To be a hero you should be kind, brave, and generous. You have to be kind because what if someone is less fortunate than you and need your help? Will you help them? A true hero would help that person, like a police officer would help a woman track down the person who stole her money. You have to be brave because what if a guy threatens someone that you know? Do you want to take the risk and stand up against the man? A hero would probably do that, like a student stands up against a school bully because the bully is taking stuff and threatening other people. You have to be generous because what if a woman wants you to take a dollar? Would you take the money? A hero would say 'Sorry, but I don't want the money. I work for free.'
Some heroes I know of are policemen, firefighters, doctors, war veterans, volunteer groups, and even ordinary people! Think of it: an ordinary man can save the life of an animal or a pet for someone else. The person he helped may think of him as a hero.
What do you think it takes to be a hero?
