Everybody has their own opinion of what a hero is. A hero is someone who does what they believe is right, no matter what anybody has to say. They stand their ground and don’t fall into negativity. A hero is someone who is selfless and inspires us to be a better version of our own selves. One of the best examples of a hero is Atticus Finch, a lawyer and father in the 1930s in the book To Kill A Mockingbird. Many may believe a different character in the novel is worthy enough of being called a leader but since the beginning of the book Atticus has greatly demonstrated the strong and bold qualities of a hero.

Most of the time, the obstacle seems to big for them to handle, but they overcome it in the end. A hero can be anyone in the world. A neighbor, a child, a firefighter, or a politician.

What is hero to you? A hero to me is a person who overcomes obstacles that almost everyone can't overcome, a person who does amazing things and is humble, a person who inspires people to do better or more than average and that is what my hero does for me.
There have been many people in my life who have impacted it both negatively and positively, but no one has had an impact in my life greater than my mom. This woman is just amazing in my eyes, right from the beginning because of the way she raised me, if I had children I would raise them the same way she raised me. The person she is, in general, has really had a great effect in my life, and also how she has always told me about the struggles shes had in her life from the ones I didn't see to the ones I have seen with my own eyes. I believe if I didn't know my mother as well as I do, she wouldn't have influenced me as much as she does.

If I had to pick one person that has passed away to come back again, it would be my great grandmother Valeria Ann Shurney. She was the coolest, she was a small lady, with a short haircut, and great style. She would pick me up every weekend to hang out with her. We would go to Wendys and dip fries in our frosty EVERY Saturday, and then to church on Sunday. She was the person I was with the most, so much I had began to think that I was her age. Drinking coffee, listening to tapes, and watching AMC with her all the time. More than anyone else she made sure that I had everything that I needed and more. Even the things my mom said no to, she made it happen. AFter all isnt it that what grandparents are for? To keep you out of trouble with your parents, to get you whatever you want, and the best part; unconditional love (and food.)
A hero is “Any person admired for qualities or achievements and regarded as an ideal or model” (“Hero”). When someone hears the word ‘hero’, they most likely think of firefighters, police officers, or soldier. However, the person who comes to my mind when I think of a hero is my mother, Becky Harper. She goes above and beyond each day, displaying characteristics of a hero. My mother can brighten up anyone’s day simply with the beautiful smile that is always on her face.
