It’s a bird, it’s a plane, it’s Super Seniors!

As the Prestonsburg HealthCare parade float slowly moved down North Lake Drive, it sounded less like a parade and more like Comic Book Convention. That’s because the Prestonsburg HealthCare seniors were dressed as classic superheroes and villains from the pages of your favorite comic book with the likes of: Robin, Wonder Woman, Captain America, Miss America, Batgirl, and the crowd favorite Joker, it was a lineup that the Jenny Wiley festival crowd will never forget! As children, and often as adults, we love to idolize Superheroes. They stand for Truth, Justice and Freedom; something we all should strive for, although we don’t need to track down Batman, Superman, or even Captain America to find someone that stands and have stood for those same principles. We have those people around us every single day; our world would be a better place if every so often we put down the comic books and payed attention to the real superheroes in our lives; the Elders. They are the ones who truly deserve all the fanfare and attention we can give them. Go out of your way to make sure the Elders in your life know that they are the true Superheroes!
