What is a Hero?
Transcript of What is a Hero?
"Anyone can be a hero, it's just the decision that they make which categorize them as a hero. "True heroism is remarkably sober, very undramatic. It is not the urge to surpass all others at whatever cost, but the urge to serve others at whatever cost."
— Arhur Ashe
Our definition of a hero is anybody or anything that can sacrifice something valuable for the good of the universe. They could also show a great act of bravery or a noble deed. A hero doesn't have to be some amazing person, a hero can be anyone.

Every hero must make important decisions. Here our examples of decisions heroes made from our eight hero stories:
An example of a hero is the grandpa from Birdfoot's Grandpa. He is a hero because he took the time to save the frogs, instead of putting them in jeopardy, by driving straight at them. The Poem informs us that the man had places to go but his decision was to stop, and move the frogs away from the road.
The Letter A
In this story, The mother had a child with special needs. Everyone told her just to abandon the kid, but she never gave up on him, though. She traveled the land in search of a cure, but no cure was found. When a cure wasn't available, she still loved her kid, Christy, and kept on trying to see if maybe she could teach him something. All the time, day and night, she tried, but she couldn't break through the barrier of Christy's mind. Then, on Christmas, the barrier was broken when Christy learned how to write the letter a with his toe. This shoes true love, as the mother never gave up on him.
A legendary hero is someone who does an amazing feat that is for the greater good. They are admired for great achievements or affected by grand events.
The Man in the water
