Character Assassination: The malicious and unjustified harming of a person's reputation. 

And no one knows that better than Spider-Man! Although the web slinger risks his life daily to rescue those in need, he is labeled by many as the bad guy. His critics do not shy away from spreading fake news that Spider-Man is a menace and a threat to society.

The Cat and the Companion

54 million Americans suffer from mental health issues and disorders. I am one of them. It is something I have struggled with most of my life and continue to battle. I decided to use my experience as inspiration for a short story; The Cat and the Companion. It is a tale of fantasy centering around a magical cat named Dinah and a young girl named Kell, who is loosing her battle with depression. This story was originally published in my debut ebook, Realm of Lore. I am making The Cat and the Companion public in the hopes that it may help others who are struggling with mental illness. I hope this story can give you hope and comfort. I pray that you find peace. Please feel free to share it.

The Cat and the Companion

The realm was a peaceful one. The land was green with plants and food. The birds sang sweetly with the rising sun. Water flowed, the moon shined bright and all manner of living creatures lived in harmony. The most fascinating of all was that all diseases and sickness were cured. Gratitude was due to the one who healed those who had fallen sick. Some called her a healer. Others referred to her as a deity but to the naked eye, she didn’t appear to be any of those things. She was in fact, a cat. The black haired feline was called Dinah. No one knew how she possessed the ability to heal. Was it magic? Was she a god? In the end the truth did not matter. What mattered was that she could cure any aliment. Although she never requested payment, those who lived in the realm showed their appreciation by building her a magnificent temple. Dinah was awarded offerings of food and gifts. Her temple was immaculate thanks to the many volunteers who cleaned every surface.

December 15th 2017 was a big day for Star Wars fans. The Last Jedi had finally hit theaters. The film, which is the sequel to the 2015 box office smash The Force Awakens, also marks Carrie Fisher's last performance as the beloved and iconic Princess Leia. I attended a screening Saturday at noon. My expectations were high; I loved The Force Awakens and Rogue One however I felt that this latest installment did not measure up. Below is a list of what I felt was wrong with the film.
