This year we are studying heroes. We have made a list of what a hero is, and the qualities of a hero. These are some of the qualities of a hero: selflessness, motivation, forgiveness, courageousness, thoughtfulness, compassion and so many more. Our class believes that a hero is someone who does good for others, who makes changes for a better society, who stands up for others, who isn’t afraid to try something new, who stands up for fair rights, who makes a difference, who fights for something they believe in, who is brave and who risks his/her life for others and who works for the greater good. We believe that heroes are very important people who do all these things For example, Rosa Parks, Jackie Robinson, Martin Luther King Jr., Jackie Mitchell, Harriett Tubman, firemen, and Navy Seals are all heroes. We also talked about the difference between a hero and a celebrity. A hero is somebody who does something to help others, and a celebrity is somebody that just makes music, or does a sport. They did not do something in order to change the world for the better.
Who are your heroes?
