    In my own opinion, when you say super power it mean unique skills. Everyone has its own super power or skills that only them can do. E.g. painter. Not all people can paint well. Thus, it is their unique skill.

    This concept is inspiring and scary because with great power comes great responsibility. Cultivating the empathy and courage to use our superpowers in our everyday lives is a great feat that should be celebrated. And maybe through that celebration, we can inspire others to be super too.

  • medicinehorse own special super power is the ability to write internet comments which enhance YOUR super powers...('re welcome!...)...

    I did an amazing Sunday school class around the Jewish origins of super powers -- being that many of the original comic book artists were Jewish, and that there are many biblical "superheroes" and of course, the "original" Jewish super-hero of The Golem (which came out of a terrible need in the Ghetto).

    Kids were mesmerized. We then talked about Samson, and the need to be humble and to be grateful for your gifts and to use them for GOOD -- it was an amazing and transformative moment in the classroom. It was a key factor in my creating a winning relationship with the students. -- and it is an exercise that I want to repeat!

    Agreed! Love your project! I do Release YOUR Inner Superhero Workshops that focus on the fact that Every one's got Innate Super Powers, they often don't realize. The workshops are not only great FUN they are also fulfilling as people EMBRACE their Talents and make an Action Plan to share their gifts. YAY!

    i completely agree! i survived a near death experience 8 years ago, and have often said it gave me super powers! at first that was resilience i never knew i had, but since then i have become more empathetic, compassionate and forgiving than before. I am proud of my super powers; and believe we do all have them. never hide your superpowers - share them with the world and make the world a better place!

    We all have superpowers! It is an amazing feeling to jump onto a school playground every day and become a superhero to 300 kids. It is even more amazing to discover those kids' own superpowers.

    If you haven't heard Jill Vialet speak, you're missing out. She shared this at the National Conference for Volunteering and Service; It was powerful:
