All those things are sacrifices football, time, and he also sacrificed college. Dally helped whoever needed it. Such as he saved his brother Johnny when he was hurt in the fire, he pulled Johnny out which caused his self to get hurt. Then he knocked Ponyboy out. You would have to be a real hero to do something like that to someone you love.
However, heroism can take place in our everyday lives by simple brave actions. A hero has many noble qualities such as courage, humility, patience, being selfless and caring. They will put other people before themselves and make sure others are content. Heros are also intelligent and like to think ahead to plan on a good result. Although Victor very well fits the role of a tragic hero with a fatal flaw, he also fits the role of a hero.
For instance, "Beowulf" is strong and brave but he is also vain and greedy. "Beowulf 's" heroic qualities most definitely affect his story. Usually the epic heroes would go through a change. They would have a change of heart or would learn from their pilgrimage. They would see the enormous picture and would learn from all of their mistakes that they had made.
A hero is a person who would risk their lives and put themselves in danger to help anyone they can, and is a person who cares about more than themselves. Ponyboy was a hero for two things, Dallas for two as well and Darry for one reason. In “The Outsiders,” Ponyboy, Dally, and Darry are all heros for what they have all done. Ponyboy fits the definition of hero by saving the group of children in the burning church in windrixville without hesitation, “I started at a dead run for the Church,”(78). Ponyboy didn't even think about himself getting hurt, but to only save the children from the church.
One of the greatest thing Johnny did to show is bravery as being a hero was by going into a burning church to save little kids. Johnny knew it was dangerous but he still went in anyways. Because of him going into the burning to save the little childrens he got bunt on the back because a wood of fire fell on him. That caused him to be seriously injured and in a critical condition. Johnny surrendered his life for the little kids.
Miracle's Boys Final Writing Assessment One theme from the book Miracle’s Boys by Jacqueline Woodson is that being a hero could cost you your life. This theme really resonates with me be due to how tragic their father's death was and how sudden it was. This theme is from chapter 9 when Tyree tells us (the reader) on how his father was taken from this world.Just based on the theme it could mean that someone in the book was being heroic and it lead to them going to or did die being a hero.An example of using this theme in real life is, firefighters each day risk their lives to save people from burning buildings.According to Firehousenews.com, about 100 firefighters die each year being a hero. This means that trying to save something/someone
Both Pony and Johnny has saved the children, Ponyboy was the first to get out if the church but when Johnny attempted to escape he got hit by a blazing piece of tinder. “jerked loose and ran on. All I could think was: We started it. We started it. We started it!” and “I leaped out the window and heard timber crashing and the flames roaring right behind me.
In the book The Outsiders written by S.E Hinton has been and still is a favorite among its readers, the book focuses on group identity and individuality. I connected with the book because it shows how close friends can be, they can be almost family. Over time the character Johnny has developed, he became more brave and was willing to kill someone to save his friends and himself, he is intuitive, selfless and optimistic. Johnny thinks that there is still good in the world no matter what happens. Johnny often feels afraid, he doesn’t want to go home because of what his parents do to him.
When the fire is dead it is evident that there is more fighting in the book. Ironically at the end of the story the boys are saved by a fire. At the end of the story, Ralph hides from Jack in the forest and Jack decides to smoke him out. By doing this Jack sets the whole forest on fire which attracts the attention of a ship that is passing by. Even though the boys were saved by a fire it was a fire that was started with an evil intention, not the original fire.
Also, when attempting to keep out the four boys that do not agree to join the savage tribe, another boy is killed by a rock that is pushed from above. These boys lose sight of rescue and push their ways upon unwilling members. This book is full of symbolism, from the conch to the island itself. The symbol that is most important is the fire, because the fire represents hope of rescue, a safe society with rules, and also destruction. First, fire is the most important symbol due to the smoke it produces as a signal for rescue.
When you turn on the nightly news and all you see is the bad in the world, the hurt, and the corruption that has engulfed us as a society, it is nice to see someone do something not because they will get paid or become famous, but because they know its simple the right thing to do. This story fits the concept of a hero most similar to Bernardo’s explaination of a hero. Riggs’ saved his family and risked his life not because thats what people would expect but because he had the responsiblity to take care of them. Just like Bernardo states, he did this “because he loves them and wants to”. Riggs displayed the kind of courage it takes to be a hero.
That sort of political influence (especially one so set on not being corrupt) caused a domino effect of political and social reform across the nation. Laws to protect public health and welfare emerged, anti-trust legislation destroyed existing monopolies and helped prevent future monopolies, big business lost power, unionization of most industries, and dissolving of political machines helped relieve the nation from oppression. Reform against social injustice, child labor laws, environmental protection laws, the 17th, 18th, and 19th amendments, and many more Women’s Suffrage ideas were other important changes made during this time. Speaking of Women’s Suffrage, another incredibly important group/movement that took place in this period of time. The Women’s Right Movement came to be due to the lack of voting rights, unfair wages, and unfair hours.
For example texting and driving, you choose to text or reply back and in most cases it caused deaths of not only you but other people involved. In the story Ponyboy decided to go into the abandoned church, which was on fire, to help get the kids stuck inside get out, Johnny chose to follow and help. Right before Johnny was exiting the church a piece of timber fell on his back which caused his back to be broken and he was burned severely. Johnny ended up not making it and in his letter he said “Listen, I don’t mind dying now. It’s worth it.
