The hero is my mom. She has been caring for my dad who has been sick for many years. Her commitment to her has been an example to many people. Just recently she has spent seven days sleeping on a chair by his hospital bed. My dad is 67 and she is 72. Although she has been through so much with my father's health, she has never complained and maintains a spirit of a true hero. She has made many sacrifices for my sisters and me throughout the years and continues to demonstrate her love and compassion for my dad and those around her. For this and many other reasons, I would like to nominate her as a hero.

This is a wonderful story, I'm only 15 and it has touched me, I'm going to a camp on Monday and I have to give a devotional about thankfulness, and I now have something to base it on, thank you.

I'm teaching a lesson to the children in my Sunday school class about gratitude and your story has given me inspiration. Thank you.

Friends are very important in our lives. All know how important having a friend is, so we must love her/him as our sister or brother.

we must keep this in our heart: 'don't remember the kindness you do for another, but never forget kindness done for you.'
