Birthday of Lois Lane!
So I tired to write another letter to Lois on her birthday, but every time I sat down to write it, I just started to cry, because of current comic situations… So I’m reposting one I did a while ago. (I was even crying rereading this)
My dearest Lois, where do I begin with wishing you a happy birthday? You have taught me so many great things, and what it means to really be a woman.
You have taught me the principal of never giving up, even if you’re pushed down by those bigger than you, to wake up and stand firm to pursue your dreams.
You have taught me that even if you are a horrible speller, words can still come to you (and people eventually get what you’re trying to say, even spell check).
You have taught me to accept people, if they are kind and good natured, no matter the their race, religion or beliefs… Even if they’re aliens from another planet. It could make the difference they need in their lives, to be everything they can be an more. You were the first to believe in Superman, and now, he is Earth’s champion.
You taught me the importance of not only having a sense of humour but also being sarcastic and snarky. I could not have made it this far without these very important tools.
You taught me the importance of setting rules and boundaries for yourself… And then not taking them too seriously, and occasionally breaking them.
You taught me the importance of being yourself, always. Because even though you may not see it, someone else (even the Man of Steel) could think you’re beautiful, perfect in all your flaws, and you’re amazing.
You taught me the importance of always expressing your opinion, because my views and thoughts matter.
You taught me the importance of always putting bullies in their place, because no one can make you feel inferior.
You taught me that even the shortest of women can stand in front of the greatest of men, with pride and dignity.
You taught me now, that even as the ruthlessness of the world tries to hide your glory and splendour, you still are important and will rise above the oppression. Because you are a powerful normal woman, and the greatest strength the greatest superhero has.
To Lois Joanne Lane, thank you for being my heroine. Thank you for being a normal gal in front of the worlds greatest superheroes and showing the world that normal, flawed women make a difference, and are truly amazing. Thank you for being perfect, within your imperfections. Thank you for being extraordinary in all your ordinary.
Happy Birthday, lots of love and many happy returns.
