This is the best poster I have seen this week. No, this month. I find the Justice League impressive enough as it is, but this rendition makes them look even more so. Mesmerizing is the word that came to mind when I first laid my eyes on the poster, and after minutes of gazing at it, I was even more convinced of how gorgeous they artist made the superheroes look.
The poster was made for a campaign called We Can Be Heroes, where DC partnered up with several charities working to fight hunger in the Horn of Africa. The charities involved are Save the Children, International Rescue Committee, and Mercy Corps.
“Where the Wild Things Are” is a classic children’s book, and just like many other classic things, it has been treated in various ways. There is the movie that came out a couple of years ago, which I have not seen, by the way. Christopher Walken’s reading of “Where the Wild Things Are” is going to blow your socks off. I promise you.
Parents, you might want to view it without your kids first, and then decide whether you want them to see/hear the video or not.
Christopher Walken’s side comments made me snort, to be sure. However, they also made me think. I wonder what goes on in the minds of kids as we read such stories to them and as they see the accompanying illustrations? Would similar thoughts (as Walken’s comments) ever enter any child’s mind?
It seems like eons ago when I first read the book titled “The Case for Christ” by Lee Strobel. A journalist by profession, Strobel used to be full of unbelief when it came to the cornerstone of Christianity. In his quest to discredit Jesus Christ, Strobel was converted.
Obviously, if you are a Christian, you will enjoy reading the book and find yourself agreeing with what the author professes. To be honest, though, I remember this particular Christian still thinking from the perspective of a cynic. I remember thinking that if I were not a Christian, I still might have had my doubts. That is not to say that the book isn’t all that convincing. If anything, my side thoughts are proof that one cannot be convinced about faith unless there is a personal encounter.
