~There's a Hero~

~There's a Hero~

  One of my favorite artists of all time (but especially in the 90's) is Mariah Carey. She has some of the best songs ever created. Among the songs that are on the top of the list, is one entitled "Hero." The course of the song goes like this: 
  
                                     And then a hero comes along
                                     With the strength to carry on
                                     And you cast your fears aside
                                     And you know you can survive

                                     So when you feel like hope is gone
                                     Look inside you and be strong
                                    And you'll finally see the truth
                                           That a hero lies in you
 
   The message of the song is that you don't need to look to anyone to show you how to be a strong person, all the courage that you need is right there inside of yourself. This message is very true for many people; you don't need anyone, especially negative people, to tell you what you can and cannot do. You are the only person that can determine how bright your future is and decide what and how much you want to achieve in life. It is only an added bonus when you have those positive people in your life that inspire you to do more than you expected yourself to do. Luckily for me, I have one of those added bonuses in my life. I have my parents to look up to.
 
     My parents came from Ghana and made a life for themselves in New York City. They took the circumstances that they were in and made it positive. My parents found a way to find really good careers and create a stable environment for their family. They raised three intelligent daughters and always ensured that we never needed for anything. They always want the best for themselves and for their children. So much of myself has come from my parents, both genetically and formatively. My parents taught me how to be loving, selfless, brave and independent. With those tools and the passion that I already have within, I can look inside my self and be strong in most any situation. For that reason, my parents are my heroes.
