Do you think the twins have been talking to ABC?

The other week the twins were playing pretend.  They were discussing their pretend characters and how they were born, lived and then died.  They both then agreed that if they truly believed in the “spirits” of the dead characters they would come back to life.  There was some further discussion that if we believed in Jake, Sawyer,  Mom Mom and Grandpoppy’s “spirits” then they too could come back to life.  I tried to explain that life/death does not work that way (no matter how much I really want it to be different).  They disagreed and I decided rationalizing with 6 year olds might not get me very far on this topic.

A few days ago, I saw a preview for the new show Resurrection on ABC.  The lead in is “Imagine the impossible.”  In case you have not seen the preview, the cliff notes version is that deceased people are somehow returned to their families.  A boy, who died at the age of 8, is returned to his parents 30 years later.

The twins and ABC have come up with a show that does imagine the impossible.  Every person who has lost a loved one has at some point hoped beyond hope that person would be magically be returned to them.  So, now the big question is to watch or not to watch?

  3. Gorgeous pic of the kids — and gorgeous ideas from their incredible little heads, as always!

  4. I have to admit–I was going to try to watch this one–isn’t it really something that almost anyone would dream could ever be possible?

  5. […] even if we did miraculously figure out the cause of Sawyer’s death he would still be dead.  Resurrection is not our reality.  Of course, I cannot change that now, and of all things, I logically know I […]
