English grade 8. Lesson 117

Are there some heroes who will be remembered forever? Or are all heroes doomed to be forgotten one day?

Heroes like George Washington, and Theodore Roosevelt, will be remembered forever.  But there are some heroes that are only remembered for a short time before the people move on.  It is like your mother or father, when they die, you may forget them.  Not all heroes are doomed to be forgotten one day.  Another thing is that they can not be remembered forever.  It has be just over 200 years since George Washington was president.  And it has not be 100 years since the last great president was alive, Franklin Roosevelt.

“Time has a doomsday book, on whose pages he is continually recording illustrious names. But as often as a new name is written there, an old one disappears. Only a few stand in illuminated characters never to be effaced. — Henry Wadsworth Longfellow”

You see, the older heroes are replaced with the younger ones.

Are there some heroes who will be remembered forever? Or are all heroes doomed to be forgotten one day?  Yes and Yes will be my answer.
