Superheroes in the Shadows


The past few articles I’ve posted on my Empath page dealt with psychic and emotional vampires both living and dead. This week’s post will be on the people who are everything these vampires are not. We all know a person like this. They are good, kind and compassionate. When you ask for their help, they give it. Their goodness is visible in the aura that surrounds them. They go about their lives doing good deeds, but since they are not braggarts, usually no one knows what miracles they have done.
These gentle souls could care less about fame or spotlights. They do good deeds because that is who they are. They are GOD’s angels spending this lifetime in human form. I know several people who fit this description, but I won’t embarrass them by bringing attention to them. What I will do instead is give them a title.

Hollywood via the comic books has given us many superheroes and we all love watching these films. Did you ever ask yourself why we go gaga over Superman, Batman or the Avengers? Yes, it would be wonderful if we could fly or stop a speeding train. Yes, it would be great to wear a special suit like Iron Man, which by the way is my favorite superhero, but I think the reason superheroes are so popular is because the human race is so vulnerable.
When I read the news about ISIS committing another atrocity, I find myself wishing that the Avengers would go there and beat the living shit out of them. But, in the end it is up to us to handle these ass wipes and, the United States Military, our only recourse. Our soldiers are our country’s version of the Avengers. They are America’s Superheroes. So why aren’t we taking better care of our veterans?
What is a superhero? Per Wikipedia, a superhero is: In modern popular fiction, a superhero (sometimes rendered super-hero or super hero) is a type of heroic character possessing extraordinary talents, supernatural phenomena, or superhuman powers and is dedicated to a moral goal or protecting the public. A female superhero is sometimes called a superheroine (also rendered super-heroine or super heroine). Fiction centered on such characters, especially in American comic books since the 1930s, is known as superhero fiction

Here is a truer and more accurate description of a superhero: A superhero is a person who steps up to the plate when the call for help is put out; a superhero is compassionate and caring. Unfortunately for these superheroes, the emotional vampires often take advantage of them. A superhero will complete the task dumped at their doorstep even if it becomes detrimental to their wellbeing. They will never abandon their charges. They do their miraculous deeds unseen, with only a handful of close friends even suspecting what is going on. These superheroes never receive as much as a thank you, but it doesn’t matter. They, in their quiet and unseen ways have made this world a better place.

We all know a person like this. I know of two in particular and, I am honored to be in their presence. I can truly say to people, “Yes, I believe that Superheroes do exist.”
