I have an essay to do, the topic is What is a hero? help please =)?
This could be different for different people.
For some, its fictional characters like Zorro or Batman etc. But for others its famous personalities like Madonna, Mother Theresa, Frank Sinatra, Princess Diana. some are very generic like a police man or fireman.
Better yet are those whose heroes are much closer to them, a friend who saved their live, their mother who recovered from cancer , the father who had nothing yet shared everything etc.
I guess the more important question you could be asking yourself before you write the essay is, “Who is your hero and what made him/her that?”
Hope this helps.
