More Than a Hero
My grandfather had the biggest nut packaging in the USA
My grandfather is now retired and still keeps himself active with certain activities
He would turn lots of companies from being bankrupt to making more profit than anytime in their prime
A hero is someone who defies cowardice, and with full awareness and willingness, risks
life and limb for their fellow man, woman, and child and the continuation of good
worldwide. Winston Churchill fits this description perfectly he fought back with his fellow
countrymen the nazi threat in England's air and waters, he stood firm against Stalin and his
red army. And with wit and strength saved Europe and the world from near destruction in
The Second World War. He reminded America who to respect and who to be cautious of
and most of all he was a beacon of hope in an ever changing world of oppression and war.
Winston Churchill is my hero for all those reason and because he with being under
constant threat remained not only cool-headed and humors, merciful and just, but
remained strong and helpful, to his fellow English and to his fellow man across the globe.
Winston Churchill is a hero because he fended off not only the nazis, but fear in his
country, and kept the moral of his citizens high with his strong leadership. He kept
capitalism and the economy booming during the Second World War with having people not
only able but willing to work jobs and move quickly and effectively to protect their nation.
Mark Davis stated through his article "Long before Ronald Reagan, Churchill adopted the
Roman emperor Hadrian's maxim '" "peace through strength"--as his policy"(1). As one can
see Winston Churchill was strong and knew how to keep the peace. He was a hero in his
own time and is still now with saving his country and continuing the help of all people
wether they be poor or rich because they all had to help rebuild their broken homes, their
broken families, their broken country.
A hero in my everyday life is my grandfather and in many ways he does remind me of
Winston Churchill. My granddad was an amazing businessman he loved capitalism and he
made a living off of starting from the bottom. Churchill may not have started from the
bottom but he still was a fighter of freedom and capitalism. As well, they both not only
worked all day to fix problems, but once they were finished with them they moved on to
the next solution. They are both so great not because they could fill everyone around them
with humor and happiness, but their presences could both tell you that they mean
business and will won't listen or take anything that impeaches upon anything of their good
nature. So because they are both strong of heart and nature in many ways they are both
If my untouchable hero was to give me advice, he would tell me to not fear anything.
He would tell me to persist in everything I do little or big, short or long, to persist. He would
tell me though most of all, to never sell your self short with wits, strength, knowledge, or
anything in your life, and that is why Winston Churchill is my hero.
What is a Hero
When you think about a hero, lists of jobs such as firemen, being in the army, or a
brain surgeon, probably come to mind. Some specific heroes do too, such as Welles
Crowther, Martin Luther King, or Malala. Merriam Webster dictionary defines a hero as: a
person who is admired for great or brave acts or fine qualities. This is very true, but heroes
are far more than just that. A hero is someone who defies cowardice, and with full
awareness and willingness, risks life and limb for their fellow man, woman, and child and
the continuation of good worldwide.
A hero is a fireman who rushes into a burning building to save a hurt young child.
Imagine a house about to come down at anytime. Smoke and flames reaching every room
and everybody. Consider no one going into the house for fear of their own lives, yet one
man does. That man is a firefighter who risks his own life for his fellow man, woman or
child. Running into a burning building is clearly heroic. Not only would no one else do so
but the fireman is putting the strangers life in front of there own. As well as that, they are
the entire time knowing that are going to help this person no matter the risk. As one can
see a fireman is clearly a hero because he is fearless in the face of fear, stone cold in the
face of danger, and standing strong in the face of death.
A hero is also an adult or child speaking out against what's wrong with risk of their own
lives. There was a young girl by the name of Malala who spoke out against the Taliban.
Malala was shot in the head and almost died. That, though did not discourage her from
doing what's right and speaking out against injustice against not only woman but all of
humans. So because she did what was right no matter the cost no matter the pain she is a
Anyone is able to tell that no matter who someone is they still can be a hero, like the
fireman or Malala. Anyone can be a hero if they just put others in front of themselves no
matter the cost. So many people are able to become a hero but only a select few do and
not just say. Think about a hero in your life, he or she may remind you of the fireman or
Malala or just any other hero that comes to mind. All in all everyone is called to be a hero
but if you truly wish to become one you must act on a situation not just talk about it.
