My parents are my heroes. At a time when most of the population was prejudice towards black people, one of my father's friends was a black man he worked with. My dad was a truck driver and his friend was a mechanic. I remember going to his house with my parents and seeing my school picture on his wall along with all of his children's photos. This wonderful man told a story of a friend coming to his house. On seeing all of the photos, and a very "white" little girl among them, the friend asked, "Who is this white girl?" Our friend responded, "She is my daughter." From that day on I learned from my parents and their friends that prejudice has no place in your heart.
