Lions, tigers, and bears… oh my
Dorothy has escaped the "gray" world of life. She had lived with her aunt and uncle on their "gray" farm where the sun beat down on "the great gray prairie", baking the ground, dulling the house, and transforming Aunt Em, the once "young, pretty wife" into someone who was gaunt and unsmiling, and in fact wondered how Dorothy could ever find "anything to laugh at."

Heroes come in all shapes and sizes and... Continue Reading →
