THE FAULT IN OUR STARS hero project
Transcript of THE FAULT IN OUR STARS hero project
"Heroes are the people who notice things." Is it important to have a hero? Yes, even if you have to be
your own hero. Heroes bring hope in times
of sadness. Sometimes, you need to be positive,
and someone else (your hero) shows you that. But
sometimes, you have to be your own hero, telling
yourself to be calm, to be
happy, and positive, to hope
for the best. Heroes are
always needed, even in
small acts. Who is the hero in the book? Augustus Walters is the hero of the TFIOS, because he showed Hazel how to live with cancer, without being a full-time- cancer-patient. He sacrificed his own health, just to go to Amsterdam with Hazel, he used his own wish on Hazel, just to make her happy. He even stayed with his previous girlfriend to make her happy even though she constantly put him down. Augustus would tell his parents that their 'encouragements' were helpful, and played baseball when he could to make them happy. Augustus Walters continuously sacrificed his happiness and well-being for the happiness of of others, which, in the long run, made him happy. And that, makes him a hero. "It would be a privilege to have my heart broken by you." "I liked Augustus Walters. I really, really, really liked him. ... I liked that he was a tenured professor in the Department of Slightly Crooked Smiles with a dual appointment in the Department of Having a Voice That Made My Skin Feel More Like Skin.." (The Fault in Our Stars, 31) "I was wondering if you could write a eulogy
for Hazel.. I've got notes and everything, but if you could just make it into a coherent whole, or whatever, or even just tell me what I should say differently.." The Fault in Our Stars, 312-313 ..or better yet, the entire note Augustus wrote to Van Houten.. What do you think makes a hero? Some one who doesn't scar the world. Some one who notices things Hazel Grace, she notices things, she doesn't scar the world, she doesn't fear oblivion. My
Heroes Who is your hero? Do you regret spending your wish on Van Houten? My wish wasn't to meet Van Houten. It was for Hazel Grace to meet him, to get answers. I spent my wish on a Cancer-Perk dinner, a kiss in the Anne Frank house, to be in Love with Hazel Grace. I don't regret it at all. You always wanted to leave your mark on the world? Do you feel disappointed that you didn't? I did leave my mark. I left a scar on Hazel Grace. If you could say one thing to Hazel, what would it be? Okay?
