|Reviews for What is a Hero?|

I agree with the other reviews about modern heros, but I think the author is trying to portray the historical hero, the hero we read about in our senior year literature. I sincerely believe she meant Beowulf, Achilles, Hector and Perseus, etc. I think the author was trying to relate these fictional characters to the modern day heros that do fight cancer and AIDS and wars for our countries. She finds these heros that can destroy armies virtually by themselves a little haughty. Maybe the author prefers the idea of a hero that can stand his ground with thousands of soldiers standing next to him; or a person who can maintain mental stability while watching their loved ones fight of the worlds most terrible of diseases. Do you think she may have meant to question the heros of the past and further glorify the heros of modern society?

While a heartfelt poem, I tend to disagree with you. I may be a soldier, but a Hero I am not. Most of us do not claim to be, and those of us who do have never looked the fire in the eye. But I have served with Heros, my buddies who did not come back are Heros, they died in a most God Forsaken corner of the Earth protecting people who dont like them abroad or at home. They died doing a job most people are frightend to do. That makes them HEROS.

Well their are all sorts of heros. A good friend of mine just died in war two days ago. He is a hero, he saved his men. But their is my grandmother who is also a hero and a cancer victim. She died and is also a hero to me. I love your poem for it was very heartful, but a soldier can also be a hero. :)
