Since the shooting in Aurora, I started thinking about all the bad things that people do. Then I began looking up the complete opposite, because in a world like ours with so much violence, it’s nice to hear that there are good people out there. When Christian Bale visited those patients that survived the shooting, it really showed me that almost anyone could be a hero. It doesn’t matter if you save someone’s life or even just influence their life to the point where it changes them. I researched everyday hero’s and I was surprised to see that there is hundreds, if not thousands of real hero’s out there. I read that one of the people who died in the Batman shooting literally put his body on top of his girlfriend’s so that she would be safe. He pushed her down and sat there and told her to “shh… it will be ok” and the next thing she knows, he’s dead. I can’t imagine what I would do in that exact situation, and honestly I don’t think anyone would really know until they are in that position. It’s sad that in this day and age, that we can’t even go to a mall or a theatre without having to worry for our safety. Reading all these accounts of every day hero’s reminds me that there are good people and that is exactly why I’m writing this. If you could name someone that is a hero in your eyes, who would it be? A teacher? A parent? I see hero’s every day, my mother overcomes a lot of things every day, and teachers/professors are there five days a week and helping you learn so that you can become a better smarter person. So no matter your place in the world, just know that to someone else, you might be a hero.
