Every one has a quest, whether it’s immoral, profound, or solicitous. A hero’s expedition could be a warrior showing audacity for glory, a father keeping his son oblivious to the danger upon them, or a hero for victims of polio, finding a vaccine for the world. Beowulf, stoic warrior, seeks to get rid of all the nefarious monsters for Denmark. He navigates from Geatland to Denmark to aid them in a time of need. He slays the creature Grendel and his mother. He does it not for gold, but for glory, “ I shall shape glory with Hrunting, or death Will hurry me from this earth!” [Pg. 50, 465] He shows outrageous fearlessness when facing the vile creatures. Will not be using his sword in battle but declares, “...my hands Alone shall fight for me, struggle for life Against the monster.” [Pg. 45, 267] Beowulf wants to service the Danes, while others want to serve their family. Guido, loving father and husband, devotes his life to keeping his son,Joshua, alive and blind of the threat around them. They are Jewish, at this time the Holocaust was happening and they were in a concentration camp. But Joshua believes he is in a competition. Where competitors win points if they do not ask for snacks,their mommy’s, and lollipops. The fist person to get a thousand points gets the prize, a real life tank. Like Guido, someone else is trying to save lives. Jonas Salk, American physician and researcher, spends years working on a vaccine to prevent polio for people that are at risk…
In many earlier civilizations the hero has been seen to change and develop across cultures and as time has passed. Beowulf is the center of attention as a hero as he is an Anglo-Saxon warrior. In Anglo-Saxon culture a hero has to have all three strength, wisdom, and courage. Death for an Anglo-Saxon warrior is honorable and the courage they need to possess to be thought of as a warrior needs to be shown even if it means death. They must be willing to achieve…

regretted bitterly, and still regret that I had not given it to him by inoculation. This I mention for the sake of parents who omit that operation, on the supposition that they should never forgive themselves if a child died under it, my example showing that the regret may be the same either way and that, therefore, the safer should be chosen (Markel, 2011, p. D5).
Franklin backed his stance in the following decades by compiling and publishing quantitative studies on inoculation’s value, while working…
Should parents avoid vaccinating? Is it effective? Is it practical?
Every day parents are risking the health and well being of their children by allowing doctors to inject them with vaccines because government and health officials say vaccines are safe. If vaccines are so safe, then why are so many children and infants developing life-altering and life-threatening diseases and illnesses after they receive them? This paper will give an insight as to how vaccines came about…

Parents can save their children's lives by vaccinating them. Medical…

These forms of the virus being transmitted can also be known as fecal-oral or oral transmission. (2) Though the polio virus can usually enter the…
A vaccine is a biological matter that is used to protect people from a particular disease. Vaccines provide active acquired immunity, which is that they provide protection by introducing a substance that contains the agent. The diseases that vaccines protect people from cause very serious illnesses and in some cases can cause death. When foreign substances, such as viruses or bacteria, invade our bodies an infection occurs which causes the…
