A hero is a normal person who goes above and beyond to do what's right. Heroes aren't always movie stars or actors. They can just be everyday people doing what they need to survive in everyday life. The reason it's important to have a hero is because it fuels our ambition to succeed and do better in life.

My dad is my hero because he didn't grow up with much and he worked hard all of his life and now he has the things he wants because of his hard work.

My dad has gone through a lot of hardships in his life and he has overcome them all. Growing up my dad's family didn't have much money so he had to work for things he wanted. All through high school he never got anything lower than an A. He graduated high school top of his class. He only got four B's all through college and was working all the way through college. He worked hard all of his life and now he has a great life to show for it.

I believe my dad relates a lot to his hero because everything he does he tries his hardest and is passionate about it. I respect my dad because he has always worked hard through his whole life. His hero ran our nation well, was respected by everyone, and made many life changing decisions for many people worldwide. I feel like my dad is respected by everyone too and he makes important decisions in my life and I've had a better life because of it.
