The Hero Inside

If you were to walk down the street many new faces would pass on by. Most of the faces you may never see again, but inside each and every one of them is the ability of choice.

Some people spend their time on earth for good while others use it for evil, but inside everyone is the ability to be a hero.

A hero is usually the person who makes it to the front page of the newspaper and magazine, but many of those mainstream heroes do good deeds just noticed and gain popularity and attention.

Don’t get me wrong, many of them deserve the spotlight for their heroic deeds, but is the spotlight necessary?

I believe that the true heroic deeds are the ones that go unnoticed.

A simple helping hand with a small task or a smile to a stranger can make a world of difference. Just offering to help another or being polite can really shed some good in this world.

So next time your down or upset just think about the world around you. A world constantly trying to stay a float everyday without another killing or crime.

Just try to go out and do your own small part because you can be a hero even if it’s for a minute and who cares if the world isn’t watching.

Next time if the opportunity presents itself:

  • Go outside of your comfort zone
  • Make a difference
  • Take a chance

And help someone else because it may save make a difference in their life along with your own

Behind the Mask

When I say Superman, you think cape. When I say Batman, you think black suit. How about The Hulk? Giant, the green guy who is too big for his own good? Yup, you got it! Every superhero has style, and some methods are better than others. When you’re out there fighting crime, it’s pretty obvious that you need a fresh outfit to do so. The costume is just as important as the person inside of it.

Don’t take off your mask; it’s your identity. Spidey, no! :O

Ring, ring, ring and then screeching sound of the phone. Finally, you drag yourself out of bed, wipe your eyes and give a big morning stretch.  Slowly you pick up the phone and to your surprise it’s the Green Lantern! He said he wanted you to come to his birthday party.

Only superheroes received an invite, and everyone needs a costume. He says that you can pick out any outfit you want and only have a few hours to the party!

Immediately, you jump out of your couch, put on your socks and run to the closest Halloween store. Once you get there, you realize that you might have gone to the wrong place. Unless you want to dress up like a clown or a ghost, this isn’t the place for legit superhero costumes.

Finally, you return to your house, get out your sketchbook and begin to plan out your costume.

One of the coolest superhero suits ever! Look at that style and awesomeness!

Now the pencil is in your hand and your blanking out! It is a lot harder than it seemed at first, right?

Me personally, I would have to make sure my superhero costume was comfortable. Luckily, for The Hulk all, he wears are sweatpants while someone like Iron Man has to wear an annoying iron suit. I would make sure my outfit was comfy.

Next, it’s all about the mask. I would want a mask similar to the one that Wolverine from X-Men would wear. That mask was freaking awesome. I would take that mask,  make it black and add some blue pinstripes along the side. For my suit, I would want a suit that was similar to Batman, but I would want it to have some blue lines that ran down it to match the mask, preferably fresh neon ones that shined in the dark.

Last, but not least I would take whatever shoes The Flash has. That dude is fast as heck!  I would just hope  his shoes came in a size 10.5.

Now my suit is planned out, and I can save the world and drink some punch at the party!

Superpowers, I Want One!

Wouldn’t life be so much better if you had superpowers?

I mean… come on, the ability to fly, shoot lasers from your eyes or run at the speed of light would be pretty epic. What if one day you had the ability to chose one super power that you could have for the rest of your life?

So, you wake up and check your mail for your daily bills, and you see this mysterious letter. This is no any ordinary letter, it is in a blue envelope and stamped with a yellow S-shaped logo. You look at it from all angles just to make sure it’s safe and finally get the courage to open this mysterious letter. Reading through the letter, you can’t believe what you have just read. It was from Superman himself; he has selected you to be his new sidekick. He said that you could have one (any) superpower of your choice. He also stated that he is flying over to your house tomorrow to pick you up!

What are the chances that both of them happen to use their laser beams at the same time. Gosh!

Here it is, the big decision. You thought to choose what to eat for breakfast was a tough decision but how about this one. One super power that you can have for the rest of your life. If it were me, I would have to sit down and think about this one.

Let’s start with flying; this one would be a favorite choice of many. It would be cool, but there are already other things that fly, like planes and birds. I fear that I would hit into a bird on my way to beat down some evil villain. Next, on my list would be laser beams, the kind that Cyclops from X-Men has. Laser beams are pretty awesome and would be useful if you would have to fight some evil villains. What if an evil villain had the non-breakable metal suit? Never thought of that did you, exactly. I don’t think that would be the best choice.

I think I have it. The greatest super power of all-time and it is waiting for it wait for it… invisibility! That has to be the winner, right? You could walk through walls, sneak behind villains and attack them or even sneak into the White House to see what the president does on a day-to-day basis. Invisibility would be my choice. You could even go to the supermarket, switch on the invisibility mode, take the candy bar you wanted and head on out. Invisibility would not only help against fighting villains, but it would also help you in many other ways as well.

When it comes down to it and the choice of any super power to choose for life, give me my invisibility!
