Superman, Ironman, Wonder Woman. Who doesn’t love a superhero? But what about the heroes that don’t have super-powers? The people that plunge into the raging river to save a child, or the one who helps another cross the road. The everyday hero? Those are the ones I love the most.
I met one in the most unexpected way. In a drawing. His name is Levie, he is long in the leg, short in the arm – like a Tyrannosaurus Rex. This inability to clap his hands when he’s happy and he knows it doesn’t stop Levie from being super. One of his super-powers is empathy. Don’t underestimate the power of empathy. He will sit with you when you are sad, listen to your heartbreaks and joys. He will pat you on the arm and just be there. We all need a hero like that or to be that hero right? Also, those ears are so big that they amplify sound enabling him to hear the subtleness behind the words…supersonic hearing. Cool.
If you haven’t noticed, he’s got lots of leg going on. I think they balance out the lack of business in the arm area. He does have one power that is pretty unique. That dude can jump! Watch him run and jump so high you would swear he was flying.
His creator decided that with all that leg action happening he had run out of room for a long torso. So he has a nice big red round belly for cuddling. I like that. His hair has been carefully and individually placed on his head, a lovely black yarn that results in a shaggy mop. Yes, I have repeatedly recommended he purchase a hairbrush for all that unruly hair, he smiled and shrugged his shoulders as if to say “it is what it is”.
He does have a habit of spending an awful lot of time in dangerous situations rescuing small animals from making silly choices like jumping down wells, or getting stuck in impossibly small pipes. You will eventually come across various YouTube videos showcasing his lack of self-preservation as he goes into rescue mode. His latest video scored him over 2 million views and shout-outs from a few famous YouTubers. Most notably his all-time crush IISuperwomanII, he dreams to one day meet her and her hilarious parents. Even everyday heroes have heroes.
