Who is your hero(es). Please, briefly explain why the named person(s) is your hero.

In life, we meet people either in person, reading about them, watching them in TV or Internet and such. Irrespective of how we met this people, they impact our lives in such a great way that we desire to be like them or to learn 1 or 2 things from them. I bet we call this people who have influenced our lives/ or whom we admire so much our heroes.
Please take a minute and list your hero(es) and let the world know and celebrate their heroic action together

  • Mar 27 2013: Martian Manhunter because he was forced to change. His life had every chance to turn to dark, he decided to be a beacon of light for us all. He was one who LET me to decide to choose to as close to always tell the truth. This has caused problems for me, by the fact that not many can wrap their mind around this.
    Something else is that their is a sort of peer pressure to conform, just today my father asked why I turn a shopping cart around. To which I responded that It is funner and it causes me to be happier.
    In case you are wondering I said "let" since someone can only choose to take a path if at least for a second they thought that someone had walked down that path before.
