142487Thomas Edison, CC BY-SA 4.0 via Wikimedia CommonsMy hero is greatly known for his great invention. He is a hero because he invented something we use every day, light. Machines, light bulbs and many more things that were implemented in our lives for the better. As many times as he failed, he still worked towards his goal until he got there. He once said, “Genius is one percent inspiration, ninety-nine percent perspiration.” He never gave up. The image I chose shows one of the many machines that he made and received an award for.
