A hero is not just a person who saves lives; a hero can be anyone; a parent, a survivor or any inspirational figure. Children Times’ Martin Bishop asked a few kids about their heroes.
My mom is my hero because she is always working. She works hard to make sure I get nice things.
I have two heroes, one is my neighbour - she helps me cross the road and takes me to school. The other is President Paul Kagame because he loves young children.
I look up to President Barack Obama because he is the first black president of the United States of America and also President Paul Kagame. They are my heroes because they love the people they lead and their families.
My hero is Doctor Alex Nkurikiye because he saved my life after I was involved an accident. He even became my friend and still buys me gifts.
My hero is my uncle - he is a good soldier. He is my hero because he puts his life in jeopardy for the whole nation. He was shot but didn’t die.
My hero is my brother, Fabrice. He is always there for me and helps me with my homework. He makes me laugh too.
President Paul Kagame is my hero because he has done many good things for this country. I want to be like him when I grow up.

My parents are my heroes because when I fell off my bike and broke my arm, they were there to help me and took me to the hospital. They are the best parents in the world.
