A hero is born
Transcript of A hero is born
By: Anagha Anil
Franklin D. Roosevelt
Abraham Lincoln has commitment because as "The son of a Kentucky frontiersman, Lincoln had to struggle for a living and for learning...Lincoln made extraordinary efforts to attain knowledge while working on a farm, splitting rails for fences and keeping a store in New Salem, Illinois." This shows that he had commitment because even though he had so much work to do he would still put time and effort into learning new things . A hero needs commitment to do his/her job because if he/she didn't have commitment the hero would be lazy, not show up and be slow.
Jackie Robinson was determined because Branch Rickey decided to break the barrier between whites and blacks. He looked for one that could stand all the taunts, jeers and hostility but also be able to perform well. Jackie showed that a person who wants to make a change must first change himself (Sullivan). This shows determination because Jackie Robinson has to have been determined to stop racism to endure all of the hostility and hate . A hero must have determination so they can last through all of the tough situations they get into.
Everyone knows who the strongest, bravest and most amazing superhero is, don't you? Yes, it's Arial Johnson, the newest hero, Arial used to live on a farm with 8 brothers and ran away one year ago. Arial has nature and animal powers she uses to fight of f bad guys. She is also amazing because she possesses these three super characteristics: Courage from Franklin D. Roosevelt, Commitment from Abraham Lincoln, and Determination from Jackie Robinson.
Franklin D. Roosevelt has courage because in 1921, Roosevelt contracted poliomyelitis. He didn't have much control of his legs but he fought back until he regained use of his legs (Freidel). This shows that Roosevelt is courageous because if another person was in his situation they most likely would have given up but Roosevelt kept fighting. It is important for heroes to have courage because they need to be able to go through all kinds of tough situations.
All of those amazing characteristics from Franklin D. Roosevelt, Abraham Lincoln and Jackie Robinson Arial has too! We may not know much about Arial's past but we'll find out soon. We'll find out how great a hero she is soon but until then... if you're ever in trouble Arial to the rescue!
