My hero is: Ron Kovic.
A man who turned a personal tragedy into a vehicle for reform. A motivational man who speaks directly and honestly to the people who treated him as a traitor when in reality he represented the very best of America. I have tried to model my life after Ron when confronted by hatred and discrimination by disarming the situation or voicing the goodness in the individual, oftentimes but not always making a bad situation less volatile. Thanks Ron for inspiring me to be a better american and a better person. God bless you.

Ana has helped me with a lot of my homeworks, she has studied with me for my tests and a lot of things like that and I am very thankful to her because of this.
C) Ana is very important to me, because she is so helpful, funny, supportive… I see her very often and we spend a lot of time together so I like her very much. She has made many differences in my life, for example she made my marks in school better… I admire her, because although she is now studying at the university, she finds time for me and others.

My hero is: Jeni Stepanek.
Happy Birthday, Jeni! It’s a delight and an honor to be able to send these good wishes your way. You’ve done so much for us all. When I first “met” Mattie through our many MY HERO stories – stories that were written by people of all ages and nationalities over many years - I could not believe such a precious and precocious child could exist. His nature and wisdom were unworldly. And then I learned about you – the person who had understood and guided him from infancy, despite his physical limitations as well as your own, while sharing his spirit and message with all of us. How blessed we have been to have you and Mattie as such a deeply-felt part of MY HERO. You and Mattie will always be an inspiration to us and to our guests.

My hero is: Jeni Stepanek.
Jeni Stepanek dreams of a world of peace and love and tolerance. I am forever grateful to her for sharing her voice, her art, her wisdom to make this dream a reality.
Jeni has had a profound impact on millions of people around the world and she has personally touched the lives of thousands of young people with her work at mattieonline.com The motto there, "Peace is Possible."
Jeni's determination to enjoy the journey and face the challenges with courage and bravery makes her light shine so very bright.
I was first introduced to Jeni and Mattie Stepanek by Jim Hawkins at the 1997 Children's Hospice International Conference. Jim knew about young Mattie and his beautiful poetry and profound wisdom and nominated Mattie and Jeni as heroes at our workshop in New Orleans. Mattie and Jeni have remained guiding lights for me as the years have passed.
Jeni's work with three-dot-dash and we are family foundation have brought her into the hearts of many young people who are forever changed for this opportunity.
Her journey has been so inspiring to all who know and love her. I am so thankful for Jeni and want the world to know that she has been and remains my hero.

My hero is: Jeni Stepanek.
My hero and great inspiration is Jeni Stepanek!
I've known about Jeni and her son Mattie all my life, being introduced at a young age to Mattie's Heartsongs.
But what an unexpected treat and delight when I was able to meet Jeni and call her my friend! Mama Peace! Along with the other teen leaders attending the Just Peace Summit, Mama Peace told us of her life, of her heartache, but also of her joy in living.
She taught us how to listen to each other, not just through our ears but with our hearts and spirits as well, how to open ourselves to the world around us with caring and empathy... a lesson that touched all of us deeply and changed our lives and viewpoints forever. She is the sweetest, kindest and gentlest soul I've ever met and I cannot wait to be in her presence again, whenever and wherever that may be.
Thank you Jeni for being a true inspiration and such a beautiful light in the world.
Sending you lots of love from me and my honeybees,
and HAPPY BIRTHDAY!

Bonne Anniversaire to the lovely, amazing, generous, talented, PEACE MAMA, Jeni Stepanek!
I had known about Jeni and Mattie through the MY HERO Project but when my daughter Slater was lucky enough to be a Global Teen Leader a few years ago through the We Are Family Foundation and got to meet and interact with Jeni I was blown away. By her capacity to inspire and empower young teens from around the world through her message of PEACE and, well, SO much more. THANK YOU JENI for all you do and continue to do... I met you virtually during this years GTL week in NYC but hope to meet you in person for our cup of tea. BLESSINGS and JOY and LOVE to you on your birthday!

My hero is my father, because he always support me in every single choice I make, he taught me how to be kind with everyone, not argue all the time, only when it is necessary and that arguing is not going to help you to resolve problems. He always helps me in homeworks, on school projects and when I decided to move to another school he respected my choice and he always help people and his employees. Once he helped to stop a fire in an old car that was on fire, so he always help people whenever he can.
