115. I'm sorry, but I don't see what the problem is?
What's wrong with hoping to be able to use your "special power" to protect innocent life? To be frank, after I'd passed two first aid/CPR courses in one year, purchased a CPR mask and started paying attention to the location of AED's in public buildings, I had a sort of half-hope that I might be in the right place at the wrong time and keep someone suffering a medical emergency alive long enough for the EMTs to arrive, and I'm both disappointed and at the same time more than a little relieved that it never happened.

Look, while we don't all necessarily want to be heroes, there's damn few people who wouldn't relish the chance to leave their imprint on the world by making it a better place, even slightly. Dammit, that's a laudable desire, not a risible one!
