April 28 is National Superhero Day. Established in 1995 by Marvel Comic Employees, this day is to honor all superheroes, real or fictional, who act as role models for so many of us.
When you think of a superhero or superheroine, you may think of the characters from comic books such as Wonder Woman, Ironman, Superman, Batman, and many more.
The definition of a superhero, according to Wikipedia, is a stock character that possesses abilities beyond those of ordinary people, who typically use his or her powers to help the world become a better place, or is dedicated to protecting the public and fighting crime.
This definition could carry over to real-life heroes. Those may include teachers, doctors, nurses, EMT workers, firefighters, policemen and policewomen, or just someone you look up to as a role model. National Superhero Day is all about celebrating the heroes that make us want to do good and inspire us to be better people.
If you do good, help others, and have a positive attitude, you can also be a superhero and inspire people around you.
