My ancestors are among my favorite heroes. The Crawfords of Scotland were a strong noble lineage with many worthwhile heroes. Among them was the legendary William Wallace. After family research was done, I grew up listening to Dad read all about my ancestors. I was fiercly proud of them and patterned my life after them--faithful, courteous, noble, strong willed, outspoken... Everyone needs heroes to look up to. Who is your heroe?

my mother is still my biggest hero! She's intelligent, strong, loving, and very witty! She's just one of those rare, kindhearted people with a sort of glow about her. She raised me pretty much by herself, my father died when i was 7, and would do anything for our family! My mom is my hero...i'm a total momma's boy - except that i'm a girl...momma's girl - does that work? Anyhoo - my mom rocks the casbah!

My hero is an auntie who lost her family in a house fire. Yes, sounds odd, I know. But instead of giving in to all the depression that (I) would feel at getting out of a burning house only to know (my) two children and pets were inside (and then becoming injured in trying to go back in), she has used her faith to become an inspiration to others.

It has been a long time since she has had to rebuild her life, with everything (in my eyes) lost. But she is in a helping profession, active in her community, and forthright about what happened, not hiding it, but using that energy to spurn her forward. I could write a book on her good deeds, but suffice it to say, she's getting married again and helping raise his children.

For her spiritual and emotional strength alone, she is inspiring. For all that she has brought to other's lives since then, she's my absolute hero.

My sainted mother--she aways has been but when she died, I realized from listening to others that there was even more good to her than I knew.

My parents. The way they put up with the grief I gave them when I was a teenager has taught me to be much more tolerant of others.

I'm going to go with my parents as well. My Mom has endured so many health issues and has not ever given up. She takes in family members when she needs to without even thinking about it. She is so much stronger than I knew, as I have realized since my Dad's death.
My Dad tought me so many valuable lessons that I never even knew about until I became an adult, married and had children.
I hope I can be at least half the kind of people that my parents are (were).
GOD BLESS THEM!!!

My heroes have gone through changes as I grew. I remember Alley Oop (the cartoon caveman) was my heroe when I was little. My dad didn't talk to me much and Alley Oop looked like my dad so I thought the things he did in the comic strip were pretty cool. As I grew older, superman became my hero, then President Jonh F. Kennedy, then Waylon Jennings, Johnny Cash, and Willie Nelson. After that, I floundered in a void of no heroes untill I discovered Jesus was quite heroic. Wow- man- God put us on this grand adventure and then he provided his Son to solidify our destiny as immortal souls!

He even allowed Jesus to have a sidekick- the holy spirit! Anyway, now that I have my sites set on absolute thruth - that is the truth of selfless love, I am hard pressed to find another heroe that's better.
Although Popeye and the Astronauts still rank mighty high in my book!

Hmm let me see - my mom is my hero because she fought such a couragous battle against ALS (she had Binswanger's Disease); my neice (she's just 32) is my hero because she is fighting a tremendous battle against breast cancer & just had a mastectomy; my husband is my hero because he has taken such good care of me this year while I've been ill; John Wayne is my hero cuz he's, well, John Wayne; and of course the Lord is my hero because I give up all my troubles and have them handled.

I agree, my parents are my heroes as well. They are courageous, generous, informative, everything. I look up to them and am thankful for them everyday!

Too many to name. But one that comes to mind often is my mentor Joseph Edward Morris of the Clan Crawford. he taught me a lot and mostly that it is okay to hold to values many think outdated. I miss ye Doc.

When I was young it was the comic heros-mostly Superman or Captain Marvel. Then it was the Rock stars-mostly Kiss and Alice Cooper. Then my biggest hero Jesus but if I had to go with someone in more earthly form I would have to pick Keith Green, Father Stan Fortuna from New York or Father Jozo Zovko from Medjugorje.
