Unit 5 -- How Freaking Cool is This???
Some people wonder how creative, science and tech events ended up on the same calendar, the answer is pretty simple. In spite of the whole left brain vs. right brain conundrum, there is a lot of cross-over between creativity, science, and technology. The ability to think outside the box, to see possibilities, and apply logic all come together to pursue ideas and build things bigger than ourselves.
With that in mind, this week's shoutout is to the Unit 5 comic.
Created by Skip Winter, Unit 5 follows the lives of five people with personal connections to the World Trade Center bombing
who are recruited by the government to fight against global terror. Unit 5 is the story of regular people who become superheroes. They don't come from a different planet, didn't get bitten by a radiated spider, they're just five people who react to their circumstance by standing up to make a difference.
Winters does a lot to give back to back to the community, especially first responders and children, and says he will be speaking to kids in the schools here in Manchester in the near future. He also tells me that the Unit 5 book is in development for a feature film. Not too shabby for a former businessman from Philly. (Yeah, there are a lot of us Philly/Jersey people up here in New England.)
Take a look at the video. It is so cool.
