Not laughing! Mighty Mouse was my superhero too!
But also Mr. Peabody [and his Wayback Machine] was a superhero for education - I loved those segments đŸ™‚

Jane Goodall is someone I looked up to and continue to look up to. She's a marvelous human being who has lived a life of service work to do what has to be done. She never seems to give up, even at her current age and that is what being a superhero really is. Mother Theresa was that way too only her focus was children. The world really is what we make of it.

My dad was my superhero. I was adopted at the age of three by him. He was a single man and I had just lost both my parents. It had been set up that if something happened to my parents he would take care of me. He chose to adopt me rather than me being put in the foster care system. He didn't have too, but he did.

That's fantastic! Your dad is a model human being in this matter.
