My definition of a hero is a person who inspires someone or saves someone's life and makes someone's life better.

I think it is important to have a hero because it gives your life meaning and someone to look up too.

My hero is my mom. She fits the definition perfectly. She is someone I look up to for pretty much everything. She inspires me too.

My hero is so amazing. She does everything for me. From the simplest things to the best things. She pushes me to do my schoolwork and to try hard at everything. She is inspiring and good at everything. She is nice and will do anything no matter if she gets anything in return or not.
