Heroes. When thinking of the ‘heroes’, what comes to mind? To some, it may be Superman or someone else similar to him who has particular strengths and abilities in which they use to save others. For others it may be some one that has saved ones life or even their parents. It could be the soldiers that fight for your country or the football players that win the matches for your country.
Dictionary Definition of 'hero': 1) A Man of distinguished courage or ability, admired for his brave deeds and noble qualities, 2) a person who, in the opinion of others, has heroic qualities or had performed a heroic act and is regarded as a model or ideal, 3) the principal male character in a story, play, film ect.
The word ‘hero’ can be defined numerous ways. Courage, selflessness, strength (physical or mental). It angers me when one says that a football player or a similar celebrity is their hero. Why? Because they should be one’s role model, not one’s hero. In my opinion, a hero is the men that go out and fight for one’s country. Who risk their life for others good. Who aren’t in it for the payment. That much is obvious because footballers get paid more than soldiers. I think that that is disgraceful.
In fact, no. A hero is someone who is courageous and selfless. Someone that’d do anything for others whether it means risking their life trying to do so.
Who is you hero? What are your opinions on heroes? And, most importantly, should a soldier be paid more than a football player? I
beg ask you to comment and let me know.
