Mickey Mouse turns 87 today! On this day in 1928, Steamboat Willie was released and Walt Disney gave us our favorite character (and with this short film, the subject of my M.A. Thesis).
In the current state of the world, there is a lot of sadness and separation, but Mickey Mouse, and the rest of the Disney family, help to bring us happiness. I have met so many wonderful people on social media simply because of our shared love for this mouse and everything he represents. It is not childish. Rather,Mickey keeps us young at heart and helps us to find the good in life.
Thank you Mickey and enjoy your birthday!
