Merci pour vos réponses.
The myth is about the human condition as a whole, its history transmitted verbally is enshrined by a hero, a place or a community. When we wonder about myths, we’re looking at the heroes and the stories which create a collective identity.The universal character of myth allows to highlight the specific manner which each cultural area interprets the human experience and builds works for expressing. Every age borrows and updates some myths or makes new ones.
The hero can be a fictional or a real character which marked tradition, story, daily life. Popular culture and counterculture cease to have their own heroes.
Should be famous to be a hero?
Historically, man needed heroes: once can be found in literary works, today with the evolution of society appears on media. Younger look require model, person relate to. Hence, they turn to celebrities like singers and sportsmen. Young people write stories named fan fiction. They’re telling stories about a celebrity which they regard as hero. They give their idoles the heroic status.
The famous person, that uses its/her reputation to help someone, can be seen like a hero. Get up to the service of other without seeking to profit off its actions is something heroic. Miley Cyrus is an example. She created a charity which helps homeless youth. She uses her talents as a singer to attract as much donors as possible. Angelina Jolie defends numerous humanitarian causes around the world. She is committed to protecting nature and animals. In 2001, she was named Goodwill ambassador for UNHCR, a ambassador which puts her notoriety, her time and her talent to assist refugees.
The committed singer is also a hero. He stands for a just cause. He claims his ideas and encourages to adopt them. He put his art in the service of a cause. John Lennon has for example written the song « Imagine » which is for a peace world, without guns, religions, borders, discriminations. Joe MacDonald sang « A song on Vietnam », song against the Vietnam war. Both are singers with strong influence. They used the music for communicate their ideas.
But can we really say that celebrities are heroes? A hero, is a person who stands out by his bravery, his exceptional merits,… A star doesn't put himself in danger in his actions, there is no a brave act. So, being famous is not sufficient to be a hero. Then, the action of/from the famous person must be sincere. Otherwise it will not be a heroic act.
When we think about (it), there are some people we can consider like heroes. It’s easy to think to the warlords like De Gaulle, Churchill, but all the soldiers who fought for France are heroes. My grandfather participated in the second world war. For me, he is a hero, like the other soldiers. Today, we are opposed to heroes. Firefighters who save lives every day, can be considered like heroes. For example, the thirteenth day November, in the Bataclan attack, the heroes were the firefighters and policemen who saved a lot of people.
In conclusion, a hero can be famous or not. Every man has a definition of its own of the term hero. We don’t all have the same heroes because they depend on our story, our experience.
For me, a hero is a generous man who uses his person to do good. It’s a man who saves lives. He can do it through his music for a singer, an association or fighting for save life.
