A Triumph of the Human Spirit

Sometimes, I need a lift.  Not just a ‘good time’, but something to remind me of others trials and tribulations in Life. And how they overcame them.

Life – It’s not just a board game or a cereal, anymore.

Being a fan of movies, I look to them as a source.  (We’re not talking Pauly Shore, here, people.)

I watched one last night.  The Great Escape.  A fine film in it’s own right, based on a true and sad story about men fighting for freedom.  What they endured, how they overcame, and sometimes were killed.

If you’ve not seen it, you should.  Or read the book.  (You Tube gives me nothing FTC!)

  1. It’s a great movie, and it’s about overcoming those who would hold you prisoner in your ‘place’…

  2. Most of those men were killed for their efforts, but not one of the survivors ever expressed any regrets. I hope there are human spirits like that in this generation.
