What Makes a Hero?

Did you know that adventure stories with a hero usually follow a set pattern, from the Hunger Games to the Hobbit?  This excellent TED animation (aimed at young people, useful to everyone) goes through the cycle of hero storytelling and then brings the focus back around to us – can we be the hero of our own adventure? The answer is a resounding yes – as we are all human (and the one mistake in this very cool video was it said that Frodo was one: which he isn’t!).
