Dragons Rule!

She who controls the dragon controls the world.

Drogon, Rhaegal and Viserion are the most recent dragons to capture our attention, thanks to "Game of Thrones," the wildly popular HBO hit that's placed dragons front and center in our imagination.

Dragons have captured the imagination of people going back to the ancient cultures of the Greek and Roman Empires when the skeletal bones of dinosaurs fed the myths we still believe today.

The power and mystique of those myths have fed countless writers and artists whose creations thrill, terrify and charm us. Some say dragons represent our innermost Id. What would your dragon look like? Comment below, email Colin@wnpr.org, or tweet @wnprcolin.
