I loved that movie- altho it was unbelievably sad and made me cry in the end.
think it's probably one of the most influential movies of this time.
After that movie came out- a movement was started. When the world was
going crazy with hate and doom and destruction- but somehow in the
middle of the chaos, somehow someone found the strength to do a kind
deed for someone to make their day better. And in turn, one day that
person remembered that good deed and how it made them feel and they
wanted to pass that feeling on to someone else- so they did- and then
the same thing happened- and pretty soon people were watching these good
deeds and wanted to do the same- and so they did.
you never know when going thru the drive thru or standing in line at
the grocery store if someone in front of you has decided to Pay It
Forward and pay for your purchase for you. Or put money in your parking
meter for you so the meter-maid doesn't issue you a citation. Or maybe
be the person who buys a meal for the homeless person on the side of
the road holding the sign- or hands the traffic officer a bottle of cool
water on a hot summers day. Or maybe it's the guy who pulls over in the
pouring rain to help someone repair their car- or offers to give the
mom and the kids stranded on the side of the road a ride home- or offer
to let them use their mobile phone to call someone to come get them- and
then stay with them til their ride arrives- just in case.
And these acts are remembered- and in turn, passed on to someone in the future.
Like ripples in an ocean.
It gives me hope for humanity, after all.
