my HERO is my dad. he just is. this is an old layout i framed for him one father's day. it was right after he got custody of my brothers. i was a senior in high school. he sacrificed a lot to raise us. he has always been there and i am 100% confident that he always will. he will always be my hero for that.
however, i MUST say that my dad has always been larger than life. he is a decorated war hero, green beret captain. he has been in books and magazines. he was a secret service agent for some 22 years. he protected presidents, vice presidents, and dignitaries. i've seen him on tv with presidents. it was pretty cool. so not only is he my hero, he has been others' as well.

To look at the face of your daughter it doesn't look like she could ever do things as naughty as writing on walls!
