A hero is someone you look up to.
Someone to fashion your life style to.
A hero fights for what's right.
A hero is forgiving.
A hero is someone you share time together with.
It's people who are there for you when you need them like Big Brothers/Big Sisters.
Christine's heroes are the people who participate in the Special Olympics. They show others what we can do when we put our minds together. We can do anything! Her niece Diane is also her hero. She knows what she likes to eat and goes right down the line with things she likes to do. TV is boring.
Gabriel's hero is his big brother. When Gabriel had a seizure in a tall grass field, his brother carried him up to his mother's apartment.
John's hero is God himself and Jesus. He looks out for us. Through him all things are possible.
Mike's hero is his dad because he never says no to a request for help. And his sister who helped him when he had a seizure and blacked out. She gave him CPR. If she wasn't there, he wouldn't be here today.
Mark's hero is God, of course, and police and firefighters who helped him when he got shot. The Able Access driver is also a hero to Mark. He left his prizes from bingo on the bus. He called at 7 am and the driver dropped them off right away.
Diane's hero is Lori who picks her up every Sunday and takes her to church and "wherever" after.
Jakes heroes are his teachers. If it wasn't for them, he wouldn't have gotten a job when he was in high school.
