Ordinary That Does The Extraordinary
“Heroes are made by the paths they choose, not the powers they are graced with.”
Everyone in the world has a different opinion about what a hero is. They come in many shapes and sizes and have different characteristics, values, and beliefs. In my opinion, a hero is someone who is willing to put a hundred percent effort into helping you and the society they live in.
This person doesn’t have to be physically strong or muscular, he doesn’t even have to possess an impeccable character, high importance in society, or have a classic movie or sandwich named after them. When we think of a hero, what automatically comes to mind? To some it may be someone legendary. Others might think of a hero as someone of great strength or ability. However, my hero is just an ordinary person who went through a lot, yet still manages to help others and provide them with their needs. Although there was no one by his side while growing up to take care of him, he never gave up and he always believed that at the end of the day with hard work and determination he would stand on his feet and become a successful man who would help anyone who was living a harsh life, without asking anything in return. Fernando grew up as a poor orphan, yet now he is a successful man and he has become a hero to many including me.
“Parents can only give good advice or put them on the right paths, but the final forming of a person's character lies in their own hands.”
It was about two years ago when I first realized how much of a hero this man is.
He had not been wanted in his own original birth family and was ejected because of his appearance and his parent’s financial position.
Fernando grew up as an orphan not having anything to eat or anything to do and his only way of entertainment was watching them kids flying. Doing jumps and having races.
Watching them doing that made him forget about how hungry
