Each year on April 28th, National Superhero Day honors superheroes, both real and fictional.

Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, Captain America, Iron Man, Hulk, and Spiderman are just some of the superheroes whose names we recognize. Star Wars, Star Trek,  Even though they are fictional, these superheroes are great role models for our children. They serve and protect while fighting evil. Your hero can come from another world or even time,if you fancy a certain Scottish Highlander from the 1700’s.

Our real-life superheroes may not have superpowers or wear capes, but they are also great role models who serve and protect while fighting evil.  Military personnel, police officers, firefighters, and teachers are just a few of the heroes who protect us on a daily basis.

Make sure first responders and medical personnel are included. As we have seen first hand in very recent times how hard they fight for us. Paramedics, nurses, Dr’s, and med-tech’s out there helping us beat Coronavirus.
