  • Final Decision on Hero

    Final Decision on Hero
    While working in the library, I finally chose my hero. After looking through Mrs. Simmon's Good Reads list, I narrowed down my list even further. I ended up choosing Bill Clinton because of his political achievments in office and strong character. The errors and mistakes he has made in his life I believe, would be a conversation point in my essay and would further justify his human nature. Also, I was interested to learn more about the man that lead our nation during my early life.
