This quote from the book states Johnny saved kids from dying in a burning church“the door was blocked by flames, pushed open the window and tossed out the nearest kid.”(p.92) It shows that he saved kids from burning in a church. A hero helps others at any cost making people use them as an example of good stewardship. Greasers are not always good but some are kind people. Pony defiantly was a hero who helped others. Dally did not care he was not a hero and that shows the reader he was not.
Stacey 's actions proved that he was a very brave and smart boy, who loved his family and that he was willing to fight for the land and do whatever he could to help save it even willing to take consequences for it. Have you ever broke down a bus? Well Stacey came up with the idea to dig a ditch, then fill it with water so it would look like a puddle and when the bus drove into it then it would break down it ended up working and the white children had to walk until the bus was fixed. He did this so the bus would stop splashing him and his siblings. On the first day of school they got the Logan’s dirty so it was time for payback.
Furthermore, Dally Winston demonstrates his heroism when he dies saving Johnny from the burning church. “But I remembered Dally pulling Johnny through the window of the burning church; Dally giving us his gun, although it could mean jail for him; Dally risking his life for us, trying to keep Johnny out of trouble.” (Hinton 154). Loyalty is about how much one is willing to sacrifice for another person. Darry sacrificed his college education, his degree, his future because of his sense
A group of heros that showed an act of bravery and courage are the firemen and policemen during 9/11 in 2001. The two twin towers were full of smoke and flames, but the firemen job was to get as much people out as possible. They did not know if they were either going to die or live but they did not care because all that mattered was saving as much people as possible. When both of the twin towers fell, many firemen were still in trapped in there and those firemen will always be remembered for the act of their bravery and courage. These group of firemen stood out of the rest because they risked their lives to save people they do not even know, this is a real hero.

In the article, What Makes a Hero, the author says that a hero is “someone who is willing to make a personal sacrifice for the benefit of others”, and in the novel, The Outsiders, Johnny is the main hero of the story. He is a kid whose parents never cared for him, and even went as far as to beat him. He is part of a social gang called the Greasers, and throughout the story you can see that this gang, and the members in it, are Johnny’s real family. The article, What Makes a Hero, is about the idea of what a hero is, and what would make a hero.

Even Dally cares about him, which is seen when Dally goes out of his way to help him and Johnny. Darry is also seen to care about him as well, which is seen when Darry is in tears begging Ponyboy for forgiveness, which is a momentous as Darry didn't even cry at his parents' funeral. The more obvious or stereotypical action of a hero that Ponyboy executes is when he saves the children from the burning church. Jerry Wood told Ponyboy to stay back, but Ponyboy knew he had to help and assist these children, and took it upon himself to save these children, which is very

Waitstill and Martha Sharp were two highly rare individuals. I personally felt very touched and thankful for Martha and Waitstill Sharp because my grandfather was saved by a man with the same righteousness and bravery as the Sharps. Not only were the Sharps not Jewish, but they were also Americans. These two beings had no relation to the people they helped, yet still risked their lives to do so.

One of the main reasons I can mostly relate myself to Ponyboy is because he is a caring person. I myself care about people even if I don’t know them which is one of the reasons I would like to do something in the medical field when I grow up. Some places were Ponyboy was caring was when he saw the church on fire and immediately ran as he heard the children screaming for help. When
