Ombre September 14 started out as just a normal day. I drove Dylan to school, kissed him goodbye and told him that his brother Zakkary would pick him up from school that day. After dropping Dylan off, I returned home to begin my day. My 25 year old son Zakkary was a graduate of Evans High School and was pursuing a professional career in the music industry as a talented singer-songwriter and brilliant guitarist. Zakkary was home with me that day. Around 2:30 p.m., I began washing clothes, cleaned the house and prepared lunch. I made Chicken Parmigiana (Zakkary’s...

By Renee Williams   For decades, children have been dressing up as superheroes. Our children find comfort, even hope, in superheroes.

Another part of Wonder Woman’s success story is the common narrative of “the hero’s journey,” a story that has been told in a thousand different ways with a thousand different faces.
