My hero doesn't have superman's strength or the ability to fly. He has a different kind of strength: the strength to beat all odds, the ability to soar with courage. His name is Andrew. He was a premature baby and was told that he would not make it. He had heart surgery at the age of 13 and now has a clean heart. Literally. He has never once showed defeat. He has only ever shown strength and courage. He inspires me everyday, he shows me the kindness he has towards everyone, teaches me to be strong and to never let anyone tell me that I wont make it. He has a huge heart—bigger than most could ever imagine possible. He is definitely my hero.
Would you guess he has Down Syndrome? No? Well neither would the rest of the world. Andrew just graduated in June 2008 and will be 18 this fall. I know he is going to do great things. So watch out world—Andrew is coming!
