21 Years of Power Rangers
Twenty one years ago today a legacy began that changed the course of pop culture forever and made me the person I am. Today is the twenty first anniversary of the first airing of Day of the Dumpster, the first episode of 787 to follow. The series has spawned two films with a third on the way, and has given us some of the greatest icons in all of pop culture. A Ranger can be anyone from any background, and the reason it resonates is because each of the 120 Rangers symbolize something important and different in each of us. We pretended to be them when we were weak, and w take their stories and smiles with us to make us strong. In its’ twenty first year Power Rangers is stronger than ever in the eyes and hearts of millions of fans worldwide, spanning several generations, with even more to come. To think that a Japanese to American adaptation would turn into a worldwide phenomenon is insane, but one group of people knew different. Without that first episode we wouldn’t be where we are today. I have made lifelong friends and created relationships that mean the most to me because of this series. It has wings that can take you anywhere, any when, and to any place your imagination can think of. The true center of the show, holding together action, comedy, drama, and moral fibers at its heart is love. The lessons I have learned from these characters have made me the person I am today. I am proud, confident, and wise because Power Rangers taught me to be stronger, be kinder, and choose to be good, and do great things. From the beginning this show has taught us all to aspire to something greater, to treat others with respect, and to accept everyone as if they were an extension of you. “Be attached not to the master, but to the lesson.” Every single one of these beautiful characters along the way shaped us all, Rangers or not, and it wouldn’t be without that first episode. We have lost so many along the way, but we carry them with us, cast, crew, and fans alike. These lessons, this single mission of hope, diversity, and equality is just as important as it was in 1993. “When you have the great power, anything is possible.”
