Essay on What It Takes to Be a Hero
The first character that comes to my mind when I think of a hero is a character you eight know from The Legend of Zelda. Link, the little fairy boy dressed in funny green clothes. I think he makes a good hero because he is courageous in his fight against the evil Sanford, as well as his quest to save the princess, Zelda. Unfortunately, I don’t know much more about Link, because he has nearly no dialogue in any of his games. Another character I think of as a hero is a character from a trilogy I read over the summer. Catkins Evergreen from the Hunger Games.
Although she is kind of hot- added, vengeful and deceitful, I think of her are a hero because she has something of a goal to make the world a better place, despite her fear and anger. She battles her way through the game’ not only once, but twice, and maintains a courage fueled by her love for her sister and desire for peace. One of my latest heroes is quite different from the other two. Enter Alex Jensen, a somewhat shady, mysterious and fearless security guard for a bio-modification lab. After being shot in the head during a raid on the lab by some sort of super beings,
Alex Jensen embarks on a long winding Journey to piece together what has happened and defeat various corporate machines seeking monopoly over technology and life. This last hero I will write about is far different than those Eve already written about. He isn’t in any books, movies or video games. He’s real, and he’s my brother. Right now, he’s stationed in North Carolina with his fellow Marines after serving a tour in Iraq. Every day while he was in Iraq, I’m sure he was afraid, being so far away with so much violence and death lingering about.
But he had the courage to fight through it and fight against terrorism, something I believe is a noble fight. I could go on and on about so many different heroes, but I feel I have an accurate description of what a hero is to me. After comparing these four heroes, Eve found that they all have at least three things in common. In conclusion, to be a hero, one must have a goal, struggle greatly to achieve it and have to courage to overcome the great challenges and not give up. Essay on What It Takes to Be a Hero By Brandon
