I consider myself lucky. Not everyone is privileged enough to have someone to looks up to. Even with all the money in the world, you don’t have everything. A hero is someone considered a good deed doer, but mine is a U.S. Marine. My brother is one of the most inspirational people that I have ever met. He is always there for me when I need him and he is always at my defense. Eddie is someone that I can easily look up to because he is a hero to the nation along with every other military personal. Even when I was a toddler Ed was there for me because he taught me to walk and talk. I love him to pieces and couldn’t live without him. He is 9 years older than me but I can rarely tell the difference. My older brother is someone that I know I can trust, believe and love forever. I am lucky in the sense that I can look up to someone that is not a celebrity or rich and famous but an everyday, ordinary person.
