Have you ever wanted to put on your red cape and be a super hero??? Hmm… I can’t think about that without thinking of Frankie Heck from the series “The Middle”. The first time I saw that pilot episode, I literally rolled on the floor laughing when I heard her say, “I put on my SPANX and went!” It’s just a pretty funny show!
Today is NATIONAL COMIC BOOK DAY!!! If ever we needed some comic relief – it’s now! What were the popular comic books when you were a kid? My husband likes Hagar the Horrible. I don’t think comic books are something that I just had to have as a kid, but once in a while I enjoyed reading a Super Man comic book. There’s just something about a tall, strong man wearing a red cape!
If that red cape gave me supernatural powers, I’d wear it, wouldn’t you? This world needs some super heroes for sure. Who do your kids and grandkids look up to ? There just are not any decent heroes out there these days. We need some positive influences for the kids – desperately.
We see our government officials doing anything they want whether it’s legal or not – with no fear of being held accountable. What does that teach the kids? We don’t have to feel shame for doing wrong anymore because nobody will punish us for doing the wrong thing. Wow – what a slippery slope!
The Bible clearly teaches the concept of right and wrong – good and bad. Where are all the positive influences for children?
God offers to every mind its choice between truth and repose. Take which you please — you can never have both. – Ralph Waldo Emerson
Now more than ever it’s up to the family of kids to be the hero and wear the red cape – show the morals and values that matter and will teach children how to travel the high road in life. We can no longer look outside our own gated community – well, unless we watch Veggie Tales or something. Videos are the new comic books, right?
I think most parents enjoy wearing the red cape to escape reality once in a while – and that’s not a bad thing. Your kids and grandkids need to see your super hero qualities once in a while. 😉
