President Obama is teens’ hero
Every generation has its heroes. Today’s 18 year-olders have their own. And they think President Barack Obama is the one they can turn to when something is wrong.
The Harris Poll conducted an open-ended online survey asking teens over 18 to name the person they admire enough to call their hero.
Guess who topped the list, it’s President Barack Obama!
Other top 10 heroes are listed below:
2. Jesus Christ
3. Martin Luther King
4. Ronald Reagan
5. George W. Bush
6. Abraham Lincoln
7. John McCain
8. John F. Kennedy
9. Chesley Sullenberger
10. Mother Teresa
According to Yahoo!, the question was first asked in 2001, that time the top 5 were: Jesus Christ, Martin Luther King, Colin Powell, John F. Kennedy and Mother Teresa.
George W. Bush who’s # 5 now was only 19th in 2001. Such a strange thing to happen, isn’t it?
Well, heroes change from time to time.
Teens believe that you deserve to be named a hero when you do what’s right regardless of personal consequences, don’t give up until the goal is accomplished, do more than others expect form you, overcome adversity, and stay level-headed in a crisis.
Hey, if take it all into account, then I’m my own hero! Though it doesn’t mean I don’t admire President Obama.
