They Call Me A Hero

A Memoir of My Youth
Hernandez, Daniel (Book - 2013 )
They Call Me A Hero

Item Details

Daniel Hernandez helped save the life of Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords, and his life experience is a source of true inspiration in this heartfelt memoir. "I don't consider myself a hero," says Daniel Hernandez. "I did what I thought anyone should have done. Heroes are people who spend a lifetime committed to helping others." When Daniel Hernandez was twenty years old, he was working as an intern for U.S. Representative Gabrielle Giffords. On January 8, 2011, during a "Congress on Your Corner" event, Giffords was shot. Daniel Hernandez's quick thinking saved Giffords's life until the paramedics arrived and took her to the hospital. Hernandez's bravery and heroism has been noted by many, including President Barack Obama. But while that may have been his most well-known moment in the spotlight, Daniel Hernandez, Jr., is a remarkable individual who has already accomplished much in his young life, and is working to achieve much more. This memoir explores Daniel's life, his character, and the traits that a young person needs to rise above adversity and become a hero like Daniel.
