Dogpool’s Definition of a Superhero: An individual, who despite his or her flaws, does what is needed to be done.
Mom- I’ve never personally lost anyone I deeply cared for. I’ve never raised a child. I’ve never suffered severe depression or ever contemplated suicide. These are all things that I cannot imagine. Cannot fathom. My mother was in love. I think I understand what love is…I would die for my brothers. I would die for my sister. I would die for my gf. My mother was in love and had her heart stripped away from her in an instant. No warning, no goodbye, no nothing. He died in a car accident.
Now…I never knew this until much later…but she thought of ending it all after his passing. But she didn’t. She decided my brother and I were worth it. Worth the struggle. Worth the pain of seeing her deceased husband in both of our faces. Worth the tears and the loneliness. She, a single mother now, raised two children while in a seemingly endless state of misery. I am here today because of her self-less attitude. I will die a happy/accomplished man if I manage to emulate even an ounce of her strength in my life. Daredevil is cool and all. Deadpool is awesome. But that my friends, that is a real superhero.
