Heroism As we all hear the word “hero” that has been used for generation as a title for a person who has done something great and beyond expected, have you ever asked yourself the questions, “What is a hero? ” What is heroism? Is it heroism to have special abilities that enable you to perform something that is greater than what other have done? Does it take a lot of money and fame to be a hero? Is it heroism when a firefighter goes into a burning building Just to make sure that everyone are safely out? Can we call ourselves a hero?
Often we imagine heroism as risking or sacrificing one’s life, but there are many less dramatic acts of heroism that occur everyday in the world around us. Everyone of us has the capability of becoming a hero. But sometimes we Just not realize it. We are all heroes to someone when we make some sacrifices and serve on their behalf to change their lives for the better. Just like what Arthur Ashes said; “True heroism is remarkably sober, and very unidiomatic. It is not the urge to surpass all others at whatever cost, but the urge to serve others at whatever cost”
