    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...

    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.

    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...
