The definition of a hero is someone who is always being positive. Most people think of think of a hero as Superman or Batman, but that's not the true definition of a hero. I actually have a couple of heroes in my life but when I think hero, I think my Grandpa. When I think of Hero I think Kind, Helpful, Nice and many many more. All of these words describe my grandpa, and this is why my grandpa is my Michigan hero.
My grandpa has been my Michigan hero my entire life. My grandpa is more that Superman or Batman to me, because he can do almost anything. Sadly, my grandpa should be dead right now. My grandpa was hospitalized in January 2003, and I was born in January 2003. My grandpa was in the hospital because he had stage 4 cancer. The Hospital told him he would not live 30 more days, So he told them he wanted to go home if he had no chance at living. Surprisingly, I got out of the hospital that same week my grandpa got released. So my grandpa that never thought he would get to see me or hold me, might have a chance to before he would die.

    Everyone has a different definition of a hero. Mine is a person who has impacted my life, or lives in general. They are selfless and genuine people who care about others more than themselves.

People like a war veteran, a public figure, or an everyday person are all people who fit my definition of a hero. Irena Sendler, Tyler Joseph, and my mom are prime examples…
