by Jessica from Brooklyn Center

Tracy is one of the most important people in my life. She probably doesn't even notice how much I admire her. She has saved me from times of depression and from times it has made me feel life is not worth living any more. She makes me want to get out of the house. Actually, she helps me get out if I can't do it myself.

She's helped me a lot. She makes me laugh and sometimes she makes me cry. I think having a best friend is one of the most important things to have when you are a teen. I consider myself very lucky because, my friend Tracy comes with a package of other friends that are as friendly and as kind as Tracy, herself.

Many people I know, when asked who their hero is, name someone famous, someone they don't really know. I think that a hero needs to be someone you know and that you care about. Tracy, to me, is that and much more.
