Movies with Morals

November 12th,

Today I went to see the play “To Kill a Mockingbird” with my sister-in-law, brother, and mother. I was grateful for this time with them (and my mom paid for all of our tickets, compliments of her company 🙂 It was a two and a half hour play and so wonderfully directed. I love this play (and movie and book) for many reasons, but mostly because of the lesson it delivers, that is, the importance of equality for all races, that there is no justification for segregation, that the right thing to do does not warrant violence; the boldness of a white person to stand up and defend a black person during that time period was remarkable. The actors and actresses did an amazing job and I enjoyed that time with my family. “To Kill a Mocking Bird” has always been one of my favorite movies. Anytime, injustice is challenged and someone takes a stand against it, it really connects with me. So I was not only grateful for that time with my family, but also for the lesson I was reminded of.
