Myth and heroes
During the year, we studied the notion of Myth and heroes. A myth can be defined as a story about gods or heroes, it can be a popular belief or a tradition or a false notion. A hero can be a mythological figure, a person who is admired for his or her achievements, a superhero or maybe a model or an icon. The documents that we studied in class were mainly speaking about celebrity heroes who defended, helped, fought for many people creating the myth. So how can myths and heroes change our lives ? To answer this question, we’re going to see in a first part the myths and the heroes which, because of their action, became models, secondly, I'm going to bring to light how many consequences, difficulties you will have to face to be a hero
First, we have seen Oprah Wilfrey's actions. She is the mosts famous TV presenter in the USA, she's very popular in the media, she is a philantropist and child advocate. For her birthday, the public organised a flash mob during a concert of the Black Eyed Peas, a flashmob is a group of people who assemble suddenly in a public place, perform an unusual and seemingly pointless act for a brief time, then quickly disperse, often for the purposes of entertainment, satire, and artistic expression.". Oprah was suprised to see this because it is unusual. The Americans love Oprah because she's a model of sucess, she has an influence on culture and the american spirit. Secondly, there is Martin luther king, a pastor, he was a pacifist and defended the rights of the black community. He organized marches and protests and wanted to put an end to racism. He is considered as a hero by millions of people worldwide. Thirdly, we spoke about Eva Longoria. Eva started from scratch. She did whatever was needed to make her dreams come true. She did everything she could to fulfil her dreams. Today, she represents sucess and she is an icon. Finally, we spoke about Nelson Mandela, the first South African black President. He fought against the apartheid. He fought for liberty of the black population. Nelson passed away on last december. President Obama said during the ceremony that Mandela was a statesman, a peace man, a peacemaker, a leader, a democrat, a visionary, humble, big speaker. However to become heros, It's very difficult.
Finally, indeed, he need ambition to be a hero. In the 50s and 60s, Oprah has faced obstacles because there was racism against African American people in the south of the USA. She was poor and her life was primitive but her grandmother and her father helped for her education. Martin Luther King fought for the black community, he has been courageous pastor in racism periods but he was assassinated, in 1968 by asegregationist. Eva langoria worked at Wendy's to pay her lessons at college. College is extremely expensive America. She also borrowed some money and received a scolarship. Eva earned her bachelor. She owed her success partly thanks to the fierce work she developed at a young age. Then Mandela was jailed during 27 years for encouraging black South Africans to go on strike and for illegally leaving South Africa. He battled South African apartheid and planned to overthrow the government by non-violent protests.
To conclude we can say that myths and heroes have changed our lives. Many heroes fought for things that they cherished. They have a capacity to influence the minds of many people, to help them and to change the course of history. Heroes do courageous things like help black people to be equal to white people, they fight for something or they want to serve others. They represent a model, an ideal person. And nobody can deny their comportment, they changed the history, our history.
