“With great power,
there must also come great responsibility.”

- Stan Lee (1922-2018),  Amazing Fantasy #15, 1962

These words from Stan Lee have been a part of my life for as long as I can remember, shaping how I raised my sons,  led my classes, and took responsibility for a provincial Health Department.


They are why I do what I do today, helping other Superheroes.

As a True Believer,

I recognize the value of my struggles,

and of my privilege, and I seek to use both

for the benefit of others.

Thank you, Stan

for being one of my greatest teachers!
