Myths and Heroes

I am going to talk about the myths and heroes more specifically the people who to me embody a myth or could be describe as a hero. First of all I would like to give a definition of a myth, for me a myth could be a legend with imaginary people who make things, and to me a hero is a person who truly exist or have truly existed, this person is selfless, loyal and brave. Myth and heroes take place everywhere.

Then regarding to this notion we may wonder why can someone or something can be considerate as a hero or a myth ?

In order to illustrate my speech I have chosen two documents, the first one is the one with the people who were heroes, it’s named “ The bigger they come …” and the second is the speech of Martin Luther King “ I have a dream” .

The first documents deals with five athlete who were on the top before they become bad people by their act or be catch up with their past. Marion Jones was the fastest women in the whole world but her hunger to be even faster made her take steroids who blackened her reputation. But now she writes about her experiences to spread her message “ Don’t make the same mistakes  I did “ . Jenifer Capriati was a very good tennis player but she also was depressive so one day she was caught with Marijuana, it was to heal her depression but this is illegal. Depression is a fight for life not just for a moment. O.J Simpson former NFL player fell from grace because he murdered her ex-wife and her husband. There is no excuse for him, I’m against free  violence.

The second document is the speech Martin Luther King made on the 28th August 1963 on the Lincoln Memorial in Washington DC. In his speech Martin Luther King says that he wants the nation to be together equally, he wants all the children to be able to hold theirs hands no matter their skin color, he wants the abolition of racism and the earth to be a peaceful place. He has a dream, he wanted peace everywhere on earth.

As a conclusion, I think that the way to become a hero or a myth is really hard but we can be bad faster than we think. Life is about choice and we have to choose to be the good one. The hero we see on the TV, in the newspapers, on the internet they inspire childrens and adults. We can change and be the good people in order to be make the earth a better place to live for the future generation. For a child a hero is’nt always a famous person but it can be his parents or someone he knows. People don’t even realize the power they have; if you are determined there is nothing that can stop you from your goal. There is sports heroes, political heroes, … but there also is bad people. Sometimes there is a rational explanation but sometimes no
