Today, my oldest daughter took me to see “The Help”, it was an unexpected treat. She bought the movie tickets, I bought the iced teas. I don’t want to try and sum up the literal parts of this film, or give anything away.
I will say this,
I love it when a movie can take my heart and strum a chord of feelings I didn’t know existed.
Or perhaps, it was there all along, just waiting for some eruption of laughter, or gasp of the unexpected to wake it up, the way earthquakes wake up volcanoes. I am moved.
The way people can reveal all the facets of themselves, and hope for only love in return.
The simplest of phrases, uttered on a kind breath can plant a seed, can change the world.
“You is smart. You is kind. You is important.”
