NATIONAL SUPERHERO DAY
Each year on April 28th, National Superhero Day honors superheroes, both real and fictional.
Batman, Superman, Captain America, Wonder Woman, Iron Man, Hulk, and Spiderman are just some of the superheroes whose names we recognize. Even though they are fictional, these superheroes are great role models for our children. They serve and protect while fighting evil.
Heroes are ordinary people who make themselves extraordinary. ~ Gerard Way
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.
