My Brother Ebbie
by Ashlee Cohen of Taft High School
My hero is my 19 year old brother, Ebbie. He is always there to support me when I feel weak in spirit; he talks to me and understands my perspective. Why is Ebbie my hero? Well, you should know that at some point in my life my parents fought severely. I was always crying, lonely, and had no idea what to do. My dad always said rude and inappropriate things to my mother in front of the children that made me just want to die. But, my brother Ebbie, always took me away from it and made me feel better. Because of these fights and how crazy and disturbed it made me, I decided to run away from home. My brother stopped me and saved me from running away. He brought me back home, never left me alone, and helped me define myself. He took care of me when my Mom was too weak. He took me to school, fed me, always made sure I was okay. That was the most valuable thing anyone can do for me. That is why he is my hero.
