I’m Thankful For

I’m thankful for the Thanksgiving Day with family that is soon upon us as while looking longingly at the Thanksgiving Days of the past.

And I’m peeking hesitantly through my fingers-covered eyes at those Thanksgiving Days that are yet to be, may they  contain these my family members for as long as possible.

We’re Supposed To Be Better Than This

As Christians, as a modern society, as heck, Human Beings, we are supposed to be better than this. Or at least we like to pretend we are.  But are we? I don’t know man.

I came across this today and it pretty much says what I’m feeling in my heart, at least. We need to show those in need compassion at this time more than any, to demonstrate who we really are, not just who we profess to be.

New Star Wars The Force Awakens Trailer (Japanese)

I grew up with Star Wars. “A New Hope” came out the week I was born. I remember watching in the theater Han being frozen in Carbonite. I remember in the late 80s when it wasn’t so cool to like Star Wars anymore. But I liked it still anyways.

I remember being disappointed in the Prequels, not because of stuff like Jar Jar Binks, but because those films had no charm and seemed like they actively tried to make me hate the supposed protagonists of the films.

So, my jaded and cynical heart has been burned by Star Wars and has had trouble letting the new film back in.

But these new trailers have given me hope. It SEEMS like they’ve given some thought to character and writing. It SEEMS like they want me to care about these people on screen again.

This trailer just came out this morning. It is similar to the “3rd and final” trailer released in North America, but has some additional dialog and context.  I CANNOT wait.
