“A hero is an ordinary individual who finds the strength to persevere and endure in spite of overwhelming obstacles.” –  Christopher Reeve


  • What does this quote mean to you?
  • Going back to what we discussed at the beginning of this unit, name two traits a hero should have and why they need those traits.
  • Who in your own life do you consider a hero?  Why?
  • Name one person from history that has the qualities of a hero?  Why would you pick that person?

This quote means that you can persevere and endure whatever comes toward you. A hero needs courage and strength to fight through all those overwhelming obstacles he/she face. I consider in my life a veteran who served in the army, because they fought for the freedom of our country. George Washington because he led a army against all odds and had courage and was not afraid to die for our country. I picked George Washington because he was our first president.
