Final copy of The Outsiders essay is now due Friday.  Example of conclusion  The Outsiders reminds us that there is not just one definition for a hero and that even though life might not always be fair, that does not stop people from caring for their friends and family.  Even though the Socs appear to have a better life with their nice cars, popularity and good reputation, they will never have the love and respect that the greasers show towards one another. That is worth so much more.  The real heroes are not the fake friends or the nice cars; the real heroes are the people who you know you can count on and the people who care about you and the greasers are lucky enough to have this.   Johnny, Dally and Ponyboy are definitely proof of this, they just had to come out of "hiding" to prove it.
