Everyone loves a hero, we look up to them and we imagine ourselves being one someday. But just what is a hero?
Dictionary.com defines a hero as.
he·ro [heer-oh] noun, plural heroes.
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 has performed a heroic act and is regarded as a model or ideal: He was a local hero when he saved the drowning child.
The world loves a hero, look at movies and books, they are crammed packed with hero’s doing what hero’s do, saving people or themselves.
Here’s a question for you what about a person who stands up against the odds to do something that is against the culture, or the way everyone else does it? Could that person be a hero? Or what about a person who does something, like saving a life but is never noticed or recognized for it, could that person be a hero? Or what about you could you be a hero, could you do something that changes a persons life so they are never the same, change them for the better, could you do that? Would that make you a hero?
Here is my definition of a hero. “A person, who makes a radial impact on another person causing that person to be completely changed because of the interaction or experience.” In your mind would that be a hero? If you agree, then be encouraged, you are already a hero... We all love hero’s and we are all hero’s waiting for the chance to do what hero’s do...”Save a life.”
