A little girl made my day today. I was wearing my Salvation Army uniform at a McDonald’s with my Nanny and my Aunt. This little girl came up to me and asked if I was “an eagle”. I told her I was not, then she asked if I was a solider, obviously because I was wearing the uniform. I said yes and I told her that my Nanny and Aunt were soldiers as well and that my Nanny was even a Major (the title given to Salvation Army pastors after a certain amount of service).
The whole time she was playing with a Green Lantern toy, and as she was leaving the restaurant she called it “an eagle”. Her sister quickly rebuffed her and told her it was a superhero, but what I got from it is that this girl, because of my uniform, thought I was a SUPERHERO!
And a Green Lantern at that!
