\”Is it worth risking your life over ten dollars, two credit cars, a hairbrush, and a lipstick.\” Don\’t do it.

There are times to take a stand.

Times when we must uphold principle.

Times when it is not okay to turn the other cheek.

But when it\’s \”over ten dollars, two credit cards, a hairbrush, and a lipstick,\” you let it go.

Please think about what is at stake. Let\’s use our energy to focus on building up the world around us with the strength of love… Not fighting for things that aren\’t really worth anything.


Thank you, Superman. The next time I am faced with a tough situation, I\’ll remember your words… \”Is is worth risking your life..\” or your time, energy, heart, or …


Superman is the sole survivor of the planet Krypton. Superman was born on Earth when the starcraft landed there. Jonathan and Martha Kent found the infant inside the vessel and brought him to their farm in Smallville, Kansas. Since he appeared entirely human, the Kents assumed that the baby was a victim of a cruel experiment. At this time the baby had no super powers. The Kents named the infant Clark and raised him as their own son.   

Clark initially used his powers covertly to help people and prevent or thwart disasters. Ultimately, he was forced to use his powers in public to prevent the crash of a NASA space-plane. Thereafter he and his foster parents devised a new costumed secret identity he would adopt when using his abilities in public. They called his new persona \”Superman,\” the name given him by Lois Lane, a reporter for the Metropolis Daily Planet who had been aboard the space-plane.

Superman lives by the traditional moral values instilled in him by his foster parents. Superman is an idealist, devoted to promoting \”truth, justice, and the American way,\” and has proved over and over that he is a true hero, capable of whatever bravery and self-sacrifice is necessary to right a wrong or save a life.
