Who is your real-life hero, what did they do for you?

I could never narrow it down to one particular thing that made them my hero but i didn't fully appreciate all the little things until i was older.

My parents.

I'm almost left without the words to say. They are a direct reflection of who i am today in every positive way imaginable. I have a twin sister and a younger brother and the five of us are a complete unit. My parents worked hard to build such a strong relationship between us and I can't imagine my life any other way. We all get along so well but of course like any family we have our fights. I really could go on and on about them and how much i respect and appreciate them for being so understanding, honest, welcoming, loving and so on and so on but we'd be here all night. Man I love them.
