Fighting Fear after the Paris attacks.

Chris Lauzon:

Amazing blog post from my friend Steve.

Seeing the news unfold from Paris that there had been yet another terrorist attack, I have to be honest: I didn’t feel too much at first.

Yes, it was awful, but the scenes played out on the screen like the plot of an action film: dramatic, but ultimately ones that we’ve seen time and time again. The world would get back to their feet, and life would continue as before.

Or at least, that’s how it should have went.

Eleven days on, when the frivolous debates over whether or not people should change their Facebook profile to a blue, white, and red tricoleur have subsided, and other humanitarian tragedies that were ignored by the Western media have been highlighted, the chaos and uncertainty remains.

That wasn’t meant to happen.

I don’t want to admit it, but I’m going to be honest: I am scared. The sort of fear that builds…

About The Happiness Bar at WordCamp US

I wrote a short blog post about WordCamp US about the Happiness Bar, which you can read here. I think being a volunteer for the Happiness Bar is the coolest thing I can do at a WordCamp, because I get to help people in person….IN REAL LIFE! Anyway, check out the post and I hope to see you there!!!!

Support #ForceForDaniel

The Story of Daniel Fleetwood and his desire to see ‘The Force Awakens’  before his demise is very touching. If you haven’t heard of this story, you can read the CNN article about it here.

I can’t imagine why Disney wouldn’t grant this mans request. I really hope they do. Mark Hamill retweeted the following tweet, which suggests he’s in support of it:

If Luke Skywalker supports something, you support it.

FYI, Daniel Fleetwood’s family has a GoFundMe campaign you can donate money too. I totally recommend doing that. You can view it here.

One of my favorite movies of all time is a movie called ‘Fanboys.’ If you are a star wars fan, but haven’t seen it, you totally should. You can read about it here. The story of the movie is similar, and I cried my eyes out for a good hour after I saw the movie. The story of #ForceForDaniel is very sad, and I am praying for the family. I can’t imagine how hard this is for them.


I guess I won’t be seeing The Last Witch Hunter

Normally I don’t believe in movie reviews, and I think people who review things for a living are basically wastes of space (produce your own material if you claim to be such an expert!), but the feedback about The Last Witch Hunter is a bit intense. Checkout the Rotten Tomatoes review here.

That kinda bums me out. I still wanna see it, but now I’m expecting to waste my money. Maybe I’ll go see Crimson Peak instead?
