My brother Joe Minden
Why do you look up to him?
He has overcome so many things in life that makes him the person he is today, with having cancer and his dad passing from cancer also, to breaking his knee cap and tearing a tendon, to breaking his face and arm and having to have countless surgeries.
He is my hero because he never gave up during those events and he still pushed him self to the fullest and followed his dream to play football, even when doctors said he could never play ball ever again.
Do you go to him for advice?
Dose he lead you in the right direction and Is he always there for you?
Yes, he knows how to cheer me up and knows how to make me smile. He always knows what to say in every situation.
“And then a hero comes along, with the strength to carry on, and you cast your fears aside and you know you can survive, so when you feel like hope is gone, look inside you and be strong, and you'll finally see the truth, that a hero lies in you.” – Mariah Carey
My thoughts on the intention of the lyrics:
Why did the song writer describe the "hero" in the way the they did?
I think she described it that way in order to have a surprise affect, sometimes when we hit rock bottom or feel such despair, something snaps inside and we suddenly get a 2nd wind and feeling of strength to keep going and get through something. And the hero strength is something we all have within us all the time.
What is the message of the song?
I think the message is to remind ourselves to be courageous, trust and stay positive even in the toughest situations.
What is the connection to Beowulf?
Make the connection to your hero from the song
THEME 1- Epic
This is an epic in beowulf because of the adventures he's gone on/ battles and the wording/ language on the time period.
Lord of the rings- because of the time period and the battles and the language
THEME 2- Deadly Battle
The movie connection I picked was in the movie twilight, the volturis is trying to find the cullins and kill bells baby and they end up in this big field and all the werewolf come and they end up killing basically everybody/ hurting them just to get to Bella and Edwards baby
THEME 3- Bravery
A movie that a character has shown bravery is the movie/ fairytale Rapunzel. Rapunzel had absolutely no idea what the world outside her tower had in store for her. She even had a “mom” who tried to scare her into never finding out. But despite the odds stacked against her, she was brave enough to take that first step to achieve her dream of watching the lanterns, and finally let her life begin.
