Everyone has a Hero, who is yours?

on September 4, 2012

This week in class we are reading about the true story titled, “The story of Lou Gehrig.”  Gehrig was a legendary baseball player in the early-mid 1900s.  Lou Gehrig played for the New York Yankees and was named “Most Valuable Player.”  Lou was also recognized for his fantastic sportsmanship by having his name placed in the famous “Hall of Fame.”  Many of his fans called him their ‘hero’ because of his courageous acts and modest personality.  He became very ill and later discovered he had a disease which affected his nervous system.  Lou Gehrig lost his battle and life at the young age of 37, Lou Gehrig’s legacy will live on forever and the number FOUR uniform will never be worn again by another New York Yankees player.

Now it’s YOUR turn!  We want to know who is your HERO in your life?  It can be someone in your family, a celebrity, an athlete, a friend, etc.  You need to explain why this person is your hero and how they have made an impact on your life. (The person in your life should motivate you to become a better person and inspire you.)

(Play the song, “Hero”)
