Myths and heroes

I'm going to talk about myths and heroes. A hero is a fictional or real person. He's an ordinary person who does something extraordinary. Heroes lead, inspire, and entertain the masses. This is why heroes, with all their mistakes and shortcomings, are vital to humanity. Heroic stereotypes can be considered to be unrealistic, but heroes show how vital they are to society

 First, I will talk about Gandhi and Martin Luther King who I think are heroes. In a second step, I will talk about the heroes of everyday life and those who have revolutionized the world

How can an ordinary person make the world a better place ?

I. Martin Luther King and Gandhi

An ordinary person can perform actions that revolutionize the world. I choose to speak about Gandhi, who I consider as a hero. He was born in 1869 (eigheteen sixty nine) in Porbandar. Gandhi was a pioneer and theoretician of Satyagraha, from resistance to oppression to civil disobedience all based on non violence. This helped lead India to Independence. Gandhi inspired many liberation movements and civils laws around the world. He has also insipired many personalities such as Martin Luther King. Gandhi has been recognized as The Father of the Nation and the day of his birthday is a national holiday, so this shows that Gandhi is a historical hero in India. For all these reasons, Gandhi is a historical hero that everyone still remembers today.

Martin Luther King also made history. He was born in Atlanta in 1929 (nineteen twenty nine). In 1955 (nineteen fifty five) he took the lead in the support movement to Rosa Parks arrested by the police for refusing to give way to a white on a bus.In 1964 (nineteen sixty four) Martin Luther King receives the Nobel Peace Prize. Martin Luther King played a major role in the emancipation of African-Americans and the awareness of the injustice of segregation in the United States.

II. The heroes of everyday life

The heroes of our daily life have an important place in our lives. Indeed, being a hero is mainly being courageous and determined. In my opinion, policemen and firefighters are heroes. Every day, they save our lives, they sacrifice themselves or they improve our daily lives. They are there to keep us safe, and fight against fires and dangers. However, they put their lives in danger in order to save the life of fellow citizen. In march, we have a exemple of the policemen Arnaud Beltram who sacrified his life during a terrorist attack to save the life of a hostage.

Steves Jobs is also a hero who has improved our daily lives and technologies. Steve Jobs is the co-founder of Apple. Only a few business leaders have had more influence on the shape of our day-to-day lives. A mere ten years ago, there were no iPhones or iPads. There were no apps, and the Internet was something you could only access if you were sitting at a computer.  With only one tool, we can call, take photos, send e-mail and sms and the most important, we can be intouch with your friends all the time. He created the connecting generation.

Steve Jobs was a man who never gave up and always believed that he can achieve his dreams.  Steve Jobs was very humble about money, but always supported many charities. When he set out to start his company he didn't aim becoming a billionaire but to make great products.

In my opinion, Steve Jobs isn't a hero but he is one for million of peoples.

Conclusion :

To conclude, I think the concept of myths and heroes has an important place in the society. We must not forget that the definition hero is subjective, it depends on us and society. However, a fictional hero as real must be courageous, honest, just, that is to say have qualities.
