Living-by-the-Word

You cannot wait for the ‘perfect’ moment, for it may never come. In which case, you will be waiting forever. You must act now, and take action in what ever way you can!
I always get emotional now listening to "The Story of Tonight"

Why?

The first lines of the song (I may not live to see our glory…) open with Alexander. The next set (Raise a glass to freedom) opens with Laurens.

Fast forward to when they’re dying. Laurens’ last words of the show are “I may not live to see our glory…” while Alexander’s last words of the show are “Raise a glass to freedom.”

In their times of death, Hamilton and Laurens quoted each other.

Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance. Let perseverance finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything.
—  James‬ ‭1:2-4

A morality based on slavish obedience, to laws or to gods, makes pliant dogs of able men. True morality springs forth from dark wells deep within, comes flashing down from atop the high mountain - it cannot be passed from hand to hand or mouth to ear; it must be lived, breathed, dwelled within, until its essence suffuses the being entire. True morality is the living truth, expressed in word and deed. The moral man does not obey, he acts; for he himself is that living truth.

Question, if there is only one word you can describe the mainstream comic book Marvel Universe right now, what would that word be?

even with cosmic level events and cap being hydra its STILL better than the one we’re being forced to live in now.

is that more than one word? :)

The Jack Thorne Appreciation Project

So, as we approach the first full year run of Cursed Child, a potential cast change this year and a move to Broadway next year, there are projects of thanks for the cast, but I and others think there should be one for Jack, whose words have touched so many lives. @bounding-heart shared this apt quote from Jack: “I’m a Potterhead. I’m a Potterhead till I die. The idea that my people might think that I’d done a terrible job on the set of books that I love was almost too much to bear, so I hope they don’t feel like that.” 

We’d like to reassure him that he did us all proud.

So, send in what you want to me, and I’ll put it all together into something that can be physically sent to Jack. If letters are your thing, then write, if art is your thing then draw, if videos are your thing then film. Whether what you want to offer, digital or physical, get in touch with me. My email is orcasontap@hotmail.com, or my Twitter handle, @OhMyNarwhals, or send it to me on here. If you need a postal address, please contact me via private message.

I’ll make a deadline of April 30th. The project will be mailed on May 1st.

Please share this with Cursed Child fans far and wide. I stress, you do not need to have seen the play. If the script alone has moved you (as it still does me), get involved! :)
