WHO IS YOUR HERO?

Who’s your hero?

We’ve all grown up with people that inspire us. Those we look up to. Could it be a parent? A friend? A sports figure? An actor? I thought back to when I was a kid. The person who first popped into my mind was Ivan Lendl. For those of you who don’t follow the sport, he’s a former Word No. 1 professional tennis player.  

I grew up playing tennis and it even helped pay my way through college. Ivan Lendl was the first “hero-type” I remember really impacting me, though. He was calm, not known for having a massive temper flaring every five minutes. Well and the fact that had some serious talent didn’t hurt either, huh?  I mean EIGHT grand slam titles? HOLY MOLY.

A few years ago now, I stumbled across this group, Superchick, and I got a new idea of what or who a hero could be. It’s a sweet song, but listen to the words, those are the real kicker…..

 

So, who’s your hero?  I’m curious.

  1. My heroes were always singers, actors, and theater people as a child, along with writers–Laura Ingalls Wilder and Anne of Green Gables. I followed the singing and writing thing but dropped the ball on the theater. Thank goodness, I’m a horrible actress. I can fool no one! 🙂

    I like this song too, but especially love Superchick’s “Beauty From Pain”.

    Hope you’re well and writing on!
