The term hero has different meanings in different contexts. Heroes are people who sacrifice their lives to safeguard other people’s lives and interests.
A person who acts with courage and strength saving human lives and property or stops a bad incident from taking place is called a hero. The act is not for monetary gains but out of humanity and selflessness. Political leaders, past and present, like Abraham Lincoln, John Kennedy, Obama and others in the USA, or Nelson Mandela in Africa are idols of many. Heroes could also include sportsmen, singers, entrepreneurs etc, those who stand as examples of heroic feats.
In our day to day life we come across many incidents where we hear about brave acts done by men and women. These could include saving lives of human and property during calamities like fire, thefts and accidents.
