all while wrapped in a cape made from your swaddling blanket

bestows unlimited strength and heroic powers upon you. 

“a hero is an ordinary individual who finds the strength

to persevere and endure in spite of overwhelming obstacles.”

RIP Senator John McCain

a maverick in the truest sense of the word

“I’ve tried to serve our country honorably. I’ve made mistakes, but I hope my love for America will be weighed favorably against them. I’ve often observed that I am the luckiest person on Earth. I feel that way even now, as I prepare for the end of my life. I’ve loved my life, all of it. I’ve had experiences, adventures, friendships, enough for 10 satisfying lives, and I am so thankful. Like most people, I have regrets. But I would not trade a day of my life in good or bad times for the best day of anybody else’s.”

-John McCain – from a letter he left to be read upon his death

“a hero is someone who understands the responsibility that comes with his freedom.” bob dylan
