Yes. From police officers to good samaritans that walk the streets. People that will give you a helping hand are super heroes just from their "super" personality to be kind to you and everyone else alike.

Yep, they do. I wouldn't say police officers or soldiers innately are though. Heroic acts happen all the time. Just recently, a trucker came upon a burning vehicle with people trapped inside; he grabbed a small fire extinguisher and rushed to help them, all the while a police officer kept his distance, 'calling for back up' no doubt.

For those saying soldiers are, choosing to take on a job to kill people is not 'heroic', nor is it 'defending' anything no matter how propaganda-ists and saber rattlers try to spin it. I know people that signed up just out of wanting to 'kill them some sand n*****'. Very 'heroic'.

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.


Hey, she just told her opinion what kind of people are heroes in her eyes, you don't need to be an ass about it


I'm sorry if that's how my message came across to you, but I felt as if it were unjust to give teachers, doctors and nurses so much credit. Looking back I suppose there's nothing wrong with being positive and optimistic. But I feel as if people who aren't doctors, teachers or nurses deserve more credit than arrogant doctors, teachers and nurses who should try to earn respect and status instead of thinking they are given it by getting them jobs and therefore not trying as hard as they should to make sure the job is executed correctly.

Yes.
Did you ever hear of that man who jumped in front of a train and pinned a guy who fell on the track down under the train on the New York subway? That saved his life.
