The Canadian hero which inspires me the most is an individual
that was born several decades ago. This man is my hero because
of his qualities, like his creativity, responsibility, courage,
dependability and respect.
This man is very creative; he has a wild imagination! He can
be driving in his truck and sing show tunes in which he will
change all the words in the funniest ways just to make me laugh!
For example, one day my hero and I were driving down the road
listening to some music and this talented individual commented,
"Oh! I like this song!" He turned up the volume and
started singing the theme song from "The Addams Family".
He will say crazy things like "They're freaky and they're
geeky! They're crazy and they're lazy! They're all together spooky
the Addams Family!" Then after he is done singing, he will
make all sorts of different noises for the music that goes with
the song. But every time that this individual will sing a show
tune, the words will never be the same; they're always different.
This man can also come up all kinds of neat and wild ideas.
While this individual is at work, he thinks of many different
ways to keep himself entertained. One time when we were driving
to Calgary, I was amazed to hear my hero barking like a dog to
keep himself occupied. Some people may think these things are
a bit weird, but they are still very funny. When I need help
in doing homework, this individual will always comes up with
something extraordinary to help me out. I must admit that some
of his inventive ideas lead me to laugh more than I ever have
This wonderful man has lots of responsibility, like raising
his family and working to support them. He also has to make sure
that his two daughters and his only son have a bus pass or some
sort of transportation to get to and home from school. He has
to make sure that his kids are healthy. He always tells us to
eat healthy foods, and he wants his kids to drink lots of water.
One might say that we are just one of his biggest responsibilities.
There are a lot more responsibilities that this individual has,
concerning the mortgage, the heating bill, and other serious
things taken care of by adults.
This heroic person has courage because he is very brave, standing
up for himself and for his family and friends. He is also brave
because he is a truck driver. When he leaves town, he can run
into pretty much anything, such as a prairie tornado or a white-out
blizzard, and when he leaves town for work, he has to leave his
family behind for however long his trip is. Some of the most
special times with him are the summer hauls where I can accompany
him, or when he takes the whole family with him for a trip. However,
he does not do that too often because there is not enough room
in the truck for the whole family.
Another characteristic that my hero has is his dependability.
My hero is an individual that you can always count on. When he
makes a commitment, he will stick to what he said and will go
through with all the hard work that is involved. My hero is a
hard-working man! My hero also has lots of respect for all the
people that have respect for him. He is a really nice person
once you get to know him like I know him.
The Canadian hero that inspires me the most is my father,
Ronald Paul Latour. He was born July 13,1958. My father has numerous
heroic qualities like the five I have described. My father plays
a very important role in my life. I an very grateful that this
man is a part of my life because my father is truly the best
father in the world!
