The program had premiered in 200, but was taken off of the air shortly afterward because the network said it received poor ratings, but nine years later the program was put back on the air (Tartakovsky & Read, n.d.). It is not just television programs and Hollywood movies which portray mentally ill people in a bad light. National and local news media

    Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass, Lewis Carroll depicts the world of Wonderland as an enchanting place where magical and fascinating things seem to happen. However despite its fairytale qualities, Wonderland comes across as a bit strange and unconventional fantasy land appropriate for that of a child’s imagination. In Wonderland, there are no charming human beings or friendly animals who sing along to cheerful tunes, as we see in most children’s story books. Instead, Wonderland is filled…

    Winter Wonderland I wake up to the sun heating my cold feet under my warm fuzzy blanket. The room is filled with silence as I slide out of the coziness of my covers to look outside the window. To my delightful surprise, tiny ice crystals are falling from the sky creating a white blanket on the world.
