Each holiday brings a new something to be grateful for. Each day brings a new experience. Over the week of Thanksgiving I had the opportunity to go to Disney World — also known as the most magical place on Earth. This is undeniably true. I got sick my last day there, but this couldn’t muddle the fact that I was in the creation of a dreamer such as myself, Mr. Walt Disney. He wasn’t even alive to see the opening of Walt Disney World in Orlando, Fla. However, he had a team of people who had faith in him and believed in his dream. Because of this, Disney World is still a raving success.

A worthy entry in the Wizarding World

“Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald” is director David Yates’s sixth installment in the Harry Potter/Fantastic Beasts franchise. It follows Newt Scamander (Eddie Redmayne) who wants to have his international travel privileges reinstated; however, after the events of the first “Fantastic Beasts,” he is constantly denied. He is unwillingly pulled into the fight against Grindelwald (Johnny Depp) and his evil forces. He must quickly choose where his allegiance lies — or the consequences could be catastrophic.

Lately I’ve been thinking about movies I might dare consider to be my favorites. I don’t know if the season of fall has drawn me to dwell on such things. Maybe it was my co-worker who caused me to think more about it when he quizzed me one night on just about my favorite anything. At one point he wanted to know what my all-time favorite movie was.

Man on the Street: Do You Believe in Life After Death?

“I do believe in life after death because I, for one, was raised in church my whole life and my mother had cancer when I was a child. She was put into remission. I also had cancer when I was 15 and was put into remission shortly after I was diagnosed. I have had many family who I have seen miracles through them. I just know in my heart that there is life after death.”
