5 Modern day heroes
As children we all had our favorite superheroes. We loved them, worshipped them, pretended to be them, dressed like them and even talked like them. Now that we’re adults, we are all too well aware that heroes are in high demand but can rarely be found. The overwhelming ugliness found everywhere in the world today, has desensitized us to the point where hardly anything seems shocking or repulsive anymore. Luckily we don’t need superpowers or a cape to make a difference in the world. To accomplish heroic acts, all we need is a willing mind and a willing heart.These people that I’m about to gladly mention have all proven that an ordinary person can achieve extraordinary feats and make a difference in the lives of others.
1. Bill Nye
William Sanford “Bill” Nye, popularly known as Bill Nye the Science Guy. He is an American science educator, comedian, television host, actor, writer, scientist and former mechanical engineer, best known as the host of the PBS children’s science show Bill Nye the Science Guy and for his many subsequent appearances in popular media as a science educator.
2. Rosa Parks
Rosa Louise McCauley Parks was an AfricanAmerican civil right activist. Her nicknames were “The first lady of civil rights” and “The mother of the freedom movement” The reason why she was a hero and still is to people is because of her past, her actions, her powerful voice. Rosa lived in the time where racism was very harsh back then. One day when she was riding the bus they demanded her to the back with the rest of her so called people so that a white man could have her seat. When she finally had enough she refused then started a protest not to ride the bus anymore. From there on she became a hero to a lot of people because she believed that their should be better rights than there was at that moment.
