Of course they do. Soldiers, Doctors, Firefighters, Polices etc are all Heros that save lives and protect us.

Yes, heroes do exist in real life. Anyone can be a hero, because a hero is someone who is willing to help others.

I don't believe there are heroes. They all claim to do it out of selflessness, but I believe they only do it to up their own image.

I disagree.
Fighting someone's war does not make you a hero.
In fact I pity those who risks their life because of the false vision of glory they are given by corrupt goverments. I am not only referring to the United States here...

I think the word "hero" is used a little too much and rarely in the right way. I don't think that being employed in certain fields (such as medicine or a military) automatically makes someone a hero. A highly trained soldier protecting their colleagues in a dangerous situation isn't as heroic as a passer-by that puts themselves in danger to help a stranger.

People are often labelled as a "hero" in order to try and protect groups from scrutiny, like a government that claims anyone opposed to military action is insulting the "heroes" that work in the army. Similarly, nurses are often called "heroes" and supported when they ask for better pay and conditions but hospital support staff don't get that advantage.

I guess heroism is mostly about intent. It's heroic to put yourself at risk for the benefit of others without expecting anything in return. Someone that tries something heroic but fails could be called stupid but they might still be a hero for trying.

I don't think we should really need heroes. If everyone was decent to each other then we wouldn't often need to go above and beyond. What we do have is a surplus of villains, that's something that hero stories tend to get depressingly right.

There are many heroes and heroines out there Teachers, Doctors, Nurses, a friend or neighbor, police, firemen, a random stranger. Someone that helps out, a kind gesture, makes a difference c:

Most teachers I know are apathetic and only push for good grades in their own interests. If a year passes by and they can pin the fact that their class failed on some change, they'll just waste the entire year on purpose and teach whenever they feel like it; which is hardly ever.

Most doctors usually come from privileged backgrounds with lots of contacts and links, they usually go to a private school which has contacts with the university they're applying for and are only prepared to put so much work in, for the money they receive.

Most nurses are indifferent towards patients (I know of several cases) they just want time to pass quickly and to talk to their colleagues.

Note the fact that I say: MOST, not all.

"People who fight for their own country" by attacking people who are innocent or are also 'fighting for their country'
In essence, you're saying when a hero kills another hero, they're both heroes? because logic, right?

Heroes are the ones who do something because they can't just stand and watch or see and ignore.

The person who calls 911, the kid who gets involved to stop things when someone else is being bullied.. etc.

those people who help even though they're terrified out of their wits, they do what they can to help another person. those people are MY heroes.

I think The Doctor said something similar but I believe everyday people are the greatest heroes.

Each and every One of Us have the "power" to change the World, and to move Mountains. In the End, it all simply comes down to how deep is Your resolve, and how hard for Your specific cause, or heroism going to fight.

Depends on what you refer to when you use the word "hero"
