Line Break

From Felicity North, 11, in Washington Township, NJ:

My hero is my Aunt Julia. She is a nurse. During the pandemic, she’s been taking care of patients with COVID-19. She was not able to see her parents, nieces, and nephews for a long time because she chose to help others, selflessly.

From Raj Isiguzo, 10, in San Antonio, TX:

I am proud that my parents are both frontline workers. But at the same time, I am worried, because the hospitals are filling up again with people that have the coronavirus.

From Ellie Remsburg, 11, in West Grove, PA:

Mr. Josh, my neighbor, is my hero. He is a firefighter. Even though he has a chance of getting sick from going to so many houses, he still does it to help people. He is courageous and a hero.
