    My hero is my grandfather.

    Even though he's not physically here anymore, I still remember everything he taught me about life. The guy even taught me how to fish when I was three...I will never forget those memories :')

    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...

    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...

    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.
