Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters

MV5BMjA4MDQwODg2NV5BMl5BanBnXkFtZTcwNTc5ODc2OA@@._V1_SX640_SY720_Jeremy Renner you know from the Avengers movies stars in this heavily adapted classic tale where the brother and sister duo are hunting witches who have abducted children. It’s gruesome, violent and somewhat disturbing. We wanted to watch something light hearted but dang, this isn’t it.

Watch with extreme caution and not while eating anything that you don’t wanna see again.

I may have bad dreams because of this one.

A Reminder

Sometimes we need to be reminded what century we live in. That is no joke.

Too often we see accounts of actions, viewpoints and other things that have a place in the last century or further back. Our world is different, its changed, people have changed but some want to hold on to the old ways of doing things and embrace even the old time religion.

I have a saying that the good old days were not good for everyone. Some prospered in the 1950’s but some were persecuted. We can all see times in the life of our country where people who were different were treated like second class citizens. We look today and it still seems to be happening.

What is sad is that the future hasn’t been bright for everyone because its more of the same. I am a idealistic and optimistic person but looking at the reality of it all we seem to be in a clash of culture, faith and politics. Friends the revolution is now. We must be ready for it. I hope for better days. Our work here on Earth isn’t done. The voices of the past should tell us how to have a better future and that is not to repeat things that didn’t work.

It is my hope that everyone will be able to love who they choose, worship from their own kind of pew and then we shall be free…thank’s Garth Brooks for that one.

Be strong and of good courage, we all need that. Grace and peace.
