Transcript of Heroes

Annelies Marie Frank was born on June 12th, 1929, in Frankfurt, Germany to Edith and Otto Frank. She had a sister named Margot who was 3 years older. Anne went to a Montessori School which was an all Jew School. On Anne's 13th birthday she was given a red checkered diary which she addressed to an imaginary friend called 'Kitty'. On July 5, 1942, Anne's family went into hiding in her Father's office building which they called the Secret Annex hidden by a bookcase attached to the wall. On 4th August 1944 Anne and others hiding in the Annex were arrested and sent to a concentration camp. Less then a year later Anne died on March 1st 1945 at the age of 15 from typhus along with her sister. HEROES A hero is someone who puts themselves at risk for the sake of someone else; they do things without thinking of themselves and are recognized for their courageous deeds. Some heroes inspire people and the world sees them as good. Definition of a hero: My heroes are Steve Irwin and Bethany Hamilton. M Y N E X T H E R O I S S T E V E I R W I N Bethany Hamilton Bethany Hamilton was born on February 8th, 1990 on the island of Kauai, Hawaii. She is the youngest of her family having her two brothers, Noah and Tim. At age 8, Bethany entered her first surf competition and won both the short and long board divisions. On Halloween, 2003, 13 year old Bethany was attacked by a 14-foot tiger shark whilst surfing of Kauai's North Shore. The shark left Bethany with a severed left arm. Remarkably, after just one-month after her attack, Bethany went back to the water so she could reach her goal of becoming a professional surfer. Now she is one of the top female surfers.

Bethany Hamilton is a hero, because when she was at her lowest, she overcame the one obstacle that could stop her and persevered. Steve Irwin is a hero to me because he risked his life showing us extraordinary animals whether they were gross or terrifying. He was extremely courageous and brave by doing this. A true hero acts with courage not bravado as we can see in the technique of visual imagery, for example, picture of Steve Irwin wrestling a 15ft crocodile. This shows how brave and courageous Steve Irwin was. Steve acted with courage not bravado by risking his life to show people what he loved. A true hero overcomes obstacles and perseveres; we can see this in the technique, visual imagery, for example a picture of Bethany Hamilton surfing after just coming back from a shark attack. This shows that Bethany could overcome obstacles and persevere. Bethany acted with courage which helped her overcome a traumatic event. Why are heroes Important? Heroes are important because they give us someone to be inspired by and to look up to. We can relate to our heroes and they give us hope to see that anything is achievable if we apply ourselves. Bethany Hamilton and Steve Irwin have many similarities. The passion in their lives has led to close encounters and sadly it did lead to one's loss. They both acted with courage and overcame obstacles. They are still now great role models to people and give a great source of hope to everyone. Why do we need heroes? We need heroes because they are inspirational and some of them make impacts on our lives. They encourage us to achieve larger things in life and their stories motivate us. By Sarah Pennisi
