My mom is directing this year's VBS at our church. This year's theme: HERO QUEST. She's going around asking everybody who their hero is. She wants examples of lots of different types of heroes...superheroes, sports heroes, musical heroes, historical heroes, etc.
My favorite superhero is, of course, Buffy.
Sports hero: Richie Farmer.
Musical hero: Dolly Parton.
Historical heroes: Too many to count. How would I pick? From what era? For what reasons? From what part of the world? The number of people who have lived and died working to make our world a better place...it's countless. They are all my heroes.
Specific hero: Gus Grissom, astronaut.
Hero on a pedestal: My grandfather.
My daughter, of course, wowed us when we asked her these questions. When asked, "Who do you most admire?", and "Who do you most want to be like?", my beautiful girl immediately said, "Jesus".
Hero above all.
