…Welles has inspired me for what I do to show leadership. This year in the middle school is our time to show what how good at leaders we are for the younger kids. The reason we are the leaders now is because we are in eighth grade so we are the oldest in our middle school and for the elementary. We won’t really be the leaders next year but I will still show leadership in everything I do.

…Welles inspires me to be a better person, to be a better teacher, to be a better American, to be a better father, to be a better coach, to be more kind to people I don’t know, to stand up for others and on and on and on.

The Man in the Red Bandanna taught me that to be a hero you don’t need a cool costume or a cape you need to be kind and generous and selfless to people and Welles is all of those things, so he is a TRUE HERO! The Man in the Red Bandanna also taught me that I should be kind and generous to people even if YOU DON’T KNOW THEM!
