“ Day after day I am in slaughterhouses, or lying in wait at midnight with a squad of police near some dog pit. Lifting a fallen horse to his feet, penetrating buildings where I inspect collars and saddles for raw flesh, then lecturing in public schools to children, and again to adult societies. Thus my whole life is spent."
How do we define the personality traits of a hero?
A hero is someone who is trustworthy and honest. They are selfless and good. Heroes do what is right, even if they are going it alone.
Henry Bergh, the founder of the ASPCA, helped millions of animals as well as people. My essential questions will help explain what he did, when he did it, where Bergh has been, and why my hero did what he did. I will also research how his organization was funded and who else was involved. The one question I want answered most is why he went through so much for animals, even though he was wealthy and did not have too.
Henry Bergh not only founded the ASPCA, he actively helped animals, as well as abused children.
