My theme for my 2015 A to Z Challenge came from my Disaster Crimes series. Disasters are a theme in each story, so it got me thinking about all the disasters that occur from natural disasters to manmade disasters.
Today’s disaster is...
Are there any Terminator fans out there? Because today’s disaster is JUDGMENT DAY, a fictional nuclear strike featured in the Terminator series. Skynet, an artificial intelligence, initiates a nuclear war on Judgment Day and creates machines to wipeout humanity.
Sarah Connor, the mother of John Connor, the one who will lead humans in the fight against the machines, is one of my all-time favorite female characters. She is badass, and when I was a kid, I wanted to be her –especially with that shotgun! Sarah Connor was played by Linda Hamilton.
FACT: Hamilton's twin sister, Leslie Hamilton Gearren, also portrayed Sarah Connor when it was required that there be two of the character in the same shot.

At the end of the second movie, Terminator 2: Judgment Day, Sarah and John believe they stopped Skynet, but as we know...Judgment Day could never be stopped.
A popular saying from the movies: “The future is not set. There is no fate but what we make for ourselves."
QUESTIONS: Are you a fan of the Terminator movies? Who is your favorite badass female character?
P.S. Tomorrow (April 12th) is my birthday!! :D
