Can I be

a Hero?


我能成為
英雄嗎?
It could be said that there are many
types of heroism. First, the everyday
heroic acts that are performed by
unsung heroes that step in to save
the day in ways that we infrequently
hear of. Second, the famous heroes
we admire—pioneers in medicine,
defenders of peace and justice,
rescuers of the lost, champions of
faith.




英雄可以有很多種類。第一類,
日常的英雄行為,由無名英雄
以我們不常聽說的方式,來努
力挽救當時的情況。第二類,
那些我們仰慕的著名英雄——
醫藥界的先鋒,和平與正義的
捍衛者,迷失靈魂的拯救者,
信仰的護衛者。

You may not feel great or as if you have hero-
like qualities of your own, but each of us in our
own way is capable of heroic deeds. Even
though we don’t possess Superman’s powers
or Batman’s cache of gadgets, and even though
the problems we face can be much more
complex than the situations found in fiction,
the real world has never ceased needing heroic
people who are willing to stand up for what is
right and come to the aid of those in need.




你可能並不覺得自己有多好,或本身並
沒有任何類似英雄的品質。但 我們每
個人都可以自己的方式做出英雄之舉。
雖然我們沒有超人的能力或蝙蝠俠的裝
備,而我們面臨的問題,可能要比小說
中局勢明顯的情境要複雜得多,但現實
世界一直都需要有英雄氣概的人,他們
願意聲張正義,幫助那些有需要的人。

Each of us has some hero-like qualities. We all face
challenges. We all face hardships. We all encounter, during
our lifetime, moments when we can rise above our basest
of animal instincts and become angels of a higher calling. It
is at that time, when we answer that calling, that we
become a hero in the truest sense of the word.
我們每個人都擁有
一些像英雄一樣的
品質。我們都面臨
挑戰,我們都面臨
艱難。我們一生中,
都會遇到那種時刻,
那時我們凌駕我們
最卑劣的獸性、化
身為實踐一個更偉
大使命的天使。就
是在那樣的時刻,
當我們回應那呼召
時,我們真正地成
為一位英雄。
Who decided that heroes have to wear capes or have superpowers?

誰為英雄定義,說他們必須穿超人那樣的披風或擁有超級能力?

Invisible heroes may never make it into our
school textbooks, garner their own Wikipedia
entries, or have their own YouTube video that
goes viral. But they are all indispensable
members of our society. These hidden heroes
are also our most essential heroes.





無名英雄也許永遠不會被我們學校的教
科書所刊載,或爭取到屬於自己的維基
百科條目,或是有自己的火爆Youtube
專輯。但他們是我們社會不可或缺的成
員。這些無名英雄也是我們最重要的英
雄。
