Today: A message of hope.  Even if someone is born "evil" or born "good", they can choose who they want to be.  I think sometimes we forget the power of choice.  We forget that with each step we take, literally speaking, we are choosing a destination.  And much like, one foot in front of another, we can decide what direction our life is going to take.
     Hard Road Example.  We know that the Iron Giant was programmed to be a weapon, this is encoded inside of him, but he rose above this programming and became a "Super-Man"  ...  This movie made me burst into tears...actually every time I burst into tears...but good tears.  I love movies like this.  Another example, If you haven't watched The Color Purple. *Spoiler*...At the end of the movie, the character Albert, played by Danny Glover is sitting alone.  His father comes to visit, and again spouts out he needs a woman.  In this moment Danny Glover realizes that his programming is what has made him alone...and he pushes his father to leave...despite years and years and years of believing his programming was the only way.  Next comes the letter about Whoopi Goldberg's character, Celie Johnson's children are stuck in Africa.  And this is it...This is Danny Glover's moment to be Super-Man.  He takes the letter, gets his money, proves the children are Americans and they come home.
     WOW...Just thinking about Celie's children arriving at her door step.  Hearing in my head: "Momma-Momma" as the man hugs her makes me tear up....And it is in this moment...I understood something magical.   What? And How?   I asked: Why, Why did Albert (Danny Glover) do that?  ... My heart burst open and I could see that the answer was: Because he chose to do it.  In that moment, he chose to do the right thing, despite being taught something completely different.
     Despite what they TELL YOU....You ultimately are in charge.  You can wake up and decide to be the Light and not the dark.  It will be hard, especially if you have been taught that all people are either: A Liar, A Thief, or a Whore. ... Especially if you believe it.  But look around...Try to find even a glimmer of humanity, (as in sharing, caring, and love) and once you find it...you can start to dispel this myth. 
     So what will it be:  Super-Man or Weapon?   (When I say Super-Man, I don't mean sacrifice until it hurts, no, that means: Love yourself, Then love your family, and once you have mastered these...maybe then go out into the world and make it a better place: But be mindful...Never FORCE your ideas and thoughts and especially your actions on another...even if you think it is:For their own good)
     I choose to be Super-Man....Won't you join me. :)  That's all I have, Thanks for visiting my website.

Elicia Clegg, every time I read one of your short or long stories, comments, etc. the concept I have about you as a person grows more and more. If you don't mind me saying this, I love you and admire you because I think you are old fashioned and you have all of those great morals and concepts of the old USA, the one I became to love when I was a child back in the 60s.
