    Heroes...

    One of my heroes died last week, aged 97.  He was heroically kind, heroically humble, heroically compassionate.  Maybe not the usual virtues we associate with heroes, but they are virtues I value and he had them in spades.  My father was my first hero, for his...

    Uncle Buck. My hero is a man

    who sadly isn't with us anymore, i'm of course talking about the late great John Candy. He was a very underrated comedian and a very kind man, no one had anything bad to say about him and he never had anything bad to say about them either. He was proof that you don't need to...

    I am a Christian. Jesus Christ is my Hero.

    I also believe personally that people who are willing to die so others can live are heroes. I believe that when a person is making choices that hurt themselves or others then actually stop making those harmful choices, they are a hero to themselves. I do believe there are...

    I love Lebron James. He's gone through a lot of

    struggles in his life and he over came them all to be the player and father he is today. I admire his play on the court every time he steps foot on the floor. Thank you for coming back to Cleveland Lebron your a great player and a even better man.

    I didn't need comic books,

    TV or stories of heroes. I had one in reality who I still try to live up to whenever I am challenged to. He was a boatman, a fisherman and a lifeboatman but before that also a soldier. He fought in Burma with the Chindits, caught malaria and was listed missing in action. My...

    My hero/heros (cause they're a band) is Black

    Veil Brides. Now I know that not everyone likes the band, but I love them because they send a message through their music, and they're not really religious-- I'm not either, but the main message is to be yourself, and stand up for yourself and what you believe-- if you like...
