On Superheroes...

As a child, I was awed by the Superfriends -- they lives they saved, the disasters they stopped, and the lessons they taught. DC's heroes were an indelible part of my childhood. As I grew up, my cartoon heroes became the subject of ridicule ("who wears underwear on the outside of their clothes?" they'd taunt) but I never stopped believing. Cynicism is easy, but idealism -- and faith -- in the face of adversity -- that's the hero's path. In the wake of the cowardly attack on Brussels, I choose to believe in the best of humanity. I believe we can come together to make the world a better, safer, stronger place for one another.

 

I believe that hope makes heroes of us all.
