How do you define a Hero?

I like the sentiment in this image but I wonder if we water down the definition of hero by saying that it is about intentions and not actions? Reminds me of the saying that opines that the road to hell is filled with good intentions. To me the definition of hero has to include the idea of real love and sacrifice. Apart from that the word is meaningless to me. What do you think? How do you define a hero?


  1. I would say a hero is fearless, putting other people's needs first, doing what is right no matter what the cost.
