Jesus is my Superhero

A survey of 8 to 14-year-olds in the U.K. found that Jesus most represents what it means to be a superhero, followed closely by Florence Nightingale and David Beckham. Kids are also more interested in fighting poverty and environmental issues than earning extra money or having their sports team win.

Those crazy kids, what can you do?

  1. Hi,
    I found you through Bloglines. I enjoyed reading about your NaNoWriMo experience. I recently learned about NaNoWriMo and am going for it in November. This past week I started a group over at Yahoo; I don’t know if you have time for it but you are most welcome.
    Would you mind my posting links to your blog and NaNoWriMo entries?
    Thanks!
    Happy Writing

  2. Florence Nightingale?!? (Sorry, I’ve always wanted to yell that and have it be in context.) Seriously, what 8 to 14-year-old knows who Florence is? Go up to 1000 kids in that demographic on the street, and I’d bet you 990 of them wouldn’t be able to say the word “nurse” in relation to her name. How’d she make it in there?

    Beckham’s another story, of course. I mean, he married Posh Spice. ;-)
