Everyday NhanSense: Each day, I will blog about something that comes to mind. My goal is to practice writing about my hobbies, my interests, my opinions and so forth.
Day 5’s Topic: Heroes and villains.
I have always loved superhero stuff, ever since I was a kid. There is something about seeing an individual/team of people do great things in the name of “justice,” whatever that really means. Maybe it’s the rad costumes or perhaps it’s my inner child always thinking that “being good” is what people are meant to be throughout their lives.
Some of my favorite superheroes are common ones such as Batman, Spider-Man and whatnot, with some obscure characters like Huntress being in the mix.
But beyond the capes and superhero emblems, I think it’s the notion of good versus evil that fascinates me so. Constantly, we are all challenged each day to be our own makeshift hero or villain. I believe everyone has to choose between both respective sides on a daily basis.
For instance, if someone were to collapse on the ground, the “good” thing to do would be to go over and help them out, right? Conversely, let’s say you instead go over and kick the person a few times while they are literally down, you take their wallet from the pocket and then scram. Is this act “evil” or are you just a rotten person?
Another example – you’re in the supermarket. You can go buy this bag of chips on the shelf with money or you can somehow slip it into your backpack and walk outside with it. Either way, you’ll end up with a bag of chips in your possession afterward, but even this simple situation has a lot more to it.
