28 April – Superhero Day

 

Superhero Day - Elizabeth Place

A hero can be anyone – even a man doing something as simple and reassuring as putting a coat around a little boy’s shoulders to let him know that the world hadn’t ended.~ Ben Affleck

When we think of Superheroes, it’s all too common that what comes to mind is a man or woman in a tight-spandex suit that is often brightly coloured, garishly patterned, and inevitably has the underwear on the outside. But there are other kinds of a superheroes in the world: those that wear Fireman’s Uniforms or Police Uniforms, those that drive ambulances or Medivac Helicopters, and sometimes they just wear the clothes of mother or father hard at work. Superhero Day is there to remind us that superheroes can come in any shape, size, or colour, and being one is more about valour of the heart than super-powers.
