My hero.

I will begin by telling you what a hero is to me. To me a hero is someone that is nice, caring, and loving. A hero doesn't have to be someone who has saved a life. To me, it's different.

My hero is Cullen, my brother.

He is a hero to me because he always reminds you to be thankful of what you have. He's also a hero because he helps people. He makes a difference. He makes a difference, and he has cerebral palsy and is blind.

Cullen makes people think twice about their actions. He makes people realize that every day is a miracle. That you don't always get what you want, but you should be thankful for the things that you do have. Some people don't even have anything or anyone to rely on.

Yes, a seven-year-old boy is my hero. He makes me think, and he inspires me every day to do what I do. He's also a hero because he helps people understand the importance of life and everything that we take for granted. He's also a role model because he inspires people with rough and tough lives by proving that even people like him can learn, talk, walk, and more.

I hope that gave you a clue as to why I chose Cullen as my role model. It's terrific having a brother with disabilities. And don't feel sorry; he's AWESOME just the way he is!
