Ever since I was little I was taught to model after a hero. Whether it would be the hero of a movie or a book I was shown that being the hero was a good thing. A hero could do anything such as: saving a school from aliens, falling in love with an attractive person, and even beating an unbeatable enemy. From what I could pick up from the movies and books I read they also have outstanding personalities. They showed no sign of fear and always stood up for what they believed in. I realized that to achieve this ultimate image each hero had one thing in common; they each had courage. As I grew up I no longer looked for superman and batman in buildings but looked to the newspapers and internet for people who could come close to achieving the hero image. I concluded that it is easy to recognize courage in Hollywood and books but in reality courage is not as easily noticed or celebrated because it is something that is not always seen at first in a person. However, just because you cannot see it does not mean that it is not there. The word courage makes me want to become as close to a superhero as I can and overall just to become a better person. I believe that every person is capable of being fearless and having courage just like Batman and Superman. I have come to the conclusion that even though every day people including myself may not have supernatural abilities we do have courage that at times can seem like a new superpower.
