Angelina Jolie? I think I have seen her in the movies. But she is a Hero?

Angelina Jolie. But isn't she married to a guy named Pitt, so shouldn't it be Mrs, Pitt? hihihihihi

I get dark places where the sun does not shine. Many times they are good for things like mushrooms and cool storage. Generally slimey green things grow there. Sometimes that is good. Usually it stinks in such places. I know that they can be good places for certain purposes. But I do not like them.

One time I put something up kind of damp and stored it in a dark cool place. It grew a nasty mold all over it which destroyed the host. I sneezed for a week after just touching it long enough to throw it out.

I figure coffins and graves and bat caves are such places. OK they have there place but it is not for the living.

So this Angelina hmmm. Does she shine light?

I am adopted so I like to here the stories of her adopting cool kids. I suppose I could stop there and have a reason to watch her movies, although I must say I would have to look it up as I do not know one of them.

I can tell you first hand that cancer is something that grows in the dark. It feeds off of healthy until it kills it. Cancer in the world of living things is insanity.

But I know this: Direct sunlight kills the things that live in the dark. Adoption often does and surely cancer does. So along comes this ordinary rich, beautiful, happy person and she uses her talent to shed light on things that do well in darkness but need light to make them healthy and productive and good again.

If I were an Angel I would be such a person --- funny huh as that sound oxymoronic. But apparently not for this little wonderful light in an often dark world.

I got heroes but a lot of them just got smaller. I got lights but one of them is shining brighter

So this gal who I do not know has brought light unto things often kept in the dark. Does not that sound like a super hero? I don't care you can have your own super heroes. I have a new one, and her name is Angelina, oh my the name gives her away.

This really cool guy wrote a saying and some really cool friends gave it to me in a hospital bed after cancer went wonky on me and chemo damned near killed me. The fellow was named Kipling and the quote goes something like this: "If you can meet with triumph and disaster and treat those two imposters just the same"

This Angelina did more than this, she shared with us her human condition and allowed us to share in triumph through courage. She took a damned human disaster and lifted us all to a higher better place.

I apologize for my indescretion, but for a moment there I thought this was the sexiest most attractive woman in the world, by her courage and humanity. Of course I know that woman is my wife and she is another man's wife. But the beauty in love is beyond our capacity to avert our attention from.

A call to arms, let us all be heroes, let us all shine a light.

I am a better man today because a woman by disclosing a darkness shined light on it instead.

We do not need another hero. But by golly gosh and good sakes alive we damn well have one.

Let us look deeper for real heroes

Just a few quotes from a master

If life comes upon us and takes us by surprise we are unwise

If the light hurts your eyes you have been too long in the dark

If victory requires the acknowledgement of defeat it is not

If i love you there is nothing you can do about that

If you love your adopted child both are blessed

If you face your demons good for you, if you share your triumph over them, good for us

If you are unsure but take the heartier path you are always welcome at my table

      Hello and good afternoon Sir Eric John Wayne.

      Angelina has one key thing over someone like me or you - she is a world class celebrity and she just happens to be a beautiful woman (subjectively speaking) and people in our society especially the social media get their knickers all tied up in a knot when people like that make a bold public statement.

      You are world famous in my humble opinion because you never shirk or shrink away from your opinion and what you may consider to be the truth or in some cases, a hoax, and that is why you always rate so highly in my book. You talk the talk and walk the walk and you just happen to be a damn fine writer too. God bless you buddy from Colin and his cats at lake erie time 4:40pm on a beautiful early summer's afternoon and a nice chicken cooking in the oven for epi man's tum tum, lol, and the cats get a taste too

      We need our John Waynes. They remind us of right and wrong. I think I especially admire this woman because every day heroes like her are out there, and she helps us to see them. God lives with the meek but he sheds the same life giving rain on the powerful. We are blessed to have women like you Theresa who guide through love, accept the task at hand, and move forward through bravery.

      A good approach Eric. Angelina, in her youth, did her share of stupid, kinky, thoughtless things, but she didn't stay there. As you point out she has used her celebrity and wealth to accomplish good, and for that, there should be appreciation and respect. Good Hub. Theresa.
