First, I'll talk about the term hero in general, then I'll talk about modern heroes and finally I'll talk about inequality in American universities.

First, there are two category of hero : ficticious and real. I'm going to talk about real person who became hero. A hero is frequently a symbol who embodies something or someone. A hero stay in our memories thanks to his ideas, his values, his bravery, etc... A hero can be arouse admiration because of his pesonality, the values his upholds like justice, liberty, etc...
