(1) Smoke pours out from the third story window as people try to find water hoses. (2) Neighbors hold the owners of the house back; their little girl was sleeping in that room! (3) Just then the front door opens,

flames visible behind, and a firefighter carries the little girl out, coughing but safe and sound. (4) A hero saves the day again. (5) Heroes are people who put their lives on the line to protect us; moreover, heroes act decisively even in high pressure situations. (6) In the epic poem The Odyssey by Homer, Odysseus is an example of a hero just like this. (7) Odysseus is a hero because he is calm under pressure and he risks his life to protect his friends.

(1) Because he risks his life for others and is calm under pressure, Odysseus is clearly a hero. (2) Again and again, in The Odyssey Odysseus resists panicking while encountering monsters and natural disasters. (3) And again and again, Odysseus stand up for his friends, saving them from danger and from themselves. (4) He is much like the a courageous firefighter who saves the day, making a decision to risk his life entering a

burning building and remaining composed in the face of danger a hero.
