Hi! My hero is my Grandfather. He left Ireland to come to the United States when he was 18 years old. He arrived with little money and no family, yet with an extremely positive attitude. A few years later he joined the US army even though this country would still not grant him citizenship. This action was very true to his character: even when he has very little reason and minimal resources he never ceases to be a generous man. Through demonstration he has taught me the value of honesty and hard work. If I am even half the person he is by the time I am his age I will be very proud.

Who is your hero?

Your penpal,
