Political Teen Tidbits
So far only two people have written in to tell us about their heroes, and they are below my post. Anyone else have a hero??
I have only one hero in my life and all the friends who know me knew EXACTLY who I was going to choose. So ..... for the rest of you who don't know me that well just yet ........
My hero is my brother Andy who became my guardian when he was still in his teens, right after my mom went to prison. Andy has given up a whole lot to become the best mom or dad of anyone anywhere! He makes mistakes like all people do, but then he tries to correct them and I know he works really hard at everything he does.
Andy is a corporal and even though he has not fought in any wars (THANK GOD!) he is still a hero to all the soldiers that ride in a truck, tank or helicopter that he fixed, armored or prepared for the desert.
I am a teenager and he could leave me to raise myself if he didn't want to be bothered, but he doesn't do that. He teaches and guides me and gives me rules to be safe and gives me a clean and wonderful apartment to grow up in (that I have to clean most of the time, but oh well). He spends time with me and goes running with me and comes to all of my school events.
Andy could just put in his time at the base but he doesn't. He does his job the absolute best that he can and he cares about ALL the troops over there in Iraq. He will get on the internet at night to help a mechanic friend over there and will make sure that the troops that leave his base have the very best equipment and vehicles they can possibly send.
Andy is my hero and a little bit Americas hero too.
