      • Jason (reading his essay aloud in the assembly hall to a large audience): I, Jason Lochner, am the luckiest kid on earth. I don't just read about American heroes, or see them in film clips, I live with one. If a hero is defined by his feats of courage and his willingness to sacrifice, then the greatest American hero of all is my foster father.
