I would like to nominate my dad as a hero. He lives across the country from me and my husband, but is never more than a phone call or email away. My husband and I live in beautiful Colorado where the mountains have become our backyard and playground. From time to time I find myself faced with having to do...

I am nominating my mom as my hero. I love my mother very much. She is always cheering me on to reach my dreams. Even though she didn't reach all of her dreams, she wants me to reach mine. She is my hero because she is the perfect mom. I have said a few bad things to her, but she is very, very forgiving. If I...

I never ever thought my dad would be a hero to me, but he is now. See this week we found out he has cancer. But that is just part of my story. I never liked my dad. I feel like I wished his cancer on him. I have Autism and a lot of other problems. I love to ride my horse and do gymnastics. I thought my dad never...

My hero is my dad because he encourages me to live my life and he tells me what is right and what is wrong. I look up to him because he was there for me all my life and he never left me and he never will. He is just a great person to look up to. He is always there for me.

My dad has been in the Army Reserve for 25 years and he is extremely patriotic. I never understood why my dad wanted to die for his country but he tells me all the time that 'someone has to do it' and that he 'would rather die in battle defending his country and its people than of old age.' To see him put that...

My mom married this guy named Russell when I was around two years of age. Which is probably the best decision she ever made. He saved my family from crashing down. He saved me from becoming a worthless person to this world. I thought I was taking up space and breathing some better person's air. Through time he...
