A personal memoir by Liam
anything can happen. As Walt Disney said, “Pigs can fly, soar through the
caramel sky and animals will rule the world.” Well that is how I felt when I saw
Excalibur. It was a mighty sword; a smooth, sharp, shining, silver sword, to be
exact. The rough ridged rock that held the blade was just waiting for someone,
a true hero to pull it out.
I was in Disney World, Florida. Thousands of people gazing at me, I decide
to step up to the rock and grab the smooth golden handle. My navy blue Nike
shoe lie on the boulder, as I tug on the handle. I felt the wind brush up against
my left shoulder, as Excalibur slid out of the granite. The whole Magic Kingdom
erupted. On that day I wielded Excalibur in my hands.
Was that the real Excalibur? Who knows? But one thing remains certain, in
Disney pigs can fly, soar through the caramel sky, and animals might not rule the
whole world, but they rule Disney World!
