Real-Life Superpowers

I grew up with comics, so I like the idea of superpowers.

But what is a superpower, really? Is it something you can do than no one else can? Is it an ability that triggers awe and respect? Does it have to be destructive?

These days, I prefer to look at superpowers in another way: Not as something that could be done that’s fantastic, but fantastic because what was actually done.

Being kind, even though it’s not warranted.

Helping a stranger in need.

A willingness to do more than required, just to make things better.

People who choose to activate their generosity superpower are true heroes.
