Summer 2014: THE hero
Definition: Hero |ˈhi(ə)rō| noun ( pl. -roes) "a person, typically a man, who is admired or idealized for courage, outstanding achievements, or noble qualities : a war hero."
"When the first Superman movie came out, I gave dozens of interviews to promote it. The most frequent question was: What is a hero? My answer was that a hero is someone who commits a courageous action without considering the consequences. Now my definition is completely different. I think a hero is an ordinary individual who finds the strength to persevere and endure in spite of overwhelming obstacles. They are the real heroes, and so are the families and friends who have stood by them." (Christopher Reeve)
The Style:Comic-book inspired hero.
Appearance: Light hair, cool skin tone and eye color.
The concept is"Flowers seen through a summer haze." Colors are soft, misty, and understated.
The story: 'Change your life, not just your clothes.'
One morning a man, by the name of Jacob. Woke up and went towards the window to open and look out at the flowers through a summer haze, while he was appreciating yet another day that the Lord has made. A thought inspired Jacob to go about his normal day, but to expect to do something different.
So Jacob removed himself from the window, and then went to his closet to decide on what to wear. Choosing from selection of everyday wear that he had a set pattern for everyday of the week, Jacob chose his weekend look and decided it was time to go shopping for something new.
After Jacob had a basic breakfast, he walked to his car and drove to the shopping district of the city that he lived in. When Jacob arrived, he got out of his car to walk around the shopping district to window shop for his new look.
Then suddenly the Jacob saw a look from across the street in a window that caught his eye, as he ran across the street and dodged traffic to get to the shop. Jacob stopped at the window, glazing at and probably even drooling over the outfit for a moment before he went into the shop.
Jacob then turned to enter the shop, as he did another man was leaving the shop embarrassed and discouraged because he didn't have enough money to buy the same outfit that Jacob was also going after. Jacob felt a bit sorry for the man, but continued to go into the clothing shop to purchase this outfit that had caught his attention.
The whole time while Jacob was in the store getting the outfit to purchasing it at the cash register, the poor man had stayed on his mind. Once the purchase had been made and the outfit had been bagged, Jacob walked out the shop to find the man sitting in front of the window where the outfit that he wanted was displayed.
Jacob paused and looked at the discouraged man and back at the outfit he had purchased in the bag with a sacrificial decision in thought to give up his time and what he had bought to the poor man. Jacob looked down inside his back as he opened it up to view the nice outfit he had bought, and than sat beside the poor man. With compassion, Jacob gave the outfit that he had bought for himself to this poor man and with tears in his eyes the poor man began to weep as he expressed how thankful he was for what Jacob had done.
Jacob could have got up and left it at that, but that's not what Jacob did. Jacob continued to sit right next to this poor man and asked him, "so what's your story?" While Jacob just sat next to the poor man after that, listening and being present with the poor man through whatever hardship he was going through.
After an hour of the poor man's story being told to Jacob as he listened, intently. Both had tears in their eyes, as Jacob placed his arm around the man to show love and comfort him. The time came when the poor man had to leave, as Jacob asked him "do you have a place to go?" The poor man replied, "yes and you was an answer to my prayer." The poor man smiled at Jacob and before he turned to walk away he said, "thank you as you have no idea what this means."
Jacob smiles back at the poor man, and looks down to pick himself off the ground to stand up. When he looks up where the poor man was standing, he found that he was gone. Jacob then starts to walk back to his car with a feeling like he had done something good and meaningful.
It was evening, when Jacob had pulled into the drive way to return home. But when Jacob got out of the car and started to make his way up to the front steps, he noticed something that was different. At the front door there was a rectangle-shaped gift box, propping the door open. Jacob picked up the box, and opened the door to go inside.
Sitting at the kitchen table, Jacob opened the rectangle-shaped box to see what was inside and what he pulled out was the outfit that he had bought but gave away to the poor man as someone had bought him the same outfit. Amazed, but clueless as to who had done such a thing. Jacob looked back inside the box to find a note that said, "Thank you for entertaining that stranger, as he now was able to go back home and what you have done has forever changed him. What you've done for the least you've done for me, please accept my love gift in return, signed your hero, Dad."
Jacob pulled the outfit close to his chest and began to cry, as he realized that he done something that brought change to someone's life to be changed himself. The End.
Wise Text:"Jesus came and told his disciples, “I have been given all authority in heaven and on earth. Therefore, go and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit. Teach these new disciples to obey all the commands I have given you. And be sure of this: I am with you always, even to the end of the age." (Matt. 28:16-20)
