Many times in life, we look to celebrities or people of influence as examples of heroes, and there is absolutely nothing wrong with that. Who we often forget on our list of influential heroes are the people who do the simplest yet most complex things: love us unconditionally through life’s ups and downs and failures and successes… Let us not forget our parents & loved ones.

Our parents and loved ones have helped us with life problems, setbacks, and other challenges. They have helped us grow, showing us right from wrong, teaching us about life and helping us when we needed it most.

To me, a hero is someone that we can model ourselves after. A person we can look up to and strive to be like; who we imagine when we ask what would that person of done in this situation. By definition, a hero is a person admired for achievements and noble qualities. Heroes don’t need to own a cape or go out every night to fight the world’s villains. Our heroes can be ordinary people, the ones we love day in and day out.

There is nothing wrong if your hero wears a cape and goes out to save the world but remember, before superman and batman, it was mom and dad that were saving us!!
