As the new year begins, may we always remember that we don't always have to be the star of the show. We don't always have to show off our skills, flex our muscles, and ham it up for the cameras.
The sidekick holds up the hero, provides a sounding board for the hero, and makes sure the hero always looks good. The sidekick backs up the hero, gives technical support, and tweaks the gadgets. The sidekick is humble, while always remaining an important cog in the superhero's machine. Perhaps if we all support the people around us - our peers, our teachers, our students, our bosses, our employees, our friends, our family members - I believe our part of the world would exponentially improve. When we hold up their hands, applaud them, boost their spirits, and encourage them to improve, we do more than help them. In doing so, we have made the world better.
There's more than one way to save the world: we might be the hero who does amazing things, or we might be the sidekick who clears the way for the hero to do his job with ease. May we support each other at all times!
