A/N: This "story" (really just drabbles with a common theme) is based off of the song Hero by Superchick. I hope that this will change lives, minds, and prejudgments of people everywhere, so I will be posting this on multiple sites, so if you see it on Facebook, Deviantart, or somewhere else it is probably because I did so. DISCLAIMER: I do not own Naruto or the song. WARNING: Contains character deaths, suicide references, and just plain morbid thoughts.
No one talks to Gaara or plays with him. The youngest of the sand siblings has no friends; he is made fun of by the children in Sunakagure. You see that is how the children decide who's coolest, whoever can deal out the harshest insults is dubbed the coolest; but really, is his pain worth it? The children don't really hate him, they're just scared of the demon within, and they don't actually want him to die like his father wished him to. Would you do it just to fit in?
The tortured young kunichi spends his time isolated in his room, drawing away from his brother and sister who don't see his pain. He thinks of ways he could end his suffering, maybe he'll bring paper bombs to the ninja academy to bring his tormentors with him, or just lock himself in his room with his kunai.
Young Gaara is found dead in a bath of his own blood. A single kindness could have saved his life. You could have saved him. You could have been a hero. Heroes are made when you make a choice. You could be a hero, you might save a life. Heroes do what's right. You could join the fight for what's right.
No one sits with him, he doesn't fit in but we feel like we do when we make fun of him. 'Cause you want to belong, do you go along? 'Cause his pain is the price paid for you to belong. It's not like you hate him or want him to die. But maybe he goes home and thinks suicise. Or he comes back to school with a gun at his side. And a kindness from you might have saved his life. Heroes are made when you make a choice. You could be a hero. You could save a life. Heroes do what's right. You could join the fight for what's right.
A/N: Please review, and I'm sorry for all the Garra fan girls who wanted him to have a better ending but I wanted it to be the story of the song.
