I've been wondering lately what it is that defines a hero. Some definitions describe it was a person or a character that displays a great amount of courage and self-sacrifice when faced with danger. The truth is, I've never thought of it that way. I'd like to compare this definitions to the world today. Nowadays, there are only a few situations where a great amount of courage is needed. For example, in my opinion, firefighters are not heroes. It is only natural not to be afraid of fire, as long as you are well equipped and you've been instructed not to touch it. A true act of heroism would be if you were to save somebody from a burning building without it being your duty, which is the case of firemen.
Another quality a true hero should posses is HONOR. But that is not the honor of receiving a Nobel prize, but the honor of knowing that you're the best person you could be. What I'd like to talk to you today about is a person that deserves our support and recognition. This is my friend, Shinji, an artist that I deeply respect and that is very skillful. Her art is graceful, unique and all in all gorgeous.
She has recently been informed that the store where she was working is closing, so she is soon to be out of a job. Unfortunately, she lives in a country where the economy does not support young people, so it will be quite hard for her to find another job, let alone a good one.
This is why our support is necessary. DeviantArt is a community for artists to flourish, whose purpose is to bring talented people in the headlights
. So if you'd like to help shinji-ro
, please check out her commission prices
and buy some art!
She sells her art really cheap, compared to other people and it is really worth it. Believe me, it is hard to find such a good artists at such low prices, so give her a shot!
This is all, my minions,
Until the next update,
