I’m a comic book geek

Today I watched the latest installment of the “X-Men” franchise, “Dark Phoenix.” I loved it. Not just for the great action, but also for the inspiration the X-Men, and in reality, ALL the superhero movies and stories bring us. I take a lot of ribbing for being a comic book geek. But if you look beyond the spandex and superpowers, you see people struggling to overcome issues with themselves and others. This is our daily struggle. ALL of us. If we can do it with the courage and integrity that Xavier’s X-Men achieve, or at least TRY to achieve, all the better. People tell me I should grow up, that that crap ain’t real… But what is “real” anyway?
I think we can make our reality whatever we want it to be… It takes work though…and courage. The question is, what do you want your reality to be? I hope I hear from some of you…
