For this long four day weekend, we watched "Up" from Pixar and "Slumdog Millionaire." They are both inspirational movies. The movie "Up" reminds you of those dreams you want to accomplish one day in the near future or now if you could, however, life gets in the way of those dreams and you keep pushing them back until they become possible to achieve. Just like this weekend! We were set up to do one thing but when one of our dogs and one of our girls got sick our plans change and our money went to get them well.
I asked John what his dream was, he said to go Europe. Mine is to live near a beach, not by it, but at least 15 minute drive to it. This movie is for all ages to watch! I know John and I were touched by it.
Slumdog Millionaire reminds you how good we have it here in the States. No matter how you live, you still have it better than people in India. What I got from this movie is that honesty can carry you far. It's a hard movie to watch because people are treated worst than rats just because they live in slums. -Sandra.
