Akeme Mallory (9th grade) dedicated his poem "What does it mean to be a Hero?" to the 2016 Human Rights Hero Awards recipients.
What does it mean to be a Hero?
There are a lot of hero’s in my life: coaches, teachers, my mother, people who do what’s right;
Someone who can change lives for the better
Someone who can bring a community together
Does great things people can remember forever
Not afraid to believe in something
Not afraid to show how they feel;
Not afraid to speak on what’s real
A hero feeds people with hopes and dreams, no matter how bad things might seem
A hero has the courage to stand up for what’s right
A hero fought for equality among Black and White.
A hero gives people a voice
Makes the right choice
A hero has a positive influence that surrounds them
Motivation and dedication – to be a hero is an inspiration.
A hero is someone who can speak their mind; doesn’t want to see anybody fall behind
A hero is someone who stays strong; someone who proves their doubters wrong.
You can be a hero by showing passion in what you do. You can be a hero by just being you.
