Celebrities vs Heroism

These two things (separately) have been a topic of great interest for me for quite a while. The media (I have a growing interest in journalism) and heroes (I have a fascination and admiration of heroes- of all kinds, be it Spiderman or the firefighter or an ordinary person carrying out an extraordinary act for the sake of humanity).

Recently, I had to do an essay about “Celebrities are not heroes”, and it got me thinking…

What is a hero?

But the more you think about it, the more the definition of the word “hero” changes. It finally came down to “an ordinary person carrying out an extraordinary, courageous act for the sake of humanity, with the single, selfless motive of doing the right thing to help someone else”.

So… then I thought, I need a second opinion on this. LOTS of second opinions…

What’s your definition of a hero? Who is your hero? Do you think celebs are heroes?

Post below and let us know! Anything that has anything to do with heroism, celebrities, media… anything at all.
