SORT BY Relevancy
The Heroes and Heroines in the media today take all shapes and forms. Aside from Police, Firemen and Military who sign up to be in harm’s way, some are ordinary people who rise to meet extraordinary situations.
Always more visible are the fictional characters portrayed by Hollywood celebrities; from The Incredibles to James Bond, from comic book superheroes to cinematic heroics, we are awed and entertained. But what of celebrity mis-named heroes such as athletes – are their efforts heroic- or just inspiring…as well as entertaining?
Ancient Greek and Roman History was so inspired by heroics that gods were created who not only had great power but were also greatly flawed. In today’s world we bandy about the term hero without seemingly understanding the meaning of the word. Football players, basketball stars, actors, musicians…all are referred to and refer to each other as heroes.
