What Makes A True Hero?. Uh….. Um.. Moving on?. My Personal Criteria For What Makes A Hero: A hero must be someone that puts others before himself/herself Someone that motivates and inspires others from doubt Does what is necessary but never looks for something in return

So why do I think Rick Hanson is a true hero? He is someone that perfectly fit my criteria. Even though he was handicapped at a young age, he didn’t care much about himself he moved on and wanted the experience of other people with his disability to be more enhanced than his was. He became an inspiration to many people even those without a disability, he made people feel better about themselves. He graduated in physical education even with his condition, he sacrificed his time and ran across 34 countries, he raised over 10 million dollars for spinal cord research and throughout his life he continued making fund-raisers and health care organizations.
