This hero portrays the value of FRIENDSHIP
Submitted by over 4 years ago.
My hero is my dad. He passed away two years ago and yet it still feels just like yesterday he was here. He died of cirrhosis of the liver. It was hard watching him slowly fading away. He'd been to the hospital before but always came out. Until this day I had always thought of this as a dream. A dream, I'd soon wake up from.
His passing at such a young age made me want to live my life. Make friends with whom ever I could or mend friendships that had torn apart. My dad was the type of man who got along with anyone. He wasn't shy, but he wasn't cocky. He knew how to get a crowd to laugh. Everyone says I look like him and that I've got his personality. When I think about it sometimes, I believe I do. I'm always doing my best to make others laugh or happy. I hate being in some kind of fight. I'm always just aiming for happiness.
My dad is my faith and my hope at the beginning and end of everyday. He didn't get to do so many things he wanted to. His life had still so much more to offer. So, I've decided to move forward. I'm living my life to its fullest the way my dad probably wanted to. I'm setting goals and accomplishing them. It's thanks to my dad that I realized why my life is worth living and I can't wait till I see him again one day and can tell him all about it.
