The True Meaning Of Life

By Pat A. FlemingPublished: July 2017

The Years have passed by,
In the blink of an eye,
Moments of sadness,
And joy have flown by.

People I loved,
Have come and have gone,
But the world never stopped,
And we all carried on.

Life wasn't easy,
And the struggles were there,
Filled with times that it mattered,
Times I just didn't care.

I stood on my own,
And I still found my way,
Through some nights filled with tears,
And the dawn of new days.

And now with old age,
It's become very clear,
Things I once found important,
Were not why I was here.

And how many things,
That I managed to buy,
Were never what made me,
Feel better inside.

And the worries and fears,
That plagued me each day,
In the end of it all,
Would just fade away.

But how much I reached out,
To others when needed,
Would be the true measure,
Of how I succeeded.

And how much I shared,
Of my soul and my heart,
Would ultimately be,
What set me apart.

And what's really important,
Is my opinion of me,
And whether or not,
I'm the best I can be.

And how much more kindness,
And love I can show,
Before the Lord tells me,
It's my time to go.

We all remember the big purple dinosaur that graced us with his presence throughout the ‘90s until 2009, dancing around, singing and teaching us about friendship. Whether you loved, hated or just didn’t care for him, there’s no doubt about it that Barney the big purple dinosaur was completely iconic. 


Now, a decade later, he’s coming back, but in a whole new way that we would never have expected, and it’s actually kind of strange: A live-action Barney movie. 


If you’re uncomfortable by this, that’s perfectly fine, and if you’re feeling pumped up about the idea, we also won’t judge you. While the movie will surely evoke some nostalgia, some people did always find him to be kind of creepy.  


Not too much information has been released about the live-action re-make, other than what viewers may be able to expect, and that it will be produced by Daniel Kaluuya.  


According to Kaluyya, who also produced Black Panther, Barney is a childhood figure that disappeared, and that was left very misunderstood. The goal of the film is to see Barney as a modern-day hero and explore his message of ‘’I love you, you love me’’ even further.
