What is a hero? And no, I’m not talking about chocolate, as I’m sure quite a few of you just so cleverly answered. ‘Hero’ is a word that has taken many forms over time. The adjective ‘heroic’ has been converted to a grand noun, and now it is a word that is thrown around on the tongue without a second thought. It used to be treated with care, and saved up to be spent on the right person at the right time, not only emphasise the compliment, but to enhance the strength of gratitude taken from it. Now? It has been degraded to offhandedly describe someone who has too much money to know what to do with, enough fake tan to be visible from space, and someone who hasn’t actually done anything ‘heroic’ (if we still go by the old meaning) at all. Not to stereotype. It is used to describe someone who is more of an influence, interruption or even a distraction from real life. A celebrity.
