When the word heroism is heard, most would picture a strong person who would do anything for the sake of justice or a brave person who is looked up to. Everyone had a favorite hero someone they look up to because of their achievements.Would you believe me if I told you that heros have a mask, no I'm not talking about their physical masks but with a facade of perfection. In reality people who are heroic are self righteous , will do anything to get attention for their good deeds, People who believe they know better, people who when you really get to know them are arrogant and all they want is bragging rights.

Well they do, when a criminal does something that they don’t consider just heros take it into their own hands to deal with the problem.

Everyone enjoys recognition, but we also need to learn every
