Every single person is lookingfor their own private mascot. Someone to praise them when they do good and encourage them when things are looking bleek.
I know that I have fallen into this category, but I am not proud about it. Because I should know that i have a greater encouragement than any mascot could give me, and that is God himself.
Ps- The Purple Avenger was our mascot at Super Summer my purple school year (which was the summer after my Junior year in high school)
