Who is My Hero?

March 5, 2017


I have seen this question in different forms pop up throughout my life. To be honest, I still don’t have a genuine answer. Recently, I watched a video of Matthew Mcconaughey Oscar’s speech. Someone had asked him this exact question, and he didn’t know how to respond. Later on, he told the person that asked him that his hero was himself in ten years.┬áTen years pass. The same person that approached Matthew asks him if he’s a hero. Matthew says that he’s not even close; his hero is ten years away.

The point that he’s trying to get across is that we should always be striving to become a better person. Our self in ten years is something that we desire to be. We don’t need a hero to look up to; we are our own heroes.
