Beowulf Hero Project
By: Marcelo Gaitan
“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
In this hero quote Mariah uses her lyrics to show her views of heroes, as everyone has the potential inside them to be one, everyone can be one and everyone is to another person. She expresses how its not a complex characteristic that only the special among us have, it truly is something that lies inside all of us. this connects to beowulf, specifically to wiggle, as he was the soldier who stood up for beowulf when nobody else would and he risked his life for him, while no one expected him to. This as well connects to my hero, my dad, as he would be the last person you would think would make something of themselves, he had nothing and made something of himself, he used his inner hero to get to where he is.
