My Definition of Being a Hero
 
A hero to me is someone who goes out of their way to help people and is always there to make you happy when you're not
Is it Important to Have a Hero?
 
I'd say that it's important to have a hero, because most heroes to people are parents. Some people probably have a hero but the don't realize it yet. If you don't have a hero or don't want one, it's okay because you'll eventually find one. Everybody has one whether they want one or not.
My Personal Hero
 
My hero is my Grandma Carole from my Dad's side. I've grown up with her and she's always loved me. She always listened to me when I called her to say what achievements I've done. When my family went to visit her she would just talk to me or just play cards. She was a nurse and she always knew what to do when I hurt myself. After I lost tennis matches, got a bad grade, or when I was just sad she always knew how to make me smile, and that's why she's my hero. Unfortunately, last summer she passed away due to kidney failure. Even though she isn't here with me physically, she is always with me spiritually and that's very comforting.
Hall of Fame
 
My Grandma Carole is a big hero in my life and I think she should be honored and inducted into the Hero Hall of Fame. When she was healthy, she would always call me to talk and I'd like it! Most teenagers don't enjoy visiting their grandparents or talking to them on the phone, but you'd enjoy that if your grandma was like mine. All she wants to do is make you happy and have fun with you. If you're tired, she'll let you sleep in and if you're sick she'll take good care of you! Since she was a nurse, she loves making people feel better, and she's good at it too. She's great with children too, because she has 7 children, 8 grandchildren, and 3 great grandchildren. Always remember to love your grandparents as much as you can now and really appreciate all they do before you regret you didn't.

Extra Info

My Grandma was born on July 27th, 1933 and passed away June 17th, 2011. Every Memorial Day my family would all get together at my uncle Dan's house to celebrate and have fun. I'm sure this upcoming Memorial Day weekend we will all think of her and honor her on the day or memory. It's been almost a year now and she will be missed. Nevertheless, the Adams family will still have fun no matter what happens!
