I had come to see the movie Captain America: The Winter Soldier. The movie is cool. I found it interesting that the evil infestation, in this movie, had come from within a “decent” organization and corruption, of the whole, creates a new path for all those it affects.

In an initial movie, Captain America fights evil with a specific intent to create, an initiate, a new peaceful world. The reality is Captain America will fight, and fight, but will only beat back this evil, temporarily. The evil will exist forever. The evil will redefine itself, turn it over and rise to counter good and get to its own outcome, a new world of evil hope. The reality of evil is good will forever fight the evil.

In a galaxy far, far away, the reactions to the Emperor’s fall into a reactor shaft, on the Death Star, sets a possible end to the reign of the Empire, the end of evil. There is some relief at the end of Return of the Jedi. It is finally over. The man with the power-driven talons is gone. What excites me is just what could spark a new Sith arrival. The fear of not punishing, and not stopping evil, creeps up our spines. New youthful faces, and wiser, past characters will draw new lines in the sand. It’s not done?

The relationships and emotions, in these films, will drive many viewers to connect, or not, to a new era of good versus evil. Sith might battle the Jedi.

The actors will work hard, the screenplay will flow, and the film direction will drive everyone to see these new Star Wars films as just simple pieces or new classics. It is bad to want it, but the Sith, the dark side, might come back, even harder, to remind everyone peace is a privilege. I love the idea this is happening. Everyone who loves Star Wars does.

It is rewritten. The acting happens as we speak. Light sabers might clash. The creatures come to life. The droids ignite. The worlds come to life. There is something about this time and space. The right motives, or wrong motives, will write this story. Characters will take a stand.

Come December 2015, the movie screen will be ready, the story will play out, a hand, in the dark, and one in the light, will shock the universe. The peanut butter, chocolate and other sweet treats will enlighten out senses, the buttery popcorn will warm our hands, and cold drinks will quench our thirst and emphasize our real chills. Star Wars is back.

I Love Sports Will

 The National Basketball Association’s playoffs are great. They pit players that will their wants, against one another to prove who the best is. In my personal opinion, I believe a team, not the Miami Heat, can win the seat as the best team in the association. This team will face a challenge; they will hit a limit, and see, within their system and skill, a way to clutch that championship.

I love Philadelphia sports. The city’s professional sports teams exist in a tough climate, with pressure from the fans and the media. The five sports teams, in baseball, American football, basketball, hockey and football, or soccer, all must produce championship teams, annually. It has been a while since these teams have won. The Philadelphia Phillies got it in 2008. The team pushed their way into the championship. They got a parade. They won the fan and media praise.

It seems like that one championship, while fun, was not enough for a tough city. Six years later, the five of these teams will again push to get a championship in 2014. The reality is a championship will come if all the components of the team fit. The teams will succeed if they have durability, power, great skill, and more passion than the other teams in their leagues. Every Philadelphia sports team will have to outwork their opponents. From the first game to the final championship game of the season, the team that wills a win will get it. It can be done, but the passion has to be there.

Watch a documentary, We Could Be King. You get to see how a high school, Martin Luther King High School in Philadelphia, takes players from another closed school, a hated rival in Germantown High School, and creates a culture that breeds not only a powerful championship football team, but a Mecca for academic success, through the hard times. It makes you wonder what the professional teams can do to one up this success.

It is not an intramural contest. However, it is a question. Can these professional teams get to a certain plateau under their own dire circumstances?

The reality is King High School saw the chance to get a championship and took it under dire circumstances. What can the professional sports teams do to best the teams and players, from their team’s past, for seasons to come? How can players within their organizations push their organizations to make the right decisions for their teams and make a championship the only reality, every year?

It is going to take a different kind of motivation, clearly. I suggest the teams make a pact with one another. I also suggest the teams make a bet with the city’s media.

They can bet the two teams that win a championship in the same season, in the next five years, can determine, for six months after the championships, what the Philadelphia media prints, says, or does in Philadelphia sports media. Philadelphia’s media are as tough, if not tougher than its fans. Their directive is clear. They get the facts and apply the pressure necessary to create a culture for the Philadelphia sports teams to understand they must win it all or lose, while everything else is unacceptable. The teams that will get championships in the next year, or a few years, can disarm this media.

I believe this could be good for the city. It could be good for the sport teams. This can help create a culture where building champions can become a common theme in Philadelphia.

 

An Amish United States President?

An Amish representative could lead the United States of America. Why? If the Amish could elect a small group of individuals, in their Ordnung to exist with “the English”, to represent prominent positions of power in the United Stated of America, it could be a culture shock for the United States. If the United States is to represent all parts of what makes the world a great place, in a democratic state of mind, why not make positions like the President, and others, not only a position for change in this country but also educational positions for all of us.

The Amish are a part of the United States. Why not give them a position that allows their values and ways to influence the country, even if in a minor way? I think I wrote this article in order to highlight a change. The country is full of influences from so many cultures. What those individuals bring to this country positively influences everyone, why not make it so if people run for positions of power, and get elected, they also bookmark a place for the country to learn just what makes their cultures great.

The Amish work ethic, and understanding, can teach. It might not be for everyone, but the ethic applied to a political position could influence a new standard in the American work ethic. An Islamic cultural influence, and understanding, could teach the country to accept a new moral and methodological code. Any culture, with a positive purpose and direction for the country, could influence our country to reach new places in work, ethics, and ways.
