My Grandpa is a policeman. He has been my Grandpa for a long time. I love him.
He is my Everyday Hero because he has taught me to not fall into the water off a boat and he catches bad guys and takes them to jail.
The most biggest reason he’s my hero is that he helps me not fall down the stairs and bang up my legs and helps me do my homework.
My life would be miserable without him. I would have bruises all over my legs without him. I would fall off the boat and maybe drown without him.
Thank you, Grandpa. You help me in lots of ways.
Elise Hughes, Latah
