"Who are your heroes? Are they on the screen? Do they play football and act real mean? Are they on TV or sing your favorite song? Are they politicians and tell us right from wrong?"
"My heroes are young, some with no hair. Some walk with a limp because of the brace they wear. Some have a shunt or a tube or two, some have an artificial leg they wear in their shoe."
"Some may look different than the rest of their peers, some do not talk much and tell you their fears. They have more courage than I can say, and they love life in a special way."
"They love everyday and the people they meet. And vow to the world, the big "C" they will defeat."
"When they are around, we all learn a thing or two, these are my heroes, for them there is nothing I would not do."
"They are my heroes, I know they are yours too!"
