Preposterous: Does It Means To Be A Patriotic Hero

Good Essays
To be a patriotic hero is to be willing to kill anything and anyone that gets in the way of making the U.S a safer country to live in; that means killing innocent children. To be a humane hero is to not believe in killing innocent children, or in general people to save others. It all comes down whether you want to be the hero soldier or the society hero. At the end, one will be a murderer and the other the heroic saint. Let’s say that the soldier did fire the drone and bombed the kids. Thousands of lives saved after sacrificing 1-5 bystanders. The soldier has worked very hard and has literally sweat blood and tears just for that moment of success. Yes, to kill innocent people is his success to save thousands upon thousands. Some will say that it is his duty to do what he has to do in order to protect his country, but it is not right to say there is good killing and bad killing. …show more content…
Usually people believe in quantity over quality:more is better. To believe in this logic is preposterous because nobody has the right to say that this one life doesn't really matter because the other ten are worth saving. Who knows, maybe those bombed kids could of became scientists that would have came up with a cure to cancer. Yet, we don't even give them a chance to even live life to the fullest. For example, women that have abortions are willing to kill their baby just because they do not want to have a baby at the time because of person issues. So, the mother sacrifices the baby in order for her to have a less stress life. The baby’s life was less important because it wasn't even born yet, so the mother thought her life was more worth it than her own baby’s. It is morally wrong to actually choose whether a life is worth living or

    When you hear the word "hero", does your mind conjure up an image of an intrepid being with extraordinary powers? Do you visualize a superhuman whose main objective in life is to prevent evil and protect the innocent civilians? If you did, you must be envisioning the stereotypical hero (and yes, that means your answer is still valid, but it's not the answer that I was looking for). When I was a child, I too, used to believe that heroes were the ones who wore capes and would constantly fight villains…

    Some people believe that a hero should be strong, brave, and smart. Others believe that a hero should be someone who gives back to the community.

    A hero doesn’t have to fly or be super rich to be a hero. A hero can be any normal and everyday person you see walking down the street. When they are faced with a tough challenge they are thinking of others instead of themselves, putting themselves in possible danger, and not being dishonorable but noble and humble. Heroes are people who are passionate towards others in need more than themselves. As shown in “The Narrative of the Life of Frederick Douglass, an American Slave” by Frederick Douglass…
