Sometimes a Superhero Cape is Needed

“The plain fact is that the world does not need more successful people, but it does desperately need more peacemakers, healers, restorers, storytellers, and lovers of every kind. It needs people who live well in their places. It needs people of moral courage willing to join the fight to make the world habitable and humane.” 
~ David Orr

Ever seen a superhero? I'm not talking Spiderman or Deadpool. Yes, I said Deadpool. He's kind of my favorite superhero. Don't judge me.

But actually I'm talking a superhero like the Walmart checkout clerk who pays the extra fifty-two cents for the little old lady with the empty change purse. That kind of awesome person deserves a superhero cape.

And Shanon Weber provides one. One of her missions in life is to recognize the unsung heroes in the world by awarding them a cape and inducting them into the Love Superhero Hall of Gratitude, which is something she made up. In this day of terrorism and hate, what an awesome way to make the world a happier place.

So here is my challenge to you . . . this weekend celebrate a superhero in your little corner of the realm. You don't have to go all out and "cape" them. Just smile and say, "Hey, you're awesome!"

Starting in a small way is still a start.

And don't forget there's still a contest for you to enter . . .

One would have to venture out in this sweltering heat first to do this deed....good thing I am forced to leave the coolness of my apartment several times a week to chauffeur the Butler to doctor appointments. I shall be on the lookout for these unsung 'heroes'.
