Mr. Shirillow has benefited our community by keeping us safe. As a police officer, he makes sure that dangerous people are behind bars and earns respect by being serious on the job. Al inspires me because he goes out of his way for others and always makes me smile. To me Al is a superhero. I want to be as kind and hard-working as Al when I grow up.
