When people say the word "hero", what will you think? Do you have a hero in your heart? Maybe your hero is a famous singer, a movie star or a great-man. But my hero is around me, who gives me more love than others. She is my mother, the hero in my heart. My mother isn't great in the way of a famous singer or a movie star. She does nothing big, but what she does make others inferior. From her, I learn a lot.
When I was a baby, she taught me how to walk and how to speak. When I go to school, she helps me solve many problems. She also tells me be kind to others. When I do badly in study, she encourages me and tries to cheer me up. My mother is a teacher, and she is always busy with her work. When she corrects students' homework, she is always very serious. My mother is responsible to all of her students. She cares much about students study and life, and she tries her best to help students in need.
My mother is a loving mother, a qualified teacher, and a real hero in my heart.
Of all theChina's medalists, Liu Xiang is the hero of my heart. I will never forget the time when he broke through the finishing line first and won men's 110 meters hurdle final and got a gold metal in 2004 Athens Olympic Games. Since then, he became a sport star of my heart.
However, things turn bad when he quitted the list from the 110-meters hurdles owing to a foot injury in 2008BeijingOlympic Games. Some people started to blame him and questioned if Liu Xiang can really be a real star. But in my heart, I still believe that my hero will never give up. He not only won the gold metal but also broke the world record. It’s the pride ofChinaand it means that Asian people can also make some achievements in track and field. What’s more, his sportsmanship sets us a good example of human spirit of transcending oneself. As a sportsman, he never gives up, no matter what kind of trouble he comes across. Although he has a foot injury, he overcame it by suffering much pain instead of giving up.
In this summer's London Olympic Games, we saw him again. This time, he brought us more moving than regret. He stumbled to the finishing line with great pain. We can't blame him and he will always be my favorite athlete and my hero.
The other day the TV reported that a retired school math teacher, Beth Smith, has been volunteering for the past 20 years at a United Nation’s refugee camp in Thailand, helping kids who cannot afford to go to school learn math and English. I was deeply touched when watching the story, especially when the reporter asked Beth why she would spent all her time in a third world country volunteering, she replied, “By helping these kids, I feel I’m doing good for the society, therefore I feel happy.” Her answer made me think about the virtue of helping others, and I realize that she is a true hero in my heart.
