OZ - THE GREAT AND POWERFUL
This morning began like any other, or so I thought. Coffee in hand and remote at the ready for some news about the weather and latest celebrity gossip.....instead.... our eyes were assaulted with horrible scenes of the tragedy in Boston.
Desperate to shield my children from yet another ALL DAY VISUAL CONFRONTATION
of REAL LIFE
terror and horrors happening in our world, I decided to take them to the movies. PLEASE NOTE: The children saw the incident several times on the news, we did discuss it and will continue to discuss world events.
The movie of choice was actually PERFECT
for the events of today "OZ- The Great and Powerful". WHY?
The movie highlighted how we AL
L have the capability of being GOOD
. The journey took us on one of self awareness, personal belief, strength and courage. It showed how unity, support and goodness of human spirit can overcome bad. QUOTES
I might not actually be a wizard. Glinda:
Yes, but they don't know that.
Oz: You have nothing to fear so long as you believe. For when you believe, anything is possible.
Glinda: I always knew you had it in you.
Glinda: No, better. Goodness.
The quotes highlight how we look for leaders amongst us - not realising that we have potential to take the lead ourselves. Circumstances may require us to STEP UP and become THAT person.
ARE YOU PREPARED TO BE A LEADER?
