How is a hero described? Most people describe a hero as someone or something that is always doing good and helping others without being forced. Hero’s are not always benefiting from helping others but are happy to know they are doing good. A hero is not someone who is selfish and will not sacrifice everything for the good of others. Malala is a real life hero that is powerful and stands up for what she believes in, even though she knows there will be harsh consequences.
One thing is true about a hero, that they have distinct qualities that set them above normal people. Heroes can also be wavered and effected by the characteristics of the society they were created in. However, heroes are not real but are created, usually to give hope to people or to provide a boost of morale to people who are being oppressed in away. If the average American, who would be accustomed to Marvel heroes, were to look at the Anglo-Saxon hero, they may not even consider them a true hero by today’s standards. The Anglo-Saxon heroic code consisted of being able to
Persuasive task:Heroes If there were no villains there would still be heroes.Heroes are defined as people who are admired for their courage,outstanding achievements and noble qualities.These moral values are what make a hero and with these values people can be thought of as heroes.People become heroes by how they help others, there qualities and the actions they make to help the world be a better place even if no villains intervene or create problems. Anyone can be courageous but only a hero can put it to action.For someone to be courageous they can help people with problems that occur naturally or that they are born with.An example of this is when a group of people went to play on a frozen lake during winter these people came very close to death since the ice beneath broke and they were stuck in freezing cold water.As the people were freezing a young man named mark keicker came along and saw that they needed help.Mark keicker managed to pull the people out of the lake and save them from death.In this example no villain created the problem it was all an accident that the ice broke beneath the group of people.

Another large view of a hero would be a brave soul that contributes to society such as a soldier or fire fighter. These individuals pursue dangerous jobs that are extremely helpful and defined as heroic. But there is another class of people that classify as heroes that go unnoticed by society. The most common people can be heroes, such as a teacher, parent, or friend. A teacher spends his time educating students and helping them succeed in life.
Tim O’Brien talking to the reader when he says “he had been braver than he had ever thought possible, but how he had not been so brave as he wanted to be.” (Page 152) If this did not happen then Norman would never had mentioned not wining the Silver Star.

I agree a good hero and a good leader do share similar qualities. Heroes and leaders share similar qualities, such as standing up for what an individual believes in and confidence. When thinking about the question, does a good hero make a good leader? Personally, I believe a good leader creates a good hero. An individual who can lead a group of individuals in a positive and safe way can be a good hero.

But back to my original question, why isn't everyone a hero? This leads to my topic, which is about what stops people from being heroes, which includes our moral choices, circumstances and ability to sacrifice. Specifically, I want to discuss what makes a hero, but more importantly why most people are unable to become heroes. The first thing which I believe makes a hero and at the same time destroys potential heroes is the simple fact that heroes consistently choose to be good, and through their goodness they inspire others to become better.
Beowulf and Odysseus are two famous epic heroes in the texts Beowulf and The Odyssey. They both go through the “Hero’s Journey,” and display many characteristics of a hero.
