The Grey

I just recently watched the new-ish movie, The Grey, starring Liam Neeson and I can’t stop thinking about it.  Cold, hard, unflinching. Beautiful, graceful, loving.

The movie is about a group of oil workers whose plane crash-lands in the frozen wilderness. For me, it worked as a standard adventure/thriller, but so much more as a personal survival story. Ultimately, it’s a showcase of the human spirit.

I don’t think another movie has resonated with me as much as The Grey did. I found it deeply personal, on many levels, but I don’t want to ruin any plot points if you haven’t seen it yet.

Now, if you have seen it, allow me to dig into why it affected me as much as it did:

It feels nice knowing there’s a film out there created just for me (of course it wasn’t, but I can dream). See it. Now.

    Each of us are Special
    Each of us different,
    No one is the same
    Each of are us are unique in our own way,
    Those of us who have challenges, we smile through our day.
    It doesen’t matter what other’s say
    we are special anyway.
    What is forty feet and sings? the school chior
