My Hero Is My Uncle Essay

© Maddie N. Miller

I once knew a man sweet and kind,
and I found that empty place in my heart I couldn't find.
He was a police officer nice and sweet.
He was so special he swept me off my feet.
Then one day he got shot,
but he had won the battle he had fought.
I was very sad he had gone.
But he had to do what he had done.
He helped people here and there,
he deserved the badge he would wear,
and this man who was so nice was my Uncle John who paid the price.
It was all over the news the next day everyone in my family just wasn't the same way.
My whole family was very sad.
Because he was killed in a drug bust gone bad.
He devoted his whole life to fighting drugs.
And for this he deserves more than a million hugs.
He is my hero that is true,
he has been my hero through and through.
I loved him with all my heart,
I knew he was a police officer from the start.

He always there when I am at the bottom of my game, always backing me up on decisions I make even though I do not usually chose the wisest path to take. He encourages me to stand up tall and get back on my own feet. My uncle has a huge impact on the way I become a person today. He has influenced my life by teaching me the lessons and showing me the right behaviors from wrong. No matter what I do and when I need advice on what to do, I can always count on my uncle. He has exerted real influence on me to change me. I know that much of what I am today is due to him. He has played a big role throughout my life.
My uncle is one of the main reasons why I am who I am today. Without him life would not be the same. From the day I was born he has been one of my favorite role models. His ethics and values taught me how to be a person and a lady. For instance every day from school he always asks me; "what homework I have,” and (he would know if I was lying about if I had homework because he knew I hated doing homework) "how was my day," "how was school," (even though he knew the answer to that one also) and kept me on my toes. He has been my backbone and I know without his stern and firm personality scolding me I would not be where I am today.
Whenever I was down or worried I would always confide in him for advice or help. If I needed school help he would be the one to go to. My mother was also there for me too but not like how he was. He was very
