Taking Cancer One Day at a Time
By Mira Becker
What is a Hero?
"When you hear the word 'hero,' you may think of Superman swooping in to save the day, firefighters running into the burning twin towers on 9/11, and a random stranger pushing a child out of the way of a car. These heroes risk their lives for others and spend their time trying to make the world a better place. However, a hero doesn’t have to be someone who goes above and beyond to improve the world around them. A hero is someone who inspires others to grow as a person, whether it be through their actions or their words" ("Who is a Hero?").
