FC: Hero Book
1: What is a hero? A hero is someone who is courageous, someone who is positive, who is daring and proud. There are a couple groups of people that come to mind when I think of heroes. The first group would be police officers. They show how courageous they are by running towards a situation while everyone else is running away from it. Them running into a situation not knowing what will happen shows how daring they are. They are proud at what they do, because they get to help people in their everyday job. The next group of people that come to my mind when I think of a hero are the soldiers that serve and protect us from harm's way. They show how courageous they are by sacrificing themselves to keep us free. | What is a hero?
