This Week in Heroes: Abraham Lincoln

Hello everyone!

For our This Week In Heroes post, we have Abraham Lincoln. On April 14th, 1865, President Lincoln was assassinated by John Wilkes Booth in Ford’s Theatre. He died the next morning at 7:44am.

President Lincoln is viewed by many as one of the top three presidents, if not the best, that the United States has ever had. He abolished slavery and he promoted freedom and equality through his focus on the Declaration of Independence.

He was our nation’s first president to be assassinated while in office.

An 11 Year Old Hero

Hello everyone!

We have another story of a young hero, this time in Cleveland, Ohio. Michael Weir was just a normal 11 year old boy who’s fast actions saved all of his fellow students from serious injury or worse. He jumped behind the wheel of the bus while it flew uncontrollably down the road – downhill.

What could you do if this situation happened to you?

This Week in Heroes; Susan B. Anthony

We’re remembering a very important hero today. It’s March, which is women’smonth, and our hero was a prominent civil rights activist, specifically for women.susan-b-anthony-reading.png

Susan B. Anthony died this week way back in 1906; over 100 years ago this Thursday.

She played an extremely crucial role in securing women’s suffrage, or the right to vote, in the 19th century.
