"A hero is an ordinary individual who finds the strength to persevere and endure in spite of overwhelming obsatcles."

Who is your hero?Is it Superman in his cape saving those in danger? Is it the sports person who has excelled in their field? Is it the doctor who finds a cure for a disease? Is it the latest pop star? Is it the brave soldier who goes into battle for his country? Is it the person next door who saves a neighbour from their flooded house? Is it a family member?

It is very hard to define because everyone has their own idea of what a hero is. A hero may be an ordinary person that has done extraordinary things. They may be the people who make us proud? They may be those who are strong and brave in the face of danger. They may be famous. They may have done something to make the world we live in a better place. They may not think of themselves as a hero but just doing their job.

While some heroes may remain nameless, others are recognised in different ways. They may receive an award, have a road, park or building named after them, or had a memorial built in their honour. It is important that we recognise even the smallest contributions as they can make a huge difference to the lives of others.
