How I Became a SuperHero
When I was younger, I wanted to do something with my life. I wanted to do something extraordinary. I asked God to give me something to do, something only I can do, something that will change the world, something so big, there is no way that I can do it myself, the only way I could possibly do it is if God was doing it through me. I asked God if He wanted me to be a SuperHero, and if He did, to just give me a sign, and I would. The song "Hero", by Skillet started to debue on the radio. I really liked the song, but though it was a fluke. Months later, my request forgotten by myself, I was looking for music videos on you tube. I found a video that did not belong at all, it was Swordkane's "Supervillain Challenge". I was intrigued, and watched it. I heard him mention someone named "Shadow Hare", and looked him up. I found out that there are heroes, and it was possible to be a hero. I didn't believe in heroes, I had the viewpoint that all human beings where, in a sense, evil. But I found out that I was wrong. I remembered what I had asked God a couple months after I took up the name "ShowStopper", and I know that finding out that there are real heroes was the sign that I was looking for.
