Just saw the film Wonder Woman. As a child, I often watched actress Lynda Carter’s portrayal of this heroic woman, one who epitomized strength, intelligence, compassion and beauty. She was someone I always strived to be. Two years ago and up until now, I found myself in a similar situation–only sometimes I feel I lack one of WW’s best qualities.
Gal Gadot’s portrayal of the present day Wonder Woman was outstanding! She’s been handed the torch and has exemplified everything the original Wonder Woman was…and more.
And kudos to director Patty Jenkins for directing this amazing film, whose character has empowered little girls and adult women everywhere to always follow your dreams, to strive for the best, to not be dependent on others–specifically a man–and to use what you already have to make this a better world for YOUrself and for those you care about.
The added bonus in the film: Chris Pine as Steve Trevor. 😍
The best line in the film: “Be careful in the world of men, Diana, for they do not deserve you.”
On Dec. 31, 1985, actor, singer, songwriter and musician Rick Nelson, along with his fiancée Helen Blair, four members of his band and Nelson’s manager, were killed when the fourteen-seat, DC-3 private plane they were traveling in crash-landed near DeKalb, Texas.
From 1952 to 1966, Nelson appeared on his parents’ television show, The Adventures of Ozzie & Harriet. It was while he was on the series that he began singing, which eventually propelled his career into Rock and Roll stardom.
Here’s one of my favorite Ricky Nelson songs. 😀 ❤
