Hero or Not?
Here is a quote by Christopher Reeve. It is about what a hero is. Here it is:
|“A hero is an ordinary individual who finds the strength to persevere and endure in spite of overwhelming obstacles.” – Christopher Reeve|
Now I will answer some questions about it.
- What does this quote mean to you? To me it means that any ordinary person can be a hero if they persevere through obstacles.
- 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. They need perseverance for sure because if something is really hard they need perseverance to keep working at it. They also need the character trait of kindness because if you are just rude about everything nobody will like you and won’t consider you as a hero.
- Who in your own life do you consider a hero? Why? I consider my Mom and Dad heroes because they are always there for me and they both work to get the money to put food on the table and pay the bills.
- Name one person from history that has the qualities of a hero? Why would you pick that person? Abraham Lincoln is someone from the past that has the qualities of a hero. I would pick Lincoln because he ended slavery and help the side against slavery win the civil war.
