WHAT MAKES A HERO?
A Hero refers to someone who, in the face of danger and adversity or from a position of weakness, displays courage and the will for self sacrifice—that is, heroism—for some greater good of all humanity. This definition originally referred to martial courage or excellence but has been extended to more general moral excellence. Stories of heroism may serve as moral examples.
What Makes a Hero? The four key elements of heroism:
· It's voluntary
· It is done in the service of people or communities in need
· It involves some type of risk, either physical, social, or in terms of quality of life
· It is done without the need for recompense or material gain.
