What is a hero ? Many people have different opinions on what a hero is . I think that a hero is someone that stands up for others and what they believe in, and does not let anyone's opinion affect them . In my opinion I think that Jackie Robinson is a great example of a hero .

The first reason of why I think that Jackie Robinson is a Great example of a hero is that he stood up for what he and many people believed in . What I mean is that he believed in a more fair major and minor league in baseball were African Americans could play and that “ There's not an American in this country free until every one of us is free.” Therefore when he first started playing in the major leagues a lot people did not like him because of his race .
