Con

Many people, infact,believe that heroes existed only in the past .However, this belief is wrong because nowadays there are many heroes such as doctors,firefighters, etc they are all saving our lives so anyone can be a hero in the modern world

Pro

Your position (Con) does not match the statement you gave above, but I will debate this to the best of my ability. As pro, I assumed I would be saying there are heroes in the modern world, but con seems to be saying that. I will debate which ever side my opponent does not support.

Considering pro has not made his/her position clear, I cannot post a sufficient argument. Considering an unclear position and forfeiting of my opponent, please vote Con

Clarify - is your opinion that it IS (more?) possible to be a hero in the modern world or that it ISN'T?

You've taken the con opinion as to suggest that your answer is "no, it is not possible".
