Watching the blockbusters of the 80s and 70s and 90s with my mom on our home television set including but not limited to Jaws, The LionKing, Nemo, Indiana Jones, the first StarWars films, some oddball movies like space-balls, Goonies, and my early childhood friend introducing me to the matrix and more risqué forward thinking films at a young age also including Tarantino’s Kill Bill and IP Man.

Yes, only if we allow it and the general public and audiences believe in the stories enough to make a change, big or small, yes.

Less hate, more peace at living a sublime yet no frills life.

Most likely in a direction we cannot predict, a-lot is changing with new technologies and new doors opening for people of different cultures and viewpoints to share their own stories. Im excited for the next 100 and the 100 after that…
