The Bags

It’s been just about a year now since my mother went on to a higher place, and as we get close to Christmas my mind drifts back to the Christmas mornings of my childhood in Spotsylvania County. My four brothers and I would wake up early on Christmas morning and go into the living room where we would find our Christmas gift, which was a typical brown paper lunch bag containing an apple, an orange or tangerine, a handful of hard Christmas candy, and a handful of Holiday shelled nuts.

I remember when I was a kid and sometimes I would overhear my mother reminding our father that it was close to Christmas and she had to go to town to get the candy and nuts for the bags. I imagine that my mother is up in heaven right now bugging God, reminding him that it’s close to Christmas and that she have to go to Earl’s SuperMarket in Fredericksburg to get the candy and nuts for the bags.

               HAVE A MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYBODY!

NEW K.A.N.S.A.S. Dissatisfied with the way the adults are running the nation, a well-organized, underground society of intelligent kids demand the right to vote and to be given their own statehood or else. (The kids believe that voting should be based upon a person’s IQ, not their age.
Synopsis: ‘NEW K.A.N.S.A.S.’ (Kids’ Alliance National Society And Sanctuary): Discouraged with his lack of ability to control his own destiny fueled by his parents’ divorce and already fed up with the way the adults are running the country, a twelve year old boy forms a society to give children the Right to Vote and attempts to establish their own State in which to do it. All hell breaks when the U.S. Government starts to hunt down the leader and his underground network. In the meantime, the secretive children’s society is growing to an unbelievable size and there’s no stopping them now! TAGLINE: “Don’t underestimate the power of kids”
Although I’d originally wrote ‘NEW K.A.N.S.A.S.’ as a live action feature, it could also work as an ANIMATED feature-length movie as well. (The ‘Kansas’ in NEW K.A.N.S.A.S. stands for Kids’ Alliance National Society And Sanctuary)
