Martyr Litmus Test

Feel like a martyr? What’s your cause? A martyr must by definition be suffering for a cause.

If your cause is just yourself, you’re not a martyr, you’re just feeling sorry for yourself.

I'm a blogger, film critic, & podcaster with an MA in English from California State University, Fullerton. I teach public school, 4th grade as my primary occupation. My views on films and life are usually headstrong and often 'left of center' on movies and life, but I have respect for the other side. I married my high-desert princess (now my queen). We have 3 children.
