Who's Your Hero?

Since yesterday was President's Day, when we honor those two noble, honest Presidents of the past George Washington and Abe Lincoln, I thought I'd ask you: Which president do you feel is most deserving of "hero" status? 

And after that, who in your past has influenced you the most for good, that you'd like to name a day for? 

I have loved three presidents, all heroes in my heart: Abe Lincoln, Gerald Ford, and Ronald Reagan. 

As to heroes who personally influenced me, I’d like to build a memorial to my second grade Sunday school teacher, a spiritual hero. This twenty-something college student willingly gave up dating/TV/goofing off time to study God’s word so she could teach it to a bunch of squirmy-pants seven-year-olds in a Los Angeles church attic classroom. 
She painted a picture of Jesus in my heart that caused me to fall in love with Him, and surrender my heart and life to Him. I don’t remember her name; she may not still be on this earth. But she is my hero, who deserves the applause of Heaven for leading this little redhead into the Kingdom of God. 

What about YOU?
