Eddy Trujillo was my great grandpa. He was a very brave man. He was born in Mexico. He fought in World War II. He was a family oriented person. He was very kind to everybody.

My grandpa is important to me because he made a lot of changes in people’s lives. He would play a lot of practical jokes on people to cheer them up, and help them forget about their worries. He made a lot of thinking puzzles that I play with right now. He has changed me and my family’s lives.

I learned how to be considerate of others. He taught me to be kind and listen to others. I use this today to make others happy. With this I can make people glad and they are kinder to others.

I hope to speak Spanish like my great grandfather. His life was spent with others I hope to do the same. My great grandfather was a great Hispanic in my eyes. I hope to do everything he did in my lifetime.
