Fighting the Darkness Like Superheroes- Episode 88

(CN: spoilers are discussed)

We watched a couple of movies that stirred up some feelings about the human condition and the state of the world: Black Panther and Wonder Woman. Sometimes the things that give us so much hope and make us feel motivated to see the good in the world also contrast with the darkness and despair around us. We’re trying to fight back against that darkness in our heads.

(Note: Most of my crying during those two movies were happy cries, thankfully. Also, apparently I did get the song lyrics right despite getting the melody mixed up with “Bare Necessities” from The Jungle Book. The real question is how did I even know this old song? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5Qk9o_ZeR7s ~DJ)
