My hero is: First Lt Douglas Ferguson. I was in fifth grade. My family wanted to be involved . We went out and donated and received MIA and POW bracelets to wear. The young man on my bracelet never came home. And years after his parents died his remains were finally brought home. I still have that bracelet and will always have it. Every single young boy that was sent to that terrible place is a hero. And all the veterans from previous wars. Thank you Ron for your books and your truth!

Jessica from Dublin, OHIO USA- 4/20/2017 at 3:27:57 PM.
My hero is: My grandpa, Don. A hero doesnít have to be able to fly, or have mind reading powers. I think that a hero is someone who is brave, always thinks of others before themselves, perseveres, looks on the bright side and has love in their heart. My grandpa, Don, showed all of these characteristics throughout his life. When my grandpa was a child, his parents worked in a small bakery. He loved to run and he was one of the fastest of his friends. When he was about ten years old, he was diagnosed with Polio. Polio is a disease that attacks your nerves. It makes you very sick. In some cases it can make you paralyzed. My grandpa was paralyzed in his back and legs. He was in and out of the hospital for over a year. But he didnít let that ruin his life. He went to college and became an accountant. Getting Polio was definitely not a good thing, but some good did come out of it. If he didnít get Polio, he might not have gone to college. The reason he was able to go to college is because his aunt helped pay for it since he couldnít work a job like his parents. Going to college opened up a lot of new opportunities for him. As an adult, he married my grandma, took care of 3 children and worked as an accountant. When he got older, he unfortunately developed heart failure. He was back in the hospital. He was in the hospital for years. Eventually he was able to go home but he was still sick. He died at home one night. We were all sad that he was gone but happy that he had had a long and full life. My grandpa was one of the bravest people I knew. Once when I was a baby, we went to visit my grandparents. My grandpa didnít know that I knew how to go down stairs. I was walking down the basement stairs when my grandpa saw me. He cared about me so much that he was about to push himself out of his wheelchair and fall to catch me. This demonstrates three characteristics of a hero. This shows that he is brave, always thinks of others before himself and that he has so much love. When he was in the hospital for holidays because of his heart failure, we would visit him. You could either say that itís sad he has to be in a hospital for holidays, or you could say that itís happy that we got to visit him. He always chose to see the happy side of it. This shows that he always looks on the bright side of things. Before my grandpa got Polio, he loved to run and was very fast. Once he got Polio he couldnít do it anymore. But that didnít stop him from anything. When he was in college, he played on a wheelchair basketball team. This shows that he doesnít let his disabilities stop him, and that he perseveres. My grandpa is my hero. He was an amazing person who showed all of these characteristics and much more. He did some great things and affected so many people throughout his life.

Lera from ,  Moldova- 4/19/2017 at 4:14:55 PM.
My hero is: My hero is Harry Potter. Since the year Harry Potter was introduced to the world, he has become one of the most popular characters in the history of literature. He is adored by everyone I know: children, adults and even some elderly people. This orphaned boy has to live with his unpleasant relatives, because heís lost his parents. He attends the Hogwarts School where they teach him different magical tricks. In fact, itís a place where he studies wizardry. In total, there are seven books about the boy, all written by an incredibly gifted author - Joanne K. Rowling. In most chapters he fights the evil Voldemort, who was responsible for the death of his parents. All books were pictured on the screen and I should say that the films are as interesting as books. In fact, Harry has two best friends as stated in the story. Their names are Hermione and Ron. Some people prefer reading the books, but I liked the movies more. There are many moving moments there, such as Harryís dance with Hermione, friendsí support in hard times, etc. Thanks to J. K. Rowling the story is impactful and catchy. Iím sure it brightened many childrenís life. ďHarry PotterĒ books were written for people of any religion, race or nationality. Perhaps, thatís why it has become the worldís best-selling series. Itís important that throughout the novel the writer brings out some vital topics, such as the choices which we make in life or the directions that we take. These choices determine the individual character of the main hero. In my opinion, watching the movies or reading the books about Harry Potter, children learn many invaluable lessons. Apart from that, the story is full of humorous moments.

My hero is: Grandma Penny. My grandma was named Penny and was born in 1947 in Lamesa,Texas. When she was a kid she had a kind and fun personality. Her favorite thing to do as a toddler was play with her dolls.She was kind to her and sister Candy. Candy is my great aunt with skin cancer. Penny and Candy play a lot but read a lot too. Her mom was named Memo and she was very nice. At about the age of 4, she started to read and she still loves it. When she was growing up her beloved job was being a mother. But when she grew up her first job was flight attendant but she didnít like that job she became a 6 grade teacher. In 1977, she had my mother but at this time she was still a 6 grade teacher. She got divorced a few years later. She had a boyfriend this year but she broke up with him. I never seen that grandpa before. I only seen him when I was a baby. All I remember is that he was a college professor. But after a few years later she retired from her job and supported her daughter in college and when my mom had my brother, she started hanging out with us. Some of her heroic qualities are like how she raised two amazing kids all by herself. But the problem with her is HOW MUCH SHE TALKS!!!!

My hero is: Joseph Smith. Joseph Smith is an amazing hero. He was a religious hero of the Mormon church. He was born on December 23, 1805 and died on June 27, 1844. He was the first modern day prophet of the restored Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. Joseph smith grew up in a one room cabin with a huge family. When Joseph Smith was 14 he had a vision. He told his family but they didnít have the same beliefs as him. Later on his brother Hyrum helped him. That vision he had at 14 lead him to translate the Book of Mormon. He was extremely brave, and selfless. He found the brass plates, a religious document of Mormonism. And restored the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. He had to be extremely brave to do this because many people didnít believe what he was teaching and hated him for that. People tried to kill him he was even thrown in jail by them, some even tried to steal the brass plates. A part of the brass plates called the book of Lehi is still missing. After he got the plates and the Urim and Thummim a tool use to translate the plates, he was able to translate the plates so we can read them today. After this he started the church and taught from the book of Mormon. He also had to be selfless to teach other people while risking his own life. He died on June 27, 1844 by murder from an angry mob. He dedicated his life to sharing and protecting the Book of Mormon. That is why he is an amazing hero.

Audrey from Winchester, VA USA- 3/31/2017 at 11:49:06 AM.
My hero is: President Abraham Lincoln. Abraham Lincoln was definitely a hero. He was a very brave man. Lincoln was the 16th President from April 4, 1861 through April 15, 1865. Lincoln was brave and had courage because he led the American Revolutionary War. Also, while he led the American Revolutionary War he also was sacrificing his life, by leading it. He must of had patience during the war too, because it isnít like he would go out and they would be waiting for him ready to fight! He was caring, and had many friends that liked him because he was nice to them. Friends, such as, Joseph Gillespie, William Seward, William Butler, Noah Brooks, and Abram Bergen. Lincoln is known for his honesty, because everyone could trust him and tell them the truth. Lincoln was really tall, his height was 6í4. That might not sound too tall, but he wore a top hat that was really tall and made him look much taller! Lincolnís average weight was about 180 pounds! What!?! Yup, 180 pounds! Some of Lincolnís favorite foods were, oyster stew, apples, cheese and crackers, and nuts. Lincoln managed to abolish slavery, be self educated, be part of the United States House of Representatives! He did a LOT in his life, before he was assassinated. Lincoln was assassinated on April 5, 1865 by John Wilkes Booth. He mustíve been very focused because you just CANíT lead a war if you arenít focused! He was selfless, because if you are leading a war, it isnít JUST peace for you, itís for the rest of the country you are fighting for! Abe Lincoln is one of MY heroes because he was brave.

Josie from Winchester, VA USA- 3/31/2017 at 11:46:58 AM.
My hero is: Neil Armstrong. Neil Armstrong Neil Armstrong has been an inspiration to me in several ways. He was the first man on the moon with the quote ďone small step for man, one giant leap for mankind.Ē Neil Armstrong was born in Wapakoneta, Ohio on August 5th 1930. When he landed on the moon, it inspired people everywhere to believe they can do something if they put their mind to it. He inspired me because if someone can land on the moon in a spacesuit almost no gravity and in freezing temperatures, then I can definitely land on a radiated planet with frozen waters. (my goal is to be the first woman on mars.) Neil Armstrong passed away on August 25th, 2012 living to be 82. Neil Armstrong was brave, courageous, and daring. The reason why I say this is because he, Buzz Aldrin, and Michael Collins took a chance on not coming back from the moon. While he was on the moon Neil collected samples and took pictures. one of which was his footprint. The spaceship they used was the Apollo 11. They landed in the pacific ocean, west of Hawaii. After they landed, they were put in quarantine for 3 weeks. https://www.nasa.gov/centers/glenn/about/bios/neilabio.html http://www.biography.com/people/neil-armstrong-9188943#moon-landing
