These days there are many heroes that help us and tell us the right path in our lives. But sometimes we forget about them before we thank them for what they have done. We can meet and find heroes everywhere. Some heroes do not appear as heroes but as ordinary people. That is why everyone can be a hero.
Some of the heroes today are people that help you if you drop your books in school. They are heroes because they take the time to help us when they could be doing something else. Another example of a hero would be a soldier who fights for his country to defend it and save it from destruction. He/She dedicates their lives to fight for their country and the people that make it up.
But theses heroes are forgotten very quickly. The person that handed you your books in school will be forgotten and you will never remember him or her in the future. The soldier that came from war will also be rewarded with a medal and respected but will soon be forgotten and the world will move on.
Today firefighters are considered to be heroes because they save people from deadly fires and from sudden death. After the 9/11 attacks firefighters have helped to recover many people from the rubble. They were rewarded for their honor and respected for the time being. But now almost everyone has forgotten about them. They are now part of the past and not many people feel about them the same way they use to.
Heroes help us in our everyday lives. Our parents are also our heroes. They help us with our homework, make food for us and do many other things that will have a positive effect on our future lives.
