The Solution for Racial Discord and Human Bias

Some of you may experience bias and prejudice regularly in your daily life. People might judge you based on the country you are from or the color of your skin.

Made for Meaning

Disney and Marvel certainly know how to make money. They own most of the entertainment content that has been profitable on TV and at the movies in recent years. Their latest release is a new branch in the expanding Marvel universe, simply entitled, Eternals.

These beings by their actions have made key differences throughout the history of our world. This is a fantasy that calls to the core of our lives, the desire for our lives to matter, to make a difference.
