The best of this week's student essays

Prompt: What is a hero? Use a character from any film you have seen recently to define what it means to be a hero in today's society.

Memorable responses:

"[Spiderman] gets to swing around all day and when theirs is trouble he could sens it with is spidy seens know that is ganster. I also like his attitude he is not a cold blooded bastard that acts fuck up. Neither a consided muthefucker he acts like himself just who he is suppost to be."

"Then they say a girl name Lisa so Terminator start shooting they had to take Lisa were they stay at. They had to take the robots a way from her. The boy name Alan he was helping Terminator fight."

"But I think if Superman really excist in this time he would have to be Hood and get to know all the gangs of LA and he probably would be Black with nappy hair and with muscles. But he would be cool with the Bloods and the Crips and that would be his reason for his Red and Blue outfit."

    Every day, my love of you grows more and more.

    (Okay, before this gets creepy, just know that this is completely in jest. Or at least mostly in jest.)

    Also, out of curiosity, exactly how old are these kids of yours?

  3. In this case, high school seniors. 16-18 years old. And these are much better than the sophomores.

    I actually think the Bloods and Crips thing is kind of astute. The kid might have something there.

    I'm offended. On several levels.

    ...and mildy amused.


Please leave a name, even if it's a fake name. And try not to be an asshole.
