Who's your favorite hero?
name one person you know personally or don't but have always admired and wanted to emulate.
Owen Meany. Although he's fictional, I have always admired his rescue of the schoolchildren and wanted to emulate him in every way. Everyone should read "A Prayer for Owen Meany."
Naruto Uzumaki, he is a fictional character an anime I have been watching it for 8-9 years and I have always admired him
I'm against organized religion in general, but I would have to say Jesus Christ. Not only was he a staunch opposer of hypocrisy but he also carried himself with authority. Ultimately he died not only for what he believed in but for the people he loved.
Without a doubt, Spawn. Does he count as a hero though?
My Dad. Forward observer in Asian Theater, WWII, walking point through a jungle at age 18, seeing his friends die in the most horrible ways possible. Came home and became the gentlest, strongest man possible.
I admire Bill Gates and he is a Hero to our Generation,however being Indian I like the one and only SWAMY Baba Ramdev for his efforts to bring in a change in India from the clutches of impotent old pot belly politicians who want all their children to be a member of some position in the govt to have protection from power that they fear.
"If I could be a Superhero, I would be Awesome Man. I'd fly around the world fighting crime. According to my Awesome Plan."...just joking, though this song is good and funny! If I had to name one, it would be Edward Elric from anime series Fullmetal Alchemist. Although being a fictional character, the story he takes part in is very deep and noble. I've been carrying a pocket watch for years because of him!
I will have to say two....I am sorry. But the first is my mother for many reason; and, Mickey Mouse because he represents presistance and the never give up attitude his creator possessed.
Mahatma Gandhi -the father of India, and who showed the world a different way to fight against injustice.
I believe in the fight against injustice for Jesus is against all injustice, prasadjain. I admire Mahatma Gandhi too for his selfless dedication of his life for freedom and against injustice. I pray too that he is saved if his faith is in Jesus.
I'm a big fan of Ghandi, but remember; if the British had been Nazi's, Ghandi's movement would have failed. Pacifism only works if your opponent dislikes killing more than he needs you killed.
God! I've always wondered why he is so patient, despite he once destroyed the earth with flood. He's my role model in everything!
Mother Theresa for her unconditional love. Nelson Mandela for his unshakeable resolve. Lady Diana for her dedication to the causes she supported. There have been aspects of different people family and work acquaintances. My dad for his love of his people and rise from rags to riches, my mum for her tenacity in the face of discrimination, my brother for his love, drive and big heartedness, my step mum for her ability to love unconditionally. The list goes on.......
Amen to this ThussaysNanaMarie, if they all have received inspiration from Jesus, and the truth in his words.
you're blessed to have such wonderful family and be surrounded by great people.
My friend Fred is one. Their are others. Fred is kinda' spectacular in different ways. There is a picture of him to the left. He will defend other birds from cats, much, much bigger than he. He always arrives when the sun rises to say "hi!" just like clockwork. Like other hero's he flies. But, he can go up or down, from side to side, stay in one spot, and even go diagonal.
When I sit at the desk too long typing a story, he knows just when to come up to the window and tell me to get the blank out for awhile. When a territorial male tries to take over a feeder, keeping the females from a their meal, he will buzzzz right in and put a stop to it. I've seen him take on a group of wasps a couple of times that tried to take over the orioles feeder. He kinda' whooped their tail ends.
I've heard tales that he posses spiritual powers too. Once when weeding the garden there was this one big weed. Just when I was about to pull he dive bombed me. I couldn't figure out why. Then when I looked a second time I realized it was a sunflower, which had grown apparently from bird seed tossed on the ground.
Yeah, for now I will have to say Fred is my favorite hero. There is another, but I may write a hub on that person.
Thanks Super Lux for asking this question . . .
My father is my favorite hero. He was always there for my sister and I and we always knew we came first for him, along with my mom. He was a gentle man but had great strength of character and moral strength. He was a great teacher to us both and was always interested in whatever we were doing or were interested in. He wasn''t a drinker, womanizer, gambler, quit smoking for my sister and I, and always taught by example. I couldn't have asked for a better father. I have always admired him and looked up to him and he was always my rock when I was growing up. I was very fortunate to have a hero for a father!
I found this touching. Having had a father who was totally different from yours, I'm amazed that he gave up smoking for you. You were fortunate, as you said. Good for you to remember him this way.
Jesus is the man, Super Lux, for he is 'the truth, the way and the life.' Believing in him and following him is greater than loving myself, for in doing this, I may help lead them to the truth in his words and to eternal bliss, which is far far longer and greater than this short and worldly life, where the real battle is against all evil.
And living with Christ and in Christ, may we all win the best reward of all, the elusive key to heaven.
I'm going to have to say Jesus is my hero. He fights the bad guys and saves me from the evil ones.
Ahh..finally someone else who thinks like me! Thanks for this big smile on my face right now!
Unlike many superheroes, Bruce Wayne is just a man who suffers from all manly burdens : treachery, love, sorrow, responsibilities, physical limitations.
i used to like superman but when i saw this episode in justice league when everybody else fell asleep and batman was the only one left to save them, i've realized that super powers aren't everything. intelligence is still undisputed.
My father.Although I may try I will never be able to emulate or duplicate the dynamic person my father was in life.He was unique in his level of clear fairness and temperateness.I am 40 years old and to this day if I chose I could ride the coattails of his memory within the community in which I grew up.Now that I am a grown man it is harder for me to understand how a man can balance himself as well as my father and how anyone can be so selfless and giving.Even on his death bed his only concerns were for my mother and myself and those who had come to rely on him.He is sorely missed by many.
Well Jesus first and foremost because of all He did for me and my mom second because she modeled for me the mom I wanted to be and then of course my husband because he is just awesome
This is actually a pretty tough question. There is Jesus Christ, St. Augustine, an old theology teacher of mine named Dr. Marshall, and Glenn Beck in a way. Each one has something different I admire. However, right now I would say I most closely identify with St. Augustine.
My mother was my hero until she passed away from Cancer on August 21,2010. She is the one I emulate; but she is and was very hard to mirror. She is what every woman should strive to become and no matter what she had gone through she always rose to the top with a smile on her face.
She was Compassionate, loving, caring, understanding and everyone's best friend.
Sorry to hear that your beloved mother had passed away. You are blessed with a beautiful mother who possessed many excellent qualities. Thank you for sharing with us about your mother and her unique traits.
in real life, Jesus Our Lord and Savior, and my father. Both have devoted their lives for others
Favorite fictional character is Batman. He is the definition of a hero. Using his fears to strike against his enemies.
Helena Petrovna Blavatsky, one of the founders of the Theosophical Society.
My father as he is a Warrior of the truth, he taught me to embrace integrity and to practice it at all times not just when it is convenient to do so.
Jesus Christ, because He is everything I want to become; my greatest role model!
God is within me and my family. God has helped us through all obstacles of life and give us courage to overcome difficulties.
Aside from the obvious impact that God may have upon a persons life, there is one person whom I admire most. It may sound trite, but, I've know it as I know the back of my hand. I've been married to her for 43 years. She has caused me the greatest self reflection and the profoundest reason to make changes. I know "about" many people, but, I know her and if she were the only one left on earth, what I know of her would suffice to see me through. If I were her equal, it would be improvement enough to face God in the end and say, " I'm far from what you want, but just look how damn far I came."
Anne Sullivan, teacher/companion of Hellen Keller. It's not that I've ever particularly wanted to emulate her, because I'm not a big "emulator" as far as being who/what I am goes. I have, though, admired her since I was a child because she had faith in Helen and found a way to prove that such faith in someone (even someone who seems like such a "hopeless case") can be more than well founded. She figured out how to get through to a girl who couldn't see or hear AND to teach her how to read and write and talk. I find that mind-boggling, and if there's one thing I admire in anyone, it's being someone who will "figure out" - not someone who "just accepts".
Maybe I admire Anne Sullivan more today than I did as a child, because these days it so often seems that so many people (whether that be people in government, people in education, parents, doctors, or "whoever else") seem so ready to give up on others too quickly. Also, it can seem as if so few people (and people in positions where it matters) see the potential in individuals of all kinds, and instead just assume they're of less intelligence, strength, capability or character than they are.
Today we live in a time when too many people seem to think they're the only ones who are capable, intelligent and/or of good character; and who tend to think that "everyone else" is less capable, not intelligent, and of character that is more flawed than their own. Self-fulfilling prophecies can happen, and I think too many people today can live in an isolation that could be said to be similar to what Helen Keller lived with (even though most of those people can see and hear and speak). If more people saw in others what Anne Sullivan saw in her young student, there would be a lot less isolation and waste of potential in a lot more people today.
very well said Lisa HW. we indeed need people like Anne Sullivan. if there were more of her, it would have been a happier and better place.
Super Lux, thanks. (I just noticed that I typed two "l's" in Helen. I don't know how to make a correction at this point, if it can be done at all; so I hope this comment acts as correction.)
My son ask me about it too. I replied - Hulk or Green Lantern. Even though it can't be true I hope if I can be that hero I can scare off the bad guys so they won't attempt to do bad things.
Bruce Lee would have to be at the top of my list. He was way ahead of his time and had accomplished so much in such a little time.
