Interesting about driving in China...
Shared by my Brooklyn NY pal, Vivia....
Do you want to drive in China???

 
You are looking at is a photo from a drone that flew near the border with Hong Kong. It snapped a photo on the Beijing–Hong Kong–Macau Expressway. You are looking at 50-lanes that are filled with traffic to the brim.

National Superhero Day is observed annually on April 28.  This is a day to honor superheroes, both real and fictional.
Batman, Superman, Captain America, Wonder Woman, Iron Man, Hulk and Spiderman are just some of the superheroes whose names we recognize.  Even though they are fictional, these superheroes are great role models for our children.  They serve and protect while fighting evil.
Our real-life superheroes may not have super powers or wear capes, but they are also great role models who serve and protect while fighting evil.  Military personnel, police officers and firefighters are just a few of the heroes who protect us on a daily basis. 
HOW TO OBSERVE
Take your favorite superhero to lunch and say thank you for all they do. 
HISTORY
National Superhero Day was created in 1995 by Marvel Comics employees.
