The definition of a hero in the dictionary is, "someone distinguished by exceptional courage, nobility and strength." I know this is going to sound cliche, but my mom is my hero. She takes care of me and my family, she goes to work and is usually happy. But the main reason why I idolize her as my hero is because she is determined to do the right thing. Even when she screws up, she admits that she did and tries to fix it. My mom has set goals for herself and she is determined to achieve them, even though they will take time and energy. She always makes me feel okay about myself, that I'm where I should be and I'm doing good. My mom may not stand on holy ground or have roses thrown at her feet, hearing thousands cheer for her but she's a hero in my eyes.
