How to use hero in a sentence?

  1. Carl Sagan:

    Look again at that dot. That’s here. That’s home. That’s us. On it everyone you love, everyone you know, everyone you ever heard of, every human being who ever was, lived out their lives. The aggregate of our joy and suffering, thousands of confident religions, ideologies, and economic doctrines, every hunter and forager, every hero and coward, every creator and destroyer of civilization, every king and peasant, every young couple in love, every mother and father, hopeful child, inventor and explorer, every teacher of morals, every corrupt politician, every ‘superstar,’ every ‘supreme leader,’ every saint and sinner in the history of our species lived there — on a mote of dust suspended in a sunbeam.

  2. Prof.Salam Al Shereida:

    The hero is the owner of the deep reflections that generate those ideas.

  3. Frank Rich:

    You never criticize a war hero like John McCain, you never say Muslims should be banned from the country, you never use misogynistic language, he's changed the narrative, and our media don't adjust so easily to changes in narrative. He's just kept blindsiding everyone.

  4. Paul Dergarabedian:

    That's still a really good result, we needed a box office hero and we got one with this little fish.

    Heroes lift us all through their sacrifice, compelling us to be our best through their example, mike Katherman was that hero, performing his noble duty to serve and protect until his last moments. I ask our residents to join in sending our prayers and thoughts to Mike’s wife, his sons, his family and friends, and the entire SJPD family during this time of grief.
