KCC Mr. Crider Summer Bridge July 19, 2013 My Hero It gets me through Last year, I went through the hardest things I 've ever been faced with in my life. I lost my grandpa and two months later I lost my aunt and soon after our home was foreclosed on. This left me thinking, " Is this the end of the beginning or the beginning of the end".

But this song taught me that I don 't have to be somebody I 'm not, I can just be myself and if others don 't accept me for that then they 're not worth my time.
