I just got back from seeing The Blind Side….WOW…What a GREAT movie. For some reason I was not that excited to go see it, but boy am I glad I did. Like other great inspirational films like Miracle, Stand and Deliver, Remember the Titans, and Brave Heart…The Blind Side is based on a true story.
The studio was brilliant releasing the film at Thanksgiving time. There are several scenes where I was really stunned at how little some people have in their lives and how much so many of us have. I was very happy I was seeing it with my two children and my little brother from BBBS. It really gives perspective to those of us who have truly been blessed in our lives.
That was only one of the powerful life lessons the movie had to deliver. Why don’t you chime in and tell me what you got out of the movie….and/or tell me your favorite inspirational movies are…and why.
Watching The Blind Side with my little brother was very surreal. Once you watch the movie, you will understand why. For now, let’s just say that you would be amazed at the impact you can have on a young persons life if you just slow down for a minute, and take the time to take an interest in their lives. It doesn’t have to be someone less fortunate than you….it may be your own child or relative.
Go see the movie as soon as you can! It really is great. Then let me know your thoughts.
