Intro: I’m going to talk about the notion “myths and heroes”. To begin with I’d like to give a definition of myths and heroes: A myth is a fictitious story (invented, not true) for explaining the origins of humanity. A hero is a person admired for their noble qualities, who set an example to every generation by their feats and their bravery. The question of the hero has grown aware of the centuries. Which leads me to wonder if it is essential to have super power? To answer, I will focus on the example of Nelson Mandela and about the self-made women Oprah Winfrey

I: First of all, we saw a testimony from a young girl who met Nelson Mandela, the president of AMC and South Africa. Indeed, Madiba as most locals call him inaugurated on 9th of May in 1996 her new renovated school. Unfortunately, there was anti-AMC people standing at the gate, Madiba gets out of his car and went to talk to them, they were amazed by this incredible man. While the president was escorted to his ca, the girl got a call from her mother, asking her to invite the president taking the tea by them. Being a good girl she said with humorous, she makes aware the president about the invitation. He replied that his secretary will call the young girl to take an appointment. It was on the 18th of May in 1996, this day is unforgettable for the girl: the roads were full of people; some of them were hanging of walls to catch a glimes. Madiba arrived and there was an amazing atmosphere, it was truly exciting. The president met the girl parents, aunts, uncles, cousins, brothers and her grandmother. Nelson Mandela has distinguee himself by his actions, by his exceptional merits, courage, will and determination it was part of his principles to make the world better. Nelson Mandela is a hero because from an early age, he fought against inequality.

II: Secondly, we saw a document about Oprah Winfrey. She is a major and « indisputable » influence all over the world. Thanks to her omnipresence in the média she is able to broadcast her principals and makes Americans aware of necessity to help the most disadvantaged sections of the population by giving then better education. She uses her omnipresence in the média in order to make people aware of the importance of « becoming more education benevolent and caring » Her action are aimed changing people’s lives by giving useful advise.

Although O.W. came from poor African-Ameriacan family and had to face many hardships, many obstacles, she succeeded in climbing the social leader. She must have wanted break free from her background however she mended a lot of determination, will power.

CCL: To sum up, 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. We can say that recent hero have almost no longer the properties that the former in such beauty or forces.
