As part of our RE topic we having been thinking about the lives of heroes .
Who’s your hero? Why are they a hero and how does their story inspire you?
Father Damien was a priest who worked with very sick people in Hawaii. Despite the danger of catching leprosy he looked after the sick and put their needs first. I was named after him and I find his story really inspiring. He did everything he could to help others, a real hero in my book.
