I am going to talk about the notion of myths and heroes.

First of all, I’m going to give a definition about this notion.

A myth is a story that may or may not be true. There may not be records or other proof that they happened, but at least some parts of myths may be true. Some myths may have started as ‘true’ stories but as people re-told them some parts may have been changed by mistake, or to make them more interesting. All cultures have myths and this mythology has been developed over time. Mythology includes the legends of our history, our religions,  stories of how the world was created, and our heroes. A myth often contains a hero

A hero is a person who is admired for their courage, outstanding achievements, or noble qualities. It can be the main character in a book or a film or a person with superhuman qualities. It can also be a modern-day hero, a person who has performed a heroic act or simply our own personal hero, our role model, who we look up to.

I’m going to talk about Martin Luther King born January 15, 1929 and murdered April 4, 1968, is an African-American Baptist pastor, a non-violent activist for the civil rights of blacks in the United States, for peace and against poverty. On August 28, 1963, he delivered a famous speech to the Lincoln Memorial in Washington during the March for Employment and Freedom: "I have a dream”. martin Luther King becomes the youngest Nobel Peace Prize winner in 1964 for his non-violent struggle against racial segregation and for peace.

What impact do they have on our lives? Why are myths and heroes so important to our society?

To conclude, I think the concept of myths and heroes has an important place in the society.

the history was marked by people who were defended the populations. They are today considered as a hero by all people. But everyone can be the hero of someone. A hero can be an ordinary person like me or you. My heroes are the different persons, anonymous persons who fight against the inequalities in the world

We can also link  in the concept of the idea of progress because the concept can be defined as a technical, scientific or social evolution or change contributing to making the world a better place. And heroes can be the cause of progress.
