What is a Hero?
Many times people are questioned and wonder what it takes to become a hero. Who could their hero be? What kind of test would this person have to pass to become one? Is there even a test to become a hero and if so when do you get to take it? A hero can be so many different things depending on the person you ask. Some may say a hero is like superman, they have freakish strength, super powers, some sort of laser vision. Some may say a hero is a soldier, someone who is willing to go to war to defend our country. No matter whom you ask their answer as to what a hero is will always be different. What I wrote on WallWisher was “A hero to me is someone who is willing to put everything behind them and stand for what they believe in, no matter what is thrown at them. They conquer everything in their paths to reach their goal. No matter if that means taking on fears, weaknesses, anything they have to do for the greater good. A hero considers it done.” I believe that a hero doesn’t have to be someone who goes and risks their lives. Yes that could be one aspect of a hero but to me that’s not the only way you can become one. A hero doesn’t have to have freaky super powers like laser vision to melt down the walls and obstructions that stand in their paths. To me a hero is simply one who is willing to stand for what they believe in no matter what may come their way. One of my many heroes is Martin Luther King Jr. he is my hero because he fought for what he believed in no matter what anyone said or did. He didn’t just go out and speak his mind he lived an example for many others who began to follow. He didn’t have to use aggression to get his point across. People knew exactly what he meant and he completed his tasks in a simple peaceful manner. The man lived through some rough incidents and just pushed them aside and still fought for what he believed in. One thing I highly respect him for is when his house was...
