” A hero is one who knows how to hang on one minute longer

” A hero is one who knows how to hang on one minute longer.”-Novalis. By
definition, a person noted for courageous acts or nobility of character. What a hero is to me is someone who is brave and is determined to do what is right.
The ultimate hero is someone who shows bravery in the scariest of times. An example of bravery is in the story “A Soldier losing his leg in Afghanistan” where the main character goes through challenges recovering from his injury and still going back to the army after he had lost his leg. The 2nd time he had lost his other leg his was still brave enough to recover from his injury without quitting.
Being a hero takes a great deal of determination when trying to do the admirable thing. The perfect example of someone being determined is Abraham Lincoln in Gurley’s “White House funeral sermon for Abraham Lincoln” when Abraham Lincoln was so determined for the liberty of slaves. With trying to balance his presidency and trying to beat the south for the slavery issue.
