    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 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.
