Myths and Heroes:

I am going to talk about the notion of Myths and Heroes. First of all I would like to give a definition of this notion: A hero can be either a real or an imaginary person, famous or anonymous who distingued by exceptional qualities and a myth can be defined as a story about gods or heroes, it can be a popular belief or a tradition or a false notion. We can wonder how myths and heroes change the course of history and how does it improve our future. We will see first of all the heroes of the Quotidian life but who manages to change the face of the world then we will see the mythical and idolatrous career of Steve Jobs

Since the beginning of mankind, some people or groups of people have distinguished themselves by their actions, their words or their qualities and are considered heroes in society and in people's minds. First, there is a hero recognized by society because of his abnegation like fireman. Fireman helps people all day when they are in danger. Sometimes they risked their life and perished to save them as the attentat of 11/09. On document seen in class, we saw the testimony of a firefighter who was at rest on the day of the attack and when he learned about the tragedy, he left to join his colleagues to help the victims, they did not think about it. Twice, saving people was a matter of duty for them. They spent their day rescuing people without seeing a kidney and without being able to put out the fire. You must know that many people died on duty that day. However, they save and change a lot of life.They are therefore admired for their achievements, their noble qualities, their strength and their courage. Their lifeguard roles give them the status of heroes.

Then there is a hero who wants to change history as a defender of common values. For example in Pakistan girls do not have the right to education and some people try to fight for their rights. We have studied the fight of Malala, who is 15 years old and is being attacked by the Taliban, because she loudly claims the rights of these girls because in their country the fact that girls go to school is considered a crime. . You must know that Malala was shot in 2012 she was already fighting for the right to education but after this attack she made her fight an international fight, she created a foundation with as spokeswoman Angelina Jolie who gave a talk with Malala in New York. It can be said that Malala is a heroine because she fights for her rights but also for the rights of others despite the danger that has already almost killed her.

Finally some people in the world are considered myths because their career and career are greatly admired as their personalities, this is the case of Steve Jobs, and before being famous you must know that he went through moments difficult. From basic Orphan he was adopted by a middle-class family, with no very promising future he leaves school quite young and without diploma. He had nothing to succeed. However, he managed to revolutionize the world of computing by developing mobile phones and computers without ever ceasing to innovate. After that he made a lot of money and became one of the biggest fortunes in the world. Steve Jobs is a source of admiration and success in the eyes of the world. And his inventions continue to inspire scientists and support millions of users

To conclude we have been able to see that our heroes are
