I saw The Blind Side tonight, and it moved me to tears. I did not know it was a true story from this age. It's not remote at all. If you have not seen it, I implore you to do so. It restores and re-affirms my faith in the basic goodness of human beings. Good does exist. And God is good.
It further challenges me to make a difference in this world. We need to make a mark. It could be as little as buying someone a meal and clothing someone or as major as putting a roof over someone's head or adopting a child.
Where you were does not determine where you are going or what you can be. We see it over and over. And I just hope and pray there will be many more people with this kind of story.
If you haven't seen it, please watch The Blind Side: the story of an African American man born to a drug addict mother. It features Michael Oher's journey from the Streets of Memphis TN to becoming a member of a Caucasian family and then on to pro football. He was drafted in 2009. Google him for the real life pictures of him and his family. Amazing.
Once again I can only say God is good.
