Pat Tillman is a hero

A person who is prepared to lay down his life for others. Examples of such are members of our Armed Forces who serve on Operations around the world. Each and every one of which is a hero.

Not some Z list celebrity or footballer who can score the odd goal before being tapped on the ankle and rolling around like he has been shot by a sniper. And then getting up and waving an imaginary card at a referee! Get a f**king life!
All members of the Armed Forces should be classed as a hero.

A hero is someone who gets other people killed.
"You know what the definition of a hero is? You can look it up later." The hero, in this instance, being the cowboy in 'Serenity' whose bright idea it was to pull a gun while the crew was performing a heist on an Allied Occupied planet.

2. "Hero" is one of the most coolest and action-packed films I've ever seen.
Martin Luther King Jr. is seen as a hero for convincing white people that black people were being treated unfairly.

Someone of the lower social hierarchy order who adopts the "ways of a HERO" in order to make themselves look the social icon they dream to be. The first two known HEROs were CP and MEAT. Of course the whole HERO buisness was intended to be facetious and 'put on' but CP never quite saw it that way.
"The two HEROs met up at the Local HERO for a rogue one."
