Ever wonder what it takes to be a superhero? Not the fictional kind who fly, become invisible or shoot webs from their otherwise human wrist.
My son came to me today declaring he’s a superhero and I had to agree. Then he went a little further and said, sadly, but how can I fly? So then I proceeded in attempt of explaining that not all superheros fly or have magic carpets.
A three year old doesn’t yet understand that these aspects are more important than flying to me.
These, definitely not in any order, are all personalities I see that make me see a human as super and the right combination of all as a hero. You don’t have to pull someone out of a burning building, solve the equation needed to save the world or anything too elaborate. For you to save one person from a life of misery makes you a superhero in my eyes.
Who is your superhero and why?
