Extraordinary People on the Heroes Who Inspire ThemBook - 2005
In this book, some of the brightest lights from around the globe share--in their own words--stories about the people who have been the greatest source of strength and inspiration to them. With essays by military heroes, political leaders, and Nobel Prize winners, sports heroes, firefighters, scientists, and schoolteachers, this collection gathers individuals who themselves are shining examples to tell us about the people who have illuminated their own lives. In a world hungry for good examples, My Hero reminds us that heroes come in all shapes and sizes. It also teaches us that the words and deeds of those who inspire us are as varied as the stars that illuminate the night.--From publisher description.
