People always talk about their heroes. I've seen this everywhere... TV, books, magazines, newspapers, high school assignments, college assignments, and wherever else.

What happens to those of us who have no heroes?

I mean, I have people I admire and respect for their work, but I have never in my life had a hero. Not after the point of being 7 or 8 and imitating Sheera.

Whenever anyone asked me who my hero was, I would always tell them that I am my own hero. Because I don't want to be somebody else. I want to be me, strong and beautiful and powerful, and that's what I want.

Granted I don't always feel strong and beautiful and powerful, but who cares? I'm sure "heroes" have their bad days, too.

The point is, why does everyone have to have a hero?

Why can't they just gather their own courage instead of borrowing it from someone else?
