FC: The Hero's Book | By: James Fishback Period 2 10-23-12
1: My definition of a hero is someone that's always there, someone who will go against the status quo and be different. A hero is somebody that helps others, who is courageous, and brave. To me a hero would help someone no matter what they looked like, who they were, what they did; if you needed help then you got help. Some people don't believe there are any left, but each and every day there is someone who will go out of there way to help someone else. That is my definition of a hero.

3: Charles Woodson-is a football hero who has made dontations to Motts Children's Hospital in Ann Arbor, Michigan. I think that Charles Woodson is a hero on and off of the field. He has contributed two million dollars to C.S Motts Children's Hospital in Ann Arbor, MIchigan where he lived for three years and played for the University of Michigan. Not only does he contribute but he still goes back and visits the children in the hospital when he gets the chance.
