Modern day heros

Caitlyn Horton, News Writer

Heroes are everywhere, whether it’s a character in a movie or someone helping a person cross the street. Heroes are courageous and intelligent. They are always trying to solve problems even if it is not their own. heroes are idealized and admired by the people around them, the people see them as someone who will always be there. 

Senior Jonathan Menendez says Oliver Francis is his hero.

 “He talks about chasing your dreams even if they seem impossible,” Menendez said. 

Menendez also says that Francis is inspirational, and he admires that he produces his own music. Menendez associates being a hero with someone who inspires others to do great things. 

“Someone who motivates you to become a better person is a hero in my eyes,” Menendez said. 

Menendez believes that in today’s world, firefighters are the real superheroes. 

“Obviously heroes are someone who saves the world, but in my opinion, we don’t have superheroes, except firefighters,” Menendez said.

 There is no guarantee of what will happen in the future but a lot of things can change. 

“I think someone will probably look up to me in the future,” Menendez said. 

Another senior Roman Gonzalez says that people who define society are heroes. 

“People who differentiate from society and are themselves without worrying about people judging them are inspirational,” Gonzalez said.

 There are many qualities to becoming a hero in someone else’s eyes.

 “People who are unafraid and take up challenges qualify as a hero to me,” Gonzalez said. 

There are heroes all around the world, and people are looking for inspiration.

 “I would like to be an example to a younger generation to connect and let them know I understand how they feel,” Gonzalez said. 

Inspiration can be found in many places, from the past or looking towards the future.

 “Martin Luther King Jr. or any people of movement inspire me because they’re brave and take up challenges and they’re unafraid,” Gonzalez said. 

Heroes can be found everywhere, inspiring people of all ages. You don’t need any qualifications to become a hero, you can always help someone in need.
