When thinking about this month’s hero, I wanted to pick someone who was not only well known but well liked, the type of hero who could be everything you needed. The charming, debonair boy next door who made your knees weak when he gave you his corky smile and make you laugh until you cried when he opened his mouth to speak. The man who made you drool when he took off his shirt after crashing through the window to save you, only to trip dramatically on the step and make you laugh again. He melts your heart with the passionate songs he sings to you and when he holds your children in his strong arms while he tickles them silly.
The first person that came to my mind was Will Smith. He’s sexy, adorable, funny, and still in love with his wife after all these years. Who wouldn’t want a hero like that?
He wasn't always an a-list actor. Back in the day, he was a rapper, Fresh Prince and his friend, DJ Jazzy Jeff with their hit song, Parents just don't understand. Like every other high-schooler at the time, I knew the words by heart. Even then, there was no mistaking his charisma and star quality. It was little wonder when Hollywood came knocking with his own sitcom, The Fresh Prince of Bel Air. From there he went on to movie stardom in Independence Day, and the rest as they say is history.
So, who is your dream hero? The man you know would be everything for you? (Other than your husband, of course. :-)
