Charlie sat down with his friends next to Lorraine. The high school was having an assembly on heroes, for some reason. He really didn't want to be there but Sarah, his only sister to have him wrapped around her pinky finger, had insisted he go. The students quieted down as the principal walked onto the stage and picked up the microphone to begin.

About an hour later, most of the school was almost asleep when the principal picked up the microphone again.

"Our last presenter is a guest. She is the middle school's most vocally talented student and was sent over to end the assembly.

Sarah walked nervously onto the stage and Charlie and Lorraine sat up straight in their seats, waking their friends up.

"I would like to dedicate this song to my older brother Charlie Baker," she said, cueing the music to start.

You know I try to be
All that I can
But there's a part of me
I still don't understand

Why do I only see
What I don't have
When my reality
Its things are not that bad

Your faith has shown me that

When my world goes crazy
You won't let go
When the ground gets shaky
You give me hope
When I try to push you away
You never move, yeah

Now when I start doubting and
You help me see
There's a strength, and a mind, and a power in me
Oh believe me thereain't nothing I can't do
My hero is you, yeah
My hero is you

I never saw the way
You sacrificed
Who knew the price you paid
How can I make it right
I know I've gotta try

When my world goes crazy
You won't let go
When the ground gets shaky
You give me hope
When I try to push you away
You never move, yeah

Now when I start doubting and
You help me see
There's a strength, and a mind, and a power in me
You believe there ain't nothing I can't do
My hero is you, yeah
My hero is you

And I hope that you can see
You're everything that I wanna be, ooh

When my world goes crazy
You won't let go
When the ground gets shaky
You give me hope
When I try to push you away
You never move, yeah

Now when I start doubting and
You help me see
There's a strength, and a mind, and a power in me
Oh believe me there ain't nothing I can't do
My hero is you, yeah
My hero is you

My hero is you

Sarah walked off the stage as the audience politely clapped. Charlie and Lorraine shared a look and Lorraine laughed quietly when she saw the tears in her big brother's eyes. He grabbed his backpack and walked down the row and to the stage door. Lorraine smiled after him and his friends watched him with confused expressions. Sure, he was her older brother, but did he really need to run off like that.

Charlie ran up to Sarah and hugged her tightly.

"That was beautiful, Sarah." Charlie said.

"Thanks, Charlie." Sarah responded, smiling.

She never told him he was her hero. He could never be prouder than he was to be her older brother than he was at that moment.
