My April FAR post introduced the phenomena that was sweeping the nation; Hamilton the Musica l blending contemporary hip hop to the Broadway musical scores. The show has been breaking barriers with its success, intelligence, and fortitude. Hamilton is showing that a diverse cast can be successful. Opening up roles designed specifically to be played by performers of color means encroaching on that space. The director has stated that this show is about America, past and present and one can look at the cast to see it is true. Looking at the cast, the diversity is depicting our nation.

The same musical that is now a world-wide phenomenon and written and starring Lin-Manuel Miranda. Now, this blog post is not about the story behind the musical. This post is about what Hamilton contributed to representation in the media and our questions moving forward. This musical was closely connected to his immigrant community in Washington Heights. It was amazing, I related to the story arc in a way I never did to other Broadway musicals again, they are very white. But I started listening to the soundtrack, a few songs that were recommended by friends. And I was hooked. But the more I listen to it the more I observe its contributions. Considering its faults, of which there are several, this musical contributes to, and in a lot of ways produces, a conversation on issues often ignored in Broadway. Hamilton The Musical, and really the work of Lin-Manuel Miranda, evokes a critical race theorist lens.
You might want to determine your level of willingness to put up with his demanding work schedule and to communicate with him about your needs and concerns. No where did I say, nor I think indicate, that I thought this wasn't a complex issue, or that this girl is a caricature. The views expressed herein do not necessarily represent the position of the Church. Also, I'm having a really hard time understanding from these responses how anyone in the medical field ever dates or gets married. About ten years ago, I realized I needed to quit qualifying my excellent husband who is a better man than many Mormon men I knowI realized I needed to raise my kids to think of him as completely equal to the men they knew at church. It has worked and my children are very protective of their father. And some will do that. And that my friend, is just a hint of the extent of the brain wash that Mormons experience. We all know that. I also remember my father a stake president telling me the night before I got married that every single couple he had counseled through marriage struggles were not reading their scriptures or praying together every night.
It did not go well. I am so in love with him and he says he is too minus the stupid cheating. We need to believe fully and then we make choices, not the other way around. I have dated all walks of TBM women TBM women are closet freaks. I feel I have given a lot of myself and in the process have lost myself and my identity. And your future kids will be taught that you are the reason they don't have an "eternal" family. The independent work is just as important as the work we do as a couple. Will he be happy knowing that you are giving up something of incredible importance to you.
