A hero is any person who is admired for courage, outstanding achievements, or noble qualities. You may not know it, but there are many heroes that are just like you. One hero is Temar Boggs, a 15-year-old that saved a little girl from being kidnapped. 5-year-old Jocelyn Rojas was playing outside when she turned a corner to get her bicycle and vanished. After her mother called 911, police and firemen soon swarmed the area to search the suburban neighborhood. Temar Boggs and some of his friends were helping his neighbor move a couch into the apartment they lived in when he was asked if he had seen Jocelyn. None of them had seen her, so Temar later walked to Jocelyn’s block to check out the situation. This is where he was approached with a photo of Jocelyn, and he felt an intense emotion he’d never experienced before. Temar said, “I felt that I was going to find her” then, he borrowed his friend’s BMX. He sped away with his friend Chris Garcia back to his own subdivision. Searching without a plan, they eventually spotted a car with a suspicious older man and a little girl in the back. Temar said that he instantly knew it “was her, for sure.” After being tailed by the boys, the driver eventually the girl out of the car. Temar saved the girl from a alleged abductor and he was considered a hero. He risked being hurt for a little girl he did not know. Temar states, “I didn’t do it for attention. I just wanted to help.” This is how Temar Boggs, a brave young man, became a hero.
