American Literature Research Paper
An American Hero
finished introduction so I would like you to finish the rest.
A hero is an individual who can serve as an example. He or she has the ability to persevere, to overcome the hurdles that impede others’ lives. While this intangible quality of greatness appears almost magical, it is indeed most human. And it is precisely because of that humanness that some individuals attain heroic stature. They are of us, but are clearly different.
We look to heroes for inspiration. Through their achievements, we see humankind more positively. They make us feel good. They make us feel proud. Their successes and failures lead us to ponder our own actions and inactions. By learning about their lives, our lives become enriched.
