This wall is very important because it displays the names of heroes of all shapes, sizes, ethnicities, ages and sexes. Those who have their names placed on this wall have shown courage, strength, compassion, wisdom, kindness, sincerity, honesty and so many other qualities.
Some of them are famous and some of them are not. The people on my Wall of Heroes are simple people like Kris Doubledee who took the shoes off his feet and gave them to a homeless man. They are people like Wayne Isaacs who spent his days playing the harp for patients, their loved ones and staff at hospitals in order to sooth their spirits. They are also famous people like Anderson Cooper who had the courage to speak out and embrace his difference. They are people like Stash Serafin, the blind figure skater who exemplifies courage.
Each and every name on this wall stands for someone who has made a difference because he or she cared enough to do something. We want to add more and more heroes because children of all ages need to see that kind, honest and courageous efforts are respected and honored.
This wall is about heroes who are trying to lower the numbers of bullying events but this wall is also about people who just live with kindness and compassion. This wall is about people who serve as examples to everyone by the way they live their lives. This wall is about those who stand up to be heard and have the courage to make a difference! Children of all ages need heroes to look up to. That is why this Hero Wall was created.
