During the video "The Hero's Adventure", by Joseph Cambell there are a lot of interesting facts and points of views. One statement particularity caught my attention right off the bat. "Sometimes it seems to me that we ought to feel pity for the hero instead of admiration, So many of them have sacrificed their own needs". I mean think about it, most people grow up with Hero's inside Disney movies and pretend to be the Hero's and mimic the glory of it all. Though it isn't really glorious to be a hero is it?
Veterans are those who served in the military and fought in the war. They are someone who supported the country. Without them, United States of America would not be formed. Freedom, liberty, and pursuit of happiness are rights that we have today, but without the veteran these rights will be all gone and America will not be the America that we see today. They are the one who make our dream possible.
Have you ever thought about people fighting in a war? Not how that war ended up doing, but each individual fighting. Some people are drafted into a war, and forced to fight for the side their put into. But the hero, Nicholas Lopez fought willingly to save the country that he just moved to. My great-grandfather, was a hero because he fought in world war 2, after many other hardships in his life.
Are modern day heros much different than ancient day heros? Heros in people 's lives could mean a lot to people. Children look up to their dads or there grandpa. Many sports stars are heros to people like Derek Jeter, David Ortiz and Yadiar Molina. My modern day hero is Donald J. Trump.
The National Anthem is something many Americans hold dear to their hearts. When football players started to kneel instead of stand with the others as a protest, Americans started to become angry. Football players should stand for the national anthem for the soldiers, to help unify America, and to find another way to protest. First of all, football players should stand for our soldiers. Our soldiers have fought for our country and they fight for our flag.
I have never realized how important Veterans Day and why we celebrate Veterans Day. We celebrate Veterans Day on the 11th day, 11th hour and the 11th month. We celebrate it to honor military veterans that served in the United States Armed Forces.

I am strongly against people who have heroes as their role model, because it is dangerous if people blind worship with heroes.
Why are veterans America's heroes? I know some of you think of superman or spider man. But just because they don’t necessarily halve super powers. Although veterans don't halve superpowers they are heroes in ways I will explain in my essay. One way veterans are heroes is because they are loyal because if they weren't loyal they would give away information to the side that we are trying to beat in war or combat.
Why are veterans are considered heroes? I think veterans are considered heroes because they put there life on the line all the time for are freedom. Every time they step out in fight they have a changs of getting shot or killed but they will not stop. They reck there life so we won’t have too.
Heroes in our society are revered and respected as Joseph Campbell reminds us: “A hero is someone who has given his or her life to something bigger than oneself” (Joseph Campbell). Heroes exist in all societies and throughout history. Maybe they are not always on the news or from the movies, but their words and their actions never fail to resonate across their feats. A hero gives of himself and dedicates himself to causes which better others and their society unlike individuals who are self serving, greedy, and cruel.
