What is a herp

October 14, 2009
A hero is not just some one who does something amazing
It’s not just someone who Died for there country
Or not some one who saves life’s all the time things.
A Hero to me is A Single mother Taking care of her kids, and just surviving everyday
A Teenager just living life making the right chose
A drug addict walking in to rehab getting help for them not for someone else
A Friend who stays no matter what happens or how wrong you are
A hero maybe who no matter how hard they are being hit or pushed or beat down,
no matter how bad they are emotionally or physically
they stand up and keep going.
They push through the pain of life, love, kids, work, school, drugs, sports, parents, heartbreak, alcohol, which to me is a hero.
A person who isn’t just there, but is there living, breathing, and surviving.
