"In Brightest Day..."

When my oldest son (18 now) was a wee 10 years old we (being the nerds we are) had a conversation about super heroes. Namely, who would he want to be. His answer, a Green Lantern. When I asked him why, I was blown away by his answer. He said, "Because Dad, you have to earn the right and be chosen to be a Green Lantern. Most heroes get their powers because they were bitten by a radioactive bug, are born with them, or come from another planet. But to be a Green Lantern you have to be chosen. And to be chosen you have to not only be a good person but you have to have the ability to overcome fear." From the mouths of babes...
My son went on to EARN his Eagle Scout rank in the Boy Scouts of America.
