Movie Monday: To Save a Life

Okay, so I have my next movie recommendation for y'all! You need to watch To Save A Life! It was loaned to me by a friend and after months and months I finally found time to watch it while I was flying to Michigan for a cousin's wedding. (gotta love portable DVD players!) This movie suprised me for being a 'B' movie. I ended up crying in the airport baggage claim waiting for my parents and aunt to arrive. This movie is about what it's like in high school for kids who aren't 'popular'. Many people don't realize how our actions affect those around us and how reaching out to someone can change their lives. People want to feel accepted and just because they don't fit into the cookie cutter mold of what they should look like or act like doesn't mean they aren't valuable. The differences in others is what makes life exciting. People can add things to your life that can be unexpected. Take my husband for example. You couldn't find two more polar opposites! Sorry eharmony but you'd have never matched us up in a million years. But guess what? We are what makes the other a whole. He is what I am not and I am what he isn't. Though it makes for some knock down drag out fights...ha ha...we have broadened our horizons so to speak because of what the other has taught us. This goes with friends. Don't be afraid of what others think because when you 'grow up' those things don't matter any more. Get outside your box of comfort and reach out to those who could use a friend. Don't forget, while you're thinking "If they wanted to talk to me they would" they're thinking the same of you. So YOU make the first move! It's hard, but can change a life, including yours.
