    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 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...
