"[I]f we fail, then the whole world,…all that we have known and cared for…will sink into the abyss of a new Dark Age made more sinister, and perhaps more protracted, by the lights of perverted science. Let us therefore brace ourselves to our duties, and so bear ourselves that…men will still say, 'This was their finest hour.'”
TFH 10/1: The Most Magical Place on Earth Turns 40
Walt Disney changed entertainment and is an enduring influence on our culture. Forty years ago today on October 1, 1971 the gates opened to Walt Disney World. Sadly, Walt did not live to see Disney World built, but we are grateful for his energy, his talent, and his imagination. We're all better for it!
My family and I were blessed to spend a week at WDW this summer, and can't wait to go back!
It all started with a mouse! Thanks Walt! (Pictures are my own).
