When my children were young, they enjoyed watching “The Lion King.” (I’m sure I enjoyed it as much as they did). I seem to recall a scene in which the evil hyenas were challenging or threatening Simba, the young lion. He stood his ground and they laughed at his pathetic attempt to roar. But when he roared a second time, they trembled and turned tail to run – not for fear of Simba himself, but his father, Mufasa who stood behind him.
