I Am A Superhero II

The Continuing Adventures of SuperDad!!!

Being a superhero is often a hard thing to do. With a life to live just like everyone else it becomes a harder line to balance. However, nothing in this entire world is more worthy than being superdad. In my last article I told you why I am a superhero. There are many more facets that are yet to be discussed, so walk with me as I open your eyes to a world dominated by heroic acts.

Take a look around you. What do you see? When you turn on the T.V. all you hear about are tragic stories of murder, mayhem, and rampant crime. Or you hear about how celebrities are living their lives. Altogether this is helping you to live in a bubble. You see and hear only what the news allows you to know. You hear of wars, famine, and plague. But how often do you get to hear about the man that changed an old man’s tire, or the citizen that foiled a robbery? The answer is rarely.

Sometimes my alter ego takes over my superhero ego and I have to go away for awhile like I am now. In my absence people are doing heroic things all the time. Fly through the midnight skies with me and take a look at what I see.

First stop is Iraq. That is where I am and subsequently where our journey begins. As I take to flight I see a battle going on. It is over the northernmost city of Iraq, and the battle rages without cessation. I swoop in for a closer look. There is a group of infantrymen engaged in a firefight with Iraqi insurgents. The man on the left is about twenty yards from the man on the right. For no reason whatsoever the man on the right stands up—a shout—and the man on the left runs to the other man and tackles him while a bullet rips through his leg. Hero number one—saving the life of a fellow soldier, no one will ever read about that.

Next stop is over Italy, Rome to be exact. A group of young college students are walking home from the library. As they are about to walk into the street a stranger puts his arm up in front of the two about to hop into the street. As they are stopped by the man and look over at him in disgust a bus whizzes by. The bus would have slammed into them ending their evening. No need for a superhero tonight so I move on.

Next stop is London, England. In London there is a lot of excitement at midnight. One person is getting ready to end their days on Earth. Maybe someone told them their breath stinks or maybe they lost all their money on the stock market. I don’t know which but no one is around so it looks like I might need to swoop in to save the day. The man jumps from the top of a tall building in downtown London. In a flash I swoop in and catch the man before he crashes to the Earth in a huge crash. In my arms he lands, and I lower him the rest of the way to the ground.

Throughout the night I cruise the skies finding different people in different countries who need saving and many more that have their hero’s right next to them in their moment of crisis. Just by looking around you can see people that need help in some way or another. If you find yourself thinking they might need some help then go ahead and rise to the occasion and be a hero to someone. Helping your fellow man [by this I mean person] is the best way to become heroic.

In closing, you can make a difference in the world by helping someone at some point or another. Make the right choice next time you are faced with the opportunity.

It's always great hearing about stories of heroism. It's also good to hear that benevolence is alive and well. You provide a great service just by mentioning these stories. Thanks, Wesley.

You are welcome for the poem, and I do believe the Irish are some of the most creative people in the world. I am one quarter Irish and quarter Scottish, so I have the creativity from that line of ancestry. Being English isn't such a bad thing though. Take care.
