My Hero

My hero is my father because he has always been there for me since day 1. I can come to him to talk about anything and receive great advice he is always directing me the right way in life and I feel like he has endless wisdom.

Connection Quote

"A hero is an ordinary individual who finds the strength to persevere and endure in spite of overwhelming obstacles." This quote applies to Beowulf because in the story Beowulf is nothing more than a courageous and strong human being he wasn't given any super powers or anything he was just brave enough to attempt to defeat whoever was in front of him. This also applies to my father because he's just an ordinary man to the public but is always persevering and pushing on when times get hard.
