We have many ways of bringing family values back into our world. Building our families is the best way of course--taking that time to invest in them and love them.
But, we can send a message to the powers that be that we want our children to be seeing great, moral, heroic, inspiring stories. We send a message by attending the movies and showing that we will support the efforts of those in Hollywood who are willing to listen to us! Dolphin Tale is just a sweet children's story, but it also shows an under story of a child who is failing at school who comes alive when he has real life problems to solve, real causes to get behind. He comes alive because his heart is captivated by the idea that he can do something, even as a child, to help.
Be sure to see the story, ask your children questions about the movie and it becomes a very profitable day. Enjoy and let me know what you think.
So excited that even the LA Times quoted Nathan about the need for Hollywood to do more great movies. Here is what they said:
Nathan Clarkson of the Homeschool Movie Club urged his followers to "make a statement to Hollywood to rally behind movies that 'get it right' and tell great stories without all the junk, twaddle and moral compromise!"
How fun that the Los Angeles Times quoted Nathan, my wonderful son!
And, Nathan, praying for you and hoping this is the best of days and your work is rewarding to you.
Great Friday to everyone! And thanks so much for the support!
