Superhero: John Brooks

John Brooks, MD is  a Medical Epidemiologist with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Yep. He’s wicked smart.  He remembers the small print of a data set and can explain it in plain language.  Capeable just for the brain alone.  But John is truly caped for his heart of gold, profound patience, being willing to do the unseen but important work, and the bravery to show up and make things right.  Being connected with John in 2017 led to one of my personal highlights for the year. What a thrill to be in person with him and bestow and glittery cape.  Shine on, John.

About the Love Superhero Hall of Gratitude

“The plain fact is that the world does not need more successful people, but it does desperately need more peacemakers, healers, restorers, storytellers, and lovers of every kind. It needs people who live well in their places. It needs people of moral courage willing to join the fight to make the world habitable and humane.” David Orr

I deeply admire those who “live well in their places.” The ordinary and the unsung who offer to the world the very best parts of themselves without expectation.

This is a beautiful expression of love in her calm, persistent, generous manner – offering a ripple of change (a metamorphosis) to the world.

Inductees to the Love Superhero Hall of Gratitude are caped in recognition of their contributions to a love-filled world.
