Who Is A Hero?
are the same things, and both of these should not just exist in a hero, but also in every one of us.
even say, humane. This quality, even though not as important as the other two, makes up a hero s
heart and soul, his inner strength, and that is the most important strength of all.
Brave, fearless, heroic, bold all synonyms that describe a hero. All these could just be
outvoted. That is, indeed, true courage. Only a hero can be brave and courageous enough to
stand alone when he is completely outvoted and outnumbered. A wonderful example of this
quality would be in the play Twelve Angry Men when juror number eight has the courage to
stand alone when he is outvoted 11-1. This does not stop him, and he keeps trying, until he
reverses the vote 11-1 in his favor. Even though I do not consider this trait to be most important,
I do believe that it is one of the two most important qualities that make a hero. Finally, the last
and most important quality: intelligence.
One of the main qualities, intelligence, is the most important one. A hero can not be a
person, who has no clue of what is happening around him. In order to know what is going on, he
has to be intelligent. Intelligence and observation are the two main things that make the
distinction between a hero and a regular person. In order for someone to be called a hero, that
person must be intelligent enough to know when to make a move and whether it is the right one
to make. This, however is not the only quality a hero must posses. This quality, however, could
never exist without courage, which always works in conjunction with intelligence.
I don t believe there are any heroes left, but I never said there could never be any. Maybe
is the fact that we could strive to becoming a hero. Remember, heroes exist in every one of us,
we just have to find the key, which unlocks the chains that hold it deep inside every one of us.
