I think bravery and doing things no one else is willing to do in the face of adversity makes a hero.


What makes a hero is selflessness. Being willing to save somebody who needs saving even if its a pain in your butt.


Doing something to change the world for the better good. Could be big, could be small.

A hero is someone who always works for the better and works to their best ability.

Good question! A hero to me would be someone willing to do what is best for others and to be able to make any sacrifice for it.

I would love to be included in your giveaway. To me what makes a hero is love. I love my brother and he was my hero.

A hero think about everyone else, not about him self. His selfless. He is also brave and very generous. 🙂

[+1] Well, I haven’t thought all that much on what makes a hero. I guess, to me, a hero is somebody who does what needs to be done, even if they are afraid or unwilling.

Hero is whoever earns love with his deeds.

A Hero is a person who
When life puts them to the test
Rises above their ego & fear
And tries to do their best

(Do I get points for creativity?)

Being a hero means helping people who don’t necessarily deserve it.


Sorry for the double post but I realized my e-mail was wrong. Stupid ipod keyboard.


This is a quote from Bob Dylan that I think perfectly describes what a hero is.

“I think of a hero as someone who understands the degree of responsibility that comes with his freedom.”
