Hero

Qualities That Made Them Heroes

"Our

planet is filled with heroes, young and old, rich and poor, man, woman of different colors, shapes and sizes. We are one great tapestry. "Each person has a hidden hero within, you just have to look inside you and search it in your heart, and be the hero to the next one in need.

...the

hero in you is waiting to be unleashed. Serve, serve well, serve others above yourself and be happy to serve. ...you are the change that you dream, as I am the change that I dream, and collectively we are the change that this world needs to be.

the Greek cognate , in mythology and folklore, a hero (male) or heroine (female) is an eminent character who quintessentially embodies key traits valued by its originating culture. The hero commonly possesses superhuman capabilities or idealized character traits which enable him or her to perform extraordinary, beneficial deeds (i.e., a "heroic deed") for which he or she is famous.

The classic hero often came with what Lord Raglan termed a "potted biography" made up of some two dozen common traditions that ignored the line between historical fact and mythology. Most European indigenous religions feature heroes in some form. Germanic, Hellene and Roman heroes, along with their attributes and forms of worship have been largely absorbed by the Orthodox and Catholic denominations of Christianity, forming the basis of modern day Saint revering.
