Well, my hero is is a true connoisseur of the heart. One image that sticks in my mind is when one day we were riding on the bus. The driver made a stop and I thought it odd that someone was waiting to get in at the back entrance. Before i could realize what had happened Tony jumped out of his seat to guide the blind old woman to the front of the bus. He has incredible reaction time of the heart. This and Antonio is diagnosed with Bi-Polar,Schitzophrenia, and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, because he was molested by his older male neighbor for years. He left home when he was 13 because he had a child and had to start working mowing lawns to feed his baby. He.has been homeless for many years in his life, but has worked at many different menial jobs. What I commend him most for is going to Hurricane Katrina's worst hit areas and finding bodies floating in the water and bringing the dead bodies onto a boat. He has Courage Beauty and a tenacity that I have rarely seen in any other individual.
