My hero is my best friend Ryan or as we usually call him Ryan G. He is a language teacher teaching English to Korean students. Among his ideals is to help others the best he can and he is not even expecting a return to what he has done. I've once been touched by Ryan when I had an accident while I was crossing the highway. I was rushed to the hospital knowing that I needed a blood transfusion; upon knowing he undoubtedly offered to give his own and it saved my life. The second time was a truly amazing. One of his Korean exchange students named Rio was accidentally electrocuted by a high voltage electricity while he was walking in an unknown place. He suffered severe burns and a damage kidney and was bleeding profusely. Ryan instantly gave him one of his kidneys and blood to save Rio's life. It's amazing how a man is able to offer great feats of generosity and love. Now Rio and Ryan are more than best friends - they're brothers. Rio was ever thankful to Ryan for the love he offered unconditionally.
