Those who know me know that I personally believe in a gospel of love (not fairy tale ideas nor Hollywood's romances but in self-sacrificial love made up of all the hard and uncomfortable stuff that lets others know they are valued and important and stand the test of time be it towards family, a friend, an acquaintance, a neighbor, a child, a stranger.....anybody). I'm happy to say I saw true love evident in this film and I think this love made room for a very important forgiveness that in a way brought the film to its nearly perfect end (if anyone's life could be called so).
Take home message: Try to make a difference no matter how small wherever you find yourself and if you must speak out/up for someone else do it with and in the name of love. When we fight for what we believe in, we are always on the winning side and God for His own part knows how to balance the scales adequately, maybe not in your lifetime or generation, but at the right time. Honest, diligent and well-executed labor will only earn you respect (and hopefully reward).
Have you seen this movie? Any thoughts?
