This iReport is part of an assignment:
What makes your Father's Day special?
What makes a dad a hero?
A dad that’s a hero is hard to find. He doesn’t see himself as a hero, and so, he’s never boastful.
A dad that’s a hero leads by example. He doesn’t impose rules or beliefs. He lets you find your own and is supportive of what you’ve found.
A dad that’s a hero puts his family first because he genuinely wants to, not because he feels obligated to.
A dad that’s a hero is not perfect, and he doesn’t aim to be.
A dad that’s a hero knows when it’s okay to push, and he does so lovingly to teach a lesson.
A dad that’s a hero is unconditionally supportive. He listens unconditionally and loves unconditionally.
A dad that’s a hero let’s you venture off to explore, keeping watch closely enough to know you’re safe, but loosening the reigns enough to let you discover yourself.
A dad that’s a hero accepts your flaws and embraces exactly who, and what, you are.
A dad that’s a hero shows you anything is possible, and teaches you that the only boundaries in life are those that you set.
A dad that’s a hero encourages you to push those boundaries and to never settle for what’s average.
A dad that’s a hero is someone you aspire to be just like and someone you hope you can give back to someday, just as much as they’ve given to you.
My dad is my hero because he’s all of these things and a million times more.
