Today's WEGO Health Activist Writer's prompt is "Superpower Day. If you had a superpower – what would it be? How would you use it?"

And that's a toughie. I think I'll leave the leaping over tall building and being faster than a speeding bullet to Superman. And the spiderweb stuff to Spidey. But the problem is having to pick just one.

First off, I can't pick just one group of people to help and leave others in the dust. That's just too unfair.  So it has to be something that helps everyone. And if you look around, there are SO many problems in the world that need someone with a superpower to solve, it's hard to choose just one.

So, I think the superpower I would choose would be incredibly strong charisma. That means, the power to motivate people to work together and cooperate in peace in order to improve the world for everyone. To motivate people to limit and then reduce the population in order to solve our ecological problems. To motivate people to support and engage in scientific research in order to make chronic, incurable disease a thing of the past. To make it so that everyone has a decent start to life, and the opportunities that we Americans take for granted for a comfortable life. To get people to support human dignity at all stages of life, and to treat each other as family, so that no one is starving, or shivering on the cold streets of winter. And I could go on and on about it, but I won't! :-)

So now, I'm off to read the blogs of others who have answered this prompt -- maybe together, we can save the world?
