movie recommendation: Waking the Dead

S and I got a movie the other night that I very much enjoyed. It was called “Waking the Dead” and starred Billy Crudup and Jennifer Connelly. It was a geuinely emotionanlly touching movie; the scenes didn’t feel contrived to pull at my heart strings. I also identified strongly with both of the characters who were trying hard to make a difference with their lives in very different ways.

Something that I have been thinking about lately is a statement that Roberts made in my history class. Several times during our history different political powers have risen and fallen. These bloodless revolutions are something that we take for granted in this country, but in much of the world change of that sort only comes with people dying. Recognizing the benefits of the ways that we do things despite all the problems is an important perspective to me.
