Real life Superhero: Green Embers

So, I’m supposed to create a superhero and then make them save the day, but I can’t follow the rules twice in the same week or you all might start to expect that. So here I am breaking them again.

My superhero is Green Embers. In case you haven’t ever thought of it, Bradley’s handle “Green Embers” is a perfect superhero name, even better the “The Green lantern.” Brad doesn’t even need a silly “THE” to make him awesome. He just IS. Yet he doesn’t give himself enough credit for being awesome either.

Therefore this post is about Bradley being my hero and here are a few reasons why he is:

You may all feel free to add to this if you would like.

He never asks anyone for anything.

He is always willing to give.

He is open, honest about who he is and has hand the courage to share his story to help others in his situation.

He has already saved the day. Single-handedly he began the RCC and continues to offer a place for people who need encouragement and support to go.

What makes a superhero super? In my opinion it is the ability to protect the villagers, save the damsel and not even drop the Dr. pepper he was drinking in the process. Plus I still suspect he can shoot thunderbolts out of his arse.

So there you have it. Bradley is my superhero of choice.

Comments welcome.

  1. I couldn’t agree more! Yay! Green Embers will rescue the damsels in distress 🙂

  2. Oh wow, this is a pleasant surprise! I’m both blushing and so very humbled and just a little speechless. I was kind of needing this today, thank you Ionia! (Although you don’t strike me as a woman who needs a superhero…)

  3. Yes indeed. And he is not afraid of anything…not even afraid to show his sensitivity! I love that in a SuperHero 🙂

  4. I totally agree! Green Embers is awesome! I think he’s a Superhero for all the effort he’s making to be and stay healthy. He’s truly an inspiration.

  5. He never gives up when faced with a hill.

    He can write Dr. Who poems.

    He can kill Chuck Norris with a look if he chose to do so. (I want him to because I so hate the Chuck Norris stuff.)

  6. Nice tribute to a super hero
