I believe a hero is someone who will stay by your side and not give up on you, whether it is your mom or it is Aragorn in the Lord of the Rings movies.  That person is a hero if he or she stands by your side.  I think that my parents are heroes because they don't give up on me, or any of my other brothers.  My mom, she is like a hero to me because she helps me in many of the things I do.  My dad is a hero to me because he is a good supporter and I know that he treats my mom with respect and would never get a divorce.  My parents keep my brothers and me from fighting.  They are smart, truthful and reliable to me.  My parents inspire me to be a good and responsible person and do the right thing when I'm being picked on, or hurt, or just not doing what I'm supposed to do.

  My mom is smart and funny and she is always there for me when I need help with something.  My dad is a genius and brings in a lot of money every week and he is a very special member for the family along with my mom and my brothers.  My neighbor is a big inspiration to me because she is nice and she is like a grandparent to me.  She inspires me to be nicer to people and to have a good hospitality even though she is not really my grandmother.

  My brother has been a big inspiration on me, but I don't think he is much of a hero because he is usually mean to my brothers and me and not all of his inspirations are good.

  My pastor is a hero to me because he spreads the Word of God to all the believers in church and he teaches in one of my classes to teach me about the Lord and why you drink wine and eat the bread and to understand church more.

  The policemen are heroes to me because they risk their lives to keep people safe and stop criminals from stealing and hurting people and put them in jail for a long time.  The soldiers are definitely heroes because they are risking their lives and are unselfishly going out and protecting our country from Iraq and any other countries that are attacking us and threatening us with any bombs or terrorism.

  I also think that firemen are heroes, like the ones at ground zero.  They didn't even think about themselves and went into the rubble to save all of the people that were in the twin towers and had survived.

  I think that everyone that is reliable, trustworthy, and nice is a hero and I can always rely on my parents to be there for me when I need them and that is a hero to me and I always can get good advice from them and help whenever I need it.
