Who is a hero to you?
“My dad. He’s the most successful person I know. He taught me how to walk tall despite obstacles.”
“My mom. She was a single mom. Everything I learned about how to be strong and stand on my own I learned from her.”
“My grandfather. He moved to the states from Portugal and joined the military at 15, then came home, got married and raised nine kids.”
“Grandfather, a waterman on the East Coast. Before I would even be awake in the mornings, he would already be back with crab pots and flounder. A hard worker.”
“My dad. He did it all on his own, without help from anyone. He provided for his family and raised us well.”
