The prompt for today's 5 minute writing is Mighty.
The first thing that popped into my mind when I saw the word Mighty was Mighty Mouse.
I am really dating myself here. Mighty Mouse was a cartoon that I watched fifty some years ago. His motto was "Here I come to save the day". He sang it and every time I think or say it, it is with the tune rattling around in my brain.
Mighty Mouse was one of many tv heroes when I was a kid. It was all tv then, all make believe. Except for maybe Milky the Clown who had a live audience. Now when I look at what is on tv for our kids/grandkids I feel sad for them that it is all so real. Their heroes are not super. They are not saving the woman tied to the train tracks by the villain. Now they are dealing with real life problems like rape, domestic violence, murder and incest. How sad for our children!!
Won't you please join us at FMF and let us know what Mighty means to you?
