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.
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.
A hero does not care for only them-self. They aren’t greedy or ignorant. Heroes take problems in a rational way and deal with their problems calmly and usually without violence. For example, Martin Luther King Jr. was just a normal man, like you or me, but he led violence free protests and eventually got equal rights for blacks. That is what being a hero is about.
For example, a 15 year old boy named Temar Boggs who did something incredible.. A little girl was missing for 2 hours until Temar and a friend noticed her in the back seat of a car. Temar and his friend chased the car for 15 minutes until the car stopped to finally let the little girl. Once they took the 5 year old to the police, everyone called them heroes. Words could not describe how happy they were.
Have you ever wondered why people decide to become heros? In the articles Jackie Robinson changed Baseball, theseus and minotaur, the woman who helped anne frank died at 100, they all have heros and important to the society. Also, they went through a lot and made the society better.
Heroism in our culture could be very misinterpreted. People tend to think that hero’s need to be perfect because they are role models, saviors, or peacemakers. An example of a hero for me is Josh Hamilton, an outfielder for the Texas Rangers. Josh Hamilton started out as a power hitting prospect for the Tampa Bay Rays but struggled with addictions to drugs. He spent a short stint for the Reds before the Texas Rangers picked him up.
Even if it means losing theirs, heroes will perform almost anything to save innocent beings. For example, my great grandma saw a drunk driver operating the car towards her daughter, so she jumped in front of the car to save my grandma’s life. My great-grandmother’s actions are the reason I am alive today Since my great grandmother jumped in
A lot of times real heroes and role models go unknown. We focus ourselves on celebrities and people who really do nothing more but their job of acting or singing; some bringing bad influences. Real heroes are the ones who put their life on the line for the people they love, the country they love. People that in no way expected their lives to take a sharp turn and getting a little taste of hell while at the same time being praised although not by many. At a young age being in trouble with the cops no one would think such a kid would end up being a true American hero.
What makes someone a hero? Most people would say someone who saves the day or has super powers or even characters in books are heroes. Antigone is a young woman in the play Antigone by Sophocles, Antigone is considered a hero by many for giving up her life for her brother and going against the law in 44 B.C. While Terry Malloy is considered a hero in the movie On the Waterfront for also going against rules. Malloy would be considered a rough kid who got into a bad situation with a group of mugs while working on the dock, not only does he save the day for himself but for others that are working on the docks as well. Antigone and Terry both go against rules for what they believe is right and become heroes.
It may not be noticeable in a tiny town, or even in a large place, but there is heroism everywhere. Heroism can be seen during the Depression everywhere, it can be seen in children through the elderly. The African Americans during this time are going through hard work and inequality, but they still went through it, hoping they could make a change for future generations. The whites were also heroes by surviving through the Depression too. Being a hero does not mean a person wins, but they try for what that individual believes is the better situation. That is not the only way to have heroism if a person stands up for what they believe in, that is considered heroism too. Heroes sacrifice themselves for the better and stand up for what they believe in, they are determined and firm, and they have courage and fortitude.
Heroes are not defined or created by people or events that shape who they are but they are born to make a change. Throughout history there has been several heroes born to make a change. Heroes can be traced throughout history and still continue to exist. Heroes are born with a greater intention for their futures than mindlessly working through life; they are born to be leaders. Real heroes are born to set standards for the future and to lead the present.
society's beliefs, regulations, and restrictions. There are heroes for both men and women of all ages. Every society has their own heroes, whether they are heroes because of their wealth, political career, war triumphs, athletic achievements or social leads.
“If you can tell me who your heroes are, I can tell you how you are going to turn out. It is really important to have the right heroes.” – Warren Buffet.
