Superman, Batman, Ironman, Hulk, Thor, etc. All ‘heroes’ in the world, but not just superheroes are ‘heroes’. Everyone has the potential to become a hero, and heroism traits are a part of everyone. A hero isn’t always the strongest human being that risks their life, a hero is someone who makes a positive impact in someone else’s life and overcomes challenges. Bob Riley said, “Hard times don’t create heroes. It is during the hard times when the ‘hero’ within us is revealed.” This quote proves how a hero faces these hard times and defeats these obstacles that face them. There are many examples of heroes in the modern world. These people that become unique heroes are regular people like you and me. The only difference is, these unique heroes take an extra step and make a footprint in the world. There were, and are many situations and natural disasters in the word that help bring out these heroes. For example, there were dozens of heroes during the 9/11 attacks. People from all different backgrounds became a hero saving other lives and making a difference in random stranger’s life. One hero during this hard time in America was known as the man in the red bandana. He obtained this nickname because he wore a red bandana to cover his mouth and lungs while helping others. He worked on the 104th floor and saved dozens rescuing them and accompanying them down to safety. On September 11, the man in red in bandana had positive impacts on others by saving the lives of many strangers.
