My father is without a doubt my hero and the person I've always aspired to be. He doesn't need a symbol or a cape. He's saved the lives of all of all his loved ones and even complete strangers by showing love, compassion, kindness, and consideration. He brings laughter and vibrant positivity to everyone he encounters. He has a heart of gold and gives unconditionally to each person he comes across. No matter what, he never lets anything get the best of him. He has taught me that you need to see the inherent good in others, even if they give you reason not to. His integrity, his strength, his passion, and his heart are infallible. It takes someone beyond ordinary to accomplish the things he does. He taught me all of the values and ideals that I'll need to navigate through life and how to be a hero to others. For that, there is no way I can ever truly pay him back except to make him proud and follow in his footsteps. My father is my hero, always has been, and always will be.
