I know my request will fall on deaf ears and this is somewhat of a lost cause. As of this writing, the United States is a week away from what many are calling the most important Presidential election of our lifetimes.

So, why would I be encouraging other people not to vote?
“Push yourself out of your comfort zone” is a common phrase that a person is told at some point in their life. Years ago, that phrase easily would have gone over my head as another cliche saying but now I feel as if that’s a daily goal for me. Weird, right?

Disney’s 2020 live-action version of Mulan features Mulan’s harrowing journey of hiding her identity to fight in the war, rather than having the army draft her sick father. In this new version, Disney swapped the fun songs and Mushu the dragon from the 1998 original for a more dramatic and life-like movie. They used an all Asian cast, with more accurate cultural context.
