According to the article, How Jackie Robinson Changed Baseball, “Jackie Robinson inspired a lot of players to be more aggressive when playing their position and to not give up.”  This shows that people act heroically because they want to be role models by relentlessly pursuing their passion, no matter the consequences, to make a difference in society and inspire those who are watching to fight for their rights.

Jackie Robinson would act heroically because he knew that someday he would be the first african-american to play baseball and have people look look up to him.For example,people act heroically because they want to make other people mad and not like them.

Being heroic or doing heroic actions can make people feel good about themselves because they would feel like they helped others. Usually, an action that changes people and how they live can be a bold move. Claude McKay was a writer who expressed how he felt in his works. In one of his works called,  If We Must Die he states” If we must die, let it not be like hogs.” I think that McKay means that you need to die with a purpose. “What though before us lies the open grave?” This quote means that he does not care if he dies fighting for his rights as a colored person. He just wishes to change colored people’s lives and to make them happy.
