Lastly, he is a great listener and even better advice giver. I know if I’m having a hard day or wondering what the answer is to something that I can always come to my grandpa for a pair of ears or even for some answers. He keeps your secrets safe, even if their embarrassingly funny, and makes you feel heard, or like you have a voice. He never interrupts, and always listens to what you have to say even if he might not agree with it.
One person’s hero might seem equivalent to an another ordinary person to another. My father might not be world famous, but to me he’s just as much of a hero to me than any one of those people. Every day he works to ensure sure that I have an opportunity to succeed in life, have a peaceful life, and be able to grow as a person.
My grandpa is the best grandpa ever , he teaches me stuff and always cheers me up when I'm sad . He always helps me when I don't know what I'm doing and no matter what we are doing doesn't matter if it's working or not we always have fun together and I know I don't see him a lot but when I do I cherish the moments I have with him . That is why my grandpa is my Michigan hero
What I admire most What I admire most about my great grandpa is that he was a hero to save a bunch of people but yet he is still my grandpa. I also like how he is kind and respectful to everyone he meets because he knows that you need to treat others how you want to be treated because if you don’t others will be mean to you. Another way I admire him is that he is helpful and tries to help as best as he can.
One person’s hero might seem just like another ordinary person to another. My father might not be world famous but to me he’s just as much much a hero to me then any one of those people. Everyday he works; to make sure that I have an opportunity to succeed in life, have a happy life, and be able to grow as a person.
When I think of a hero, I think of someone who is brave, strong, hardworking, trustworthy, and unselfish. Someone who can protect you and make life better; my dad has all of those qualities. My dad was raised by my grandma and had a very different life growing up compared to mine. He grew up where his brother now lives, outside of Brooks Oregon. He really liked riding 4-wheelers, motorcycles and skateboards when he was my age. He also really enjoyed drawing and learning. He graduated from McNary High School. After high school he went to college where he then had to drop out because of money reasons. Later on he went to college again and graduated with a degree in computers and engineering after I was born. Right after college he started working at Intel Corporation. After about 4 years he got a job at Lam Research where he works on wafers and chips for computers and
Sometimes I wonder what is a hero, is it a person who can fly and do amazing tricks, or is it a modern day soldier who puts his or her life on the line to protect what they love, or could it be a hard working parent or grandparent that is always willing to do anything thing for the people that they care for. And I always come to the conclusion that a hero can be anything because it is the beholders opinion. My abuelo or grandpa was born in Mexico and moved to the United States of America when he was only twelve. His real name is Zenon Cardenas and his early life was not easy, he moved from place to place with his parents on their tremendously low income and sometimes they barely had enough money to get food. Later, he was old enough to get a job in which he chose to be a construction worker, and that is where he learned how to make buildings. After awhile, he eventually settled down in Ionia, Michigan and built the house where him and my abuela or grandma currently lives now. That is the spot that he had my mom and her six siblings.
Heroes care not only for themselves, but for others. In the White House Funeral Sermon for Abraham Lincoln, “...not for himself only, not for us only, but for all people in all their coming generations till time shall be no more…” This means that President Lincoln took risks not to ensure his safety but to make sure that he would be known as a doer. Lincoln knew that what he was doing would revolutionize the way not only the way his generation would live but all future ones. This showed that he cared not only for himself but for people he would never get the pleasure of meeting. Back in World War II a true hero was born. One of the bloodiest battles of WWII, Hacksaw Ridge, was lucky to have Desmond Doss as a part of their medical team. He saved 75 people. Most in which others had left behind, for they thought that they weren’t saving. He cared about every single one making it back to base to be helped despite who was after him. Or even in the 9/11 boatlift many heroes stepped up to the plate. Vincent Ardolino, Captain of the Amberjack V,
My greatest and by far most kind, loving, empathetic, and influential hero is my loving Father, Randy Day. The reason I think of him in such a way is because he teaches some of the most valuable morals and life lessons to not only myself but to others by setting an example. Every day he goes around doing the best he possibly can while teaching others to do the same. It is because of his teachings that I am the person that I am today. I interviewed and i asked my hero of how he inspires and over all influences others and he stated that he taught through example and by showing his values and morals in life.
If I was ever told to describe my grandpa I would forsure describe him as determined, loving, and hilarious. He would always know what to say to make me feel better even if he didn’t know I was upset. Everytime I saw my grandpa he would always have
Some of the best examples of heroes are generic people who happened to have chosen to become a police officer, of a doctor, or firefighter, or even a public activist. These ordinary citizens save lives just as much as the classic comic book characters we think of when we hear the word ‘hero.’ However, the reality is that anyone can be a hero by standing up for what they believe in; some of the most famous heroes in history were just average people advocating for their beliefs to create a better tomorrow. Some examples of such influential people include Martin Luther King, Jr., Malala Yousafzai, Mahatma Gandhi, and Harriet Tubman. In fact, someone could be a hero to someone else just by doing a small favor, such as donating, doing community service, or just helping someone because they needed help. Even by doing the smallest actions, it is easy to become someone’s
There are many things that make my grandfather Thomas Dake a hero. He stepped into multiple family members shoes, caring enough to give them a house to live in during desperate times. He persisted while his daughter developing cancer, and helped her through it. Both of these happened after being drafted into the Vietnam War, which was only the start of his struggle. By going through and doing these things, Thomas Dake has shown various times that he is a
My great grandma has always been nice to me. No matter how sick she gets, she never stops doing things for other people. Every morning people come over for breakfast at her house. My great grandma cooks all the food for them. She is always going to church or praying to God. This is why my Great Grandma is my Michigan Hero.
I distinctly remember the weeknights at his house. Sitting upon his lap, walking down the street, getting pulled in my wagon through a park--these were things I loved doing with Grandpa. I was not just another person to him: I was the ultimate grandson, and I was special.
For many people, Grandpa is a storyteller, someone to go fishing with, and someone who has your back no matter what. The experience I had with my grandpa was a little different. I never got the opportunity to meet my great-grandfather Liston Grider, but he still somehow managed to have a huge impact on my life. Sometimes my mom would tell stories about him; happy memories from her childhood, sad ones that were painful for her to tell, and everything in between. I thought I had heard it all, but this past summer I learned something about my great grandpa that would perhaps impact my life forever. This story was not told by my mom like usual, but by someone who was a complete stranger to me. The lessons I learned would not be taught in a single day, but over the span of a month through a series of Facebook messages and letters in the mail. The words I read upon opening those messages and letters would change my life forever, permanently transform my beliefs, and show me what it truly means to be an American.
