Check Captain America’s website and blog for more info.

Who better than a bigger-than-life cartoon character to illustrate the point? Al Bigley is an award-winning cartoonist and commercial artist, who’s worked with Marvel, DC, Disney, and many more. He also partners with the Drawn To Help mission, bringing art lessons to children in hospitals or under quarantine. He’s using Jeff Lake’s performance of “Better Times Will Come” and racing to put a smile on every child’s face. Al comes to us through our mutual friend Steve Barr, of Drawn to Help. Thanks, Al!!!

Better times, better times will come.
Better times, better times will come.
When this world learns to live as one,
oh, better times will come

When we greet each dawn without fear
knowing loved ones soon will be near
When the winds of war
cannot blow any more
Oh, better times will come


Though we live each day as our last
we know someday soon it will pass
We will dance, we will sing
in that never-ending spring
Oh, better times will come
