The Monthly Feature, “The Book of Eli”, showed us that a world without faith isn’t all that atheists think it would be. Faith breeds hope, and doubt brings disorder – survival of the fittest among a gang of armed bullies. Without people of faith, the world ultimately becomes a much crueler and more callous place – one that even the doubters wouldn’t enjoy living in.
In October blogs, we learned from “Kit Kittredge – An American Girl” that it’s possible to get through hard economic times, if we’re determined to get creative and humble ourselves to do what needs to be done. Especially when we recognize that many people have survived far worse circumstances – such as the Great Depression!
“War of the Worlds” showed us that it’s easy for us to be defeated by enemies when we’re already prepared to go to war with our own family and neighbors, and “Kindergarten” taught us to preserve things that are precious, including relationships, if we don’t want to see them decay.
Finally, Richard Matheson’s classic horror story, I Am Legend, demonstrated that fear can keep us from tackling an overwhelming problem. But by taking the time to work through it with persistence, we can find the solution we need to survive.
Have a great day!
