Heroes

Heroes are the basis of goodness on the Earth. Their lives are action-packed and

filled with magic. Each and every day, they devote themselves to living off-the-edge and

doing great deeds. In many Norse and Greek epics, the heros are always on the side of

good and always facing evil forces. Heroes in any story live their lives with bravery,

passion, and determination.

A hero brings upon themselves a strong sense of bravery. They put themselves on missions and quests for the sake of being a hero. Most of these quests are very dangerous and deadly. Some are done not for any real prize, but for the fact that it is the right thing to do. A hero will take on any opponent that stand in their way. They ...view middle of the document...

A hero’s determination helps define them in their lives. Each and every hero vows to finish their missions and quests. They wish for honor and glory so, without a doubt, they will go on any mission. These heroes want to feel accepted and trusted by the people so their missions are their only hope to gain that. Heroes want to fight for the good so they will protect the people that are in harm’s way. These heroes are able to tell who is innocent and

They are the ones who save many from harm and possible elimination of an entire village of people.All of these people are able to live better lives because there are heroes defending them with righteousness and justice.

In many stories of heroes, they all contain bravery, passion, and determination. Like many heroes, they all are the representation of goodness and righteousness. Their time out in the world, killing evil and helping innocent people, is what defines them as a true hero. The heroes of the past are the ancestors of the heroes we know today. All of the people that we hear about in these stories, they are the saviors of the common man.
