topic of controversy. Some other major police brutality cases are; the shooting of Michael Brown in Ferguson, which ignited many protests within the community, as there had
In a split second from looking at her phone, she had clipped the median of the road and her car started to roll, which is when she was ejected 300 feet from the car. For this young lady, her life ended because she was texting while driving, but she could have easily been putting on makeup, opening a soda, or even talking to a passenger and still have been in that fatal car crash. AT&T and many other cell phone companies are putting information out there so people know the dangers of being distracted while driving. States need to start making aware the dangers that come from distracted driving and the effects that it can have on not only the driver but everyone on the road. Having a mandatory class for new drivers about the dangers of distracted driving could possibly help reduce the statistics of
I think Odysseus fulfills the description of a hero. A hero is defined as a cunning, confidence, brave, determined and a strong leader. A hero risks their own lives for the well being of others. He uses his knowledge, his determination, and also his braveness to save him and his men. When the suitors plan to kill Odysseus son, Telemachas, Odysseus speaks up to his men, “Friends, have we never been in danger before this?
Chris, The Wilderness Hero Chris McCandless was a very heroic young man. In the book Into the Wild by Jon Krakauer he demonstrated independence, bravery, and youthfulness. Chris (or as he liked to be called Alexander Supertramp) was a young man who hitchhiked to Alaska to see what living off the wilderness was like. Chris was a hero because he inspired so many with his fearlessness with what he did in his life. Chris was a hero because he was fearless, brave, and independent.
