One of my all time favorite superheroes is Wonder Woman. She has taken up so much space in my ideas of being a better human. Her ideas of Love, Peace and Truth are inspirations. William Moulton Marston, and all the other writers that have spent their talents to create this beautifully wonderful character should be applauded.
“I certainly understand the power of Comfort.” - Wonder Woman *
Diana is Beautiful as Aphrodite, Wise as Athena, Strong as Hercules and Swifter than Mercury. She is the Princess of Paradise, the Amazing Amazon - Wonder Woman. Formed out of clay by her mother Hippolyta and given life and gifts by the gods. Diana becomes the champion of the Amazons, and the ambassador to “The Patriarch’s World”. The Amazons of Themyscira (Paradise Island) teach peace through perfection of mind, body and spirit, but to have peace one must prepare for war. Upon arriving to Themyscira the traveler would be accepted and offered all forms of peace and comfort. All the Amazons ask is to have an open mind, an open heart, and to seek perfection. Mr. Moulton created Wonder Woman to examine the male/female relationships. But now the comic book examines much more, the relationships between peace and war, the relationships between god and man, and the relationships between culture and lifestyle. Diana is beautiful, wise, strong, and swift; she offers the hand of peace and comfort to all.
We all seek comfort, peace and serenity. Comfort is not a big fluffy bed, or large amounts of food in the refrigerator. Comfort knows that a good day’s work was completed; comfort is offering the extra we have to the needy, comfort is bringing our sad friend a flower. Lynda Carter, TV’s Wonder Woman said, "All life really is just one giant moment, and an eternal moment!" Make this moment a comfortable one, do what must be done and offer the extra to those people in need. When we take the time to think of the comfort of others, we find that we are naturally more comfortable with ourselves.
