On Oct. 8, 1991, in Arlington, Texas, the Wolf family was forever changed. Their strong and fierce little PJ rode his bike across the street to ask his best friend to play – but without a helmet that day. He was hit by a car and was rushed to the hospital. The next few days were grueling for the family, but in the end, PJ did not survive his injuries.

When you think of superheroes, you think of someone who wears a costume and uses their amazing powers to save lives. The term superhero is used to invoke heroism and selfless courage for those in need. In movies, you see Superman flying from the sky to rescue someone who is in peril.
