They Call Me A Hero - A Young Gay Man's Memoir

They Call Me A Hero: A Memoir of My Youth by Daniel Hernandez

When Daniel Hernandez Jr. 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 helped to save 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 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.

Daniel says, “Although I humbly deny the title of Hero I am honored to be able to share my story with people in the hope that it will inspire them to overcome whatever obstacles they may have in their life and devote themselves to the service of human kind.”
