I just watched this movie on TV, and have to do a post! What is great about this movie is the reminder that someone believes in you! And when someone believes in you incredible things can happen! In this movie Michael is a kid from the projects who is taken in by a wealthy family. All of sudden so much is possible! He is playing football, making good grades, and getting scholarships to colleges. It was always possible - he just needed the push and drive! Michael needed someone to believe in him!
Sandra Bullock as the concerned mother
So it makes me wonder - who believes in you? Who pushes you, and expects excellence? Is it your parents, a teacher, a leader in the community, or a friend? Whoever is pushing you in your life - hold on to them and thank them! You are so lucky! If you think you have no one - you DO at BTW! The administration, staff, and faculty love you so much, and want the best for you! That is why at BTW teachers expect so much of you, and have high standards. We want the best for you! We want you to follow your dreams, and have the life of your dreams!
Your life is your life. You make it what you want, and in high school you will make decisions that will impact your adult life. Just know that I'm behind you - your biggest cheerleader wanting you to accomplish all of your dreams and goals! I saw Charlize Theron on an interview recently and she discussed helping kids in South Africa. She said she came home thankful because circumstances worked out for her. She is an Oscar winning actress making millions! She was reminded that circumstances don't always work out for everyone. We are blessed - how are you going to use your life?
