Marc Lopez Law May 2019

MAY 2019 LOPEZ LAW I adore the city of Indianapolis, and that goes for her suburbs, as well. I’ve lived here most of my life, and one of my favorite ways to show my affection is by going out to eat and putting dollars back into the local community. I love showing my support for area restaurants—Krab Kingz Seafood FROM THE DESK OF Marc Lopez LIMITED EDITION!

at 10537 East Washington Street is my new favorite place in the world—almost as much as I love weekend activities with my daughter. Whether we’re visiting the Children’s Museum, exploring the 400-acre sports complex at Grand Park, riding in a hot air balloon, or time traveling at Conner Prairie, there’s always an adventure waiting, and there’s always fun to be had. As I write this, Indianapolis has recently gone through what’s been described in the media as the city’s “deadliest 24 hours in five years.” Even though I don’t know any of the victims or their families, this is both sad and a little bit scary. Without diminishing the importance of calling attention to gun-related violence, I’d like to remind all of you that bad news sells. We’re so much more than our worst headlines. Violence isn’t what makes us exceptional, because every city has violence. Do you know what every city doesn’t have? A Children’s Museum. Conner Prairie. Krab Kingz. Try to remember that the best things in life come from embracing what you love, and not from avoiding what scares you. Fear may be contagious, but so is kindness. As long as you’re still breathing, it’s not too late to inject a little positivity into the world.

The first weekend of May is the perfect weekend for nerds everywhere. If you know comics aren’t just for kids, rant and rave about “Star Wars” every chance you get, or have a passion for physics that goes beyond the classroom, congratulations! There’s a whole weekend just for you. The stars have aligned, and you can let your inner nerd shine on May 3–4 while you celebrate International Space Day, Free Comic Book Day, and Star Wars Day. There are plenty of ways to enjoy these holidays, so take part in the festivities and ensure the weekend is as action packed as a starship battle in a galaxy far, far away. Space Day is exactly what it sounds like: a day to commemorate the science and exploration of space and appreciate the final frontier in all its wonder and mystery. Although Lockheed Martin Corporation is credited with starting Space Day in 1997, the holiday really lifted off in 2001 when Sen. (and former astronaut) John Glenn declared the first Friday in May to be International Space Day. The holiday’s immense popularity continues to this day, with many scientific organizations celebrating space with demonstrations, gatherings, and educational programs. There’s no set protocol for the celebration, so you can observe Space Day however you see fit. Check out popular space podcasts like “Interplanetary Podcast,”“Main Engine Cutoff,” or “Planetary Radio,” all of which go over the latest news in space and space exploration. You can read up on asteroids, colonizing Mars, or the newest extrasolar discoveries to build your knowledge of all things extraterrestrial. Or, if you have a telescope, you can see some of those things for yourself. Like space, the possibilities are endless. CELEBRATING INTERNATIONAL SPACE DAY

Look out for each other, and always plead the 5th.
