A Shirley Temple View of Life--The Little Princess
Oh, if I could just have the sense of faith that Shirley Temple has in this movie. The entire experience of managing an office move, fighting with the phone/computer companies and finding out that an honest broker is not to be found in today's world has shaken me. I believe the best of experience was meeting people who could and did step out of their institutional roles to help. People who rise up and help make things better are more heroic than is given credit. Perhaps because of the last two days when they stepped up to step in have been a lesson for me in the value of persistence and belief in myself. And perhaps a better belief in the heroism of peopl when they act individually instead of collectively.
