Heroes in the World

Extracts from this document...


´╗┐Heroes in my World Heroes fill the book Shoeless Joe by W.P. Kinsella. Everyone has a hero in this book. For some people, thier description of a hero was not what another person?s was. Ray Kinsella got many signals telling him to go find different people and help them. His first message was ?If you build it he will come.? Ray knew that this was referring to the greatest baseball player of all time, so he made a baseball field. After getting most of the field done, he got a message ?Ease his pain.? Immediately Ray knew this was referring to J.D. Salinger (Jerry) his old friend, and writer of The Catcher in the Rye. ...read more.

Just as Ray?s hero was his own father, and his father?s was Shoeless Joe Jackson, I also have a very important hero. My heroes are my parents. Heroes help or teach people all in different ways. Some people have heroes that they have never seen, while others have heroes that they live with every day.
