Have you been to the new restaurant?
Have you seen the new Batman movie? I know you will like it. It reminds me of you.
I don’t need to waste time watching a movie that mimics the one I am starring in. I’m on set every day so, why do I need to watch a fictional charter fight an adversary when I am battling real demons every day?
The movie “Red tails” was a story about the life of the Tuskegee Airmen. At the time there were only two remaining. After the movie, the former pilot walked out crying and said; “They got it right.” The story about his life, they got it right. I’ll watch the movie when it is about me.
I spoke to middle school students and the following week I received many thank you cards. One that stands out in my mind was from a girl who wrote; “When I am older and have a family of my own, I will tell the story of my meeting Will Smith. Not the actor, but the famous one who beat kidney failure.
Star in your movie and before you pass away watch it, walk out with tears in your eyes, and say, They got it right.”
