My hero is my grandmother, Sandi. She and my grandfather have owned their own bookstore for about 15 years and have never once given up on it. It is hard for her because she has to work every single day, except for Sundays because she goes to church. She is the hardest worker I have ever met in my whole life. Even when she had surgery on her foot, she still tried to work as much as possible. She's also very giving. Their bookstore doesn't bring in a lot of money but she always manages to give everyone in our family things they couldn't afford themselves. Just recently I found out that they are going to give up the bookstore, but I know that even though she won't be working in the bookstore, she'll find other ways to help people. I know that this will give her more time to help in church, which she loves more than anything. In my future I hope to make movies and I guarantee you that every one I make I will dedicate to her. As much as I love every single member of my family, no one can compare to her and everything she's accomplished in her life.
