As the President and Co-Founder of GrassROOTS Community Foundation, I have added a few words and call to action to the guide. My charge to parents and caregivers is a simple one: listen to your children, encourage them as well as promote their reading and literacy skills. Reading is a pathway to freedom and liberty. As caregivers it is our responsibility to develop the imagination of children so that they can dream, create and structure opportunities for freedom and equity.

Although many dead comic book characters are resurrected, some are not. Usually, characters associated with a major character's origin story (. Spider-Man's Uncle Ben , Doctor Abraham Erskine , Ho Yinsen , Abin Sur , or Batman's mother and father ), or those whose deaths significantly alter the development of a major character (. Gwen Stacy , or Karen Page ), remain dead. Additionally, although many stories continue to be written about them, certain period characters are typically presumed dead (at least from natural causes if nothing else) for purposes of contemporary status, even if their final fates are not depicted in a story (. Rawhide Kid and other characters active in the 19th century Wild West ). Sometimes a character remains dead simply because a successor has assumed an updated version of his or her costumed identity, making a return by the first generation character absurd (. Baron Zemo or Foolkiller ). Some dead characters have fallen out of relevance to modern audiences, which effectively prohibits their return (. certain characters from the Golden and Silver Age of Comic Books . Characters who no longer fit current standards of political correctness also often fall into this category.). Death is also a convienent method of closure for characters who can no longer be used due to licensing restrictions, copyright, or other issues of ownership. Lastly, from time to time, superheroes or other comics characters, judged by their creators to have served their dramatic purposes, remain dead because their stories are considered over.

When recently asked about the highlight of his career, Jon Bon Jovi gave an insightful and honest answer: "That answer's changed in the last 30 years. There was, y'know, the first time you're driving in your car and you hear your song on the radio, you wanna go fast and get pulled over so you can tell the cop, 'Look that's me!' (Laughs) To a point where you would turn it off, because, 'alright enough, already' -- to then, real true appreciation when you realize it wasn't one, or two, or five, or even 10 albums; there was a body of work. When you start talking about an honest to God body of work, then you realize how it's become, y'know, a patchwork of American pop culture and you're pretty proud of it. There's a lot of people that've sung those songs for a lot of years."
