My father has always been a hero in my life. Ever since I can remember he always was my symbol of strength, success, and inspiration. He always pushed me to become something better and never failed to inspire someone. We avidly play recreational softball and everyone admires him for his humor, athleticism, and most importantly friendliness. He is there when anyone needs to talk and work situations out. He has taken in some of my cousin as his own children and taught them so many things. He shows people that the sky is the limit, but you make your own boundaries. Even though at times he struggles, he always has someone else's best interest at mind and heart. He taught me to be a strong individual and to accept nothing less than the best. I recently took in 3 foster children and at times I felt like I failed them and could no longer make it. He was there to offer advice and comfort me when I cried. He showed me that what I do in life doesn't matter if I don't influence anyone else to be better. He may not be a super hero or someone worldly known, but he is my hero whether he knows it or not. He shares his values with others hoping that everyone will become better individuals influencing the world one person at a time.
