"That is the decision all lovers must make -- whether their relationship will destroy...or heal the other. It's often the most difficult decision-- and, as love is not a constantly stable factor, it's one they'll have to make again and again." - BLACK PANTHER
Superheroes, I wouldn't normally post two quotes, taken from the same source, back-to-back, but being that it is Valentine's Day, and love is in the air, Black Panther's words provide such wisdom and perspective for love and relationship. While there should never be just one designated time that we choose to give love to those we care about (the same goes for times to recognize someone's greatness, celebrate a life, do community service or to give gifts), this quote sidesteps the sugar-coated, pink and red haze version of love that is normally equated with Valentine's Day, and provides a real, lasting truth about the power of love. Of all of our superpowers, love is the purest and the most capable of change. Love can build as easily and with as much strength as it can break and destroy.
Be conscious of your power to love and do it well and every single day!
The Citizen Superhero Project uses the superhero archetype as a vehicle for teaching and inspiring active and positive citizenship. It is the intent of CS to help individuals to embrace their powerful roles as citizens and to foster an understanding and appreciation of what their responsibilities are to their local and global communities.
