This being a season of chocolate and eye candy (Gotta love Rom-com month) it was so refreshing to see a totally different kind of love on the big screen last weekend. Big Miracle had it all, the adorable boy next door (Jon Krasinski – eek!), fun characters based on real people, and WHALES!!!!
We could go on and on about how the trailer made us cry, and the movie was everything that it promised to be… but we are not a blog about films. Instead we want to point out how love played an integral part to this true story.
Without giving away too much, we can say that this tale of a family trapped, their will to survive, and the affection that the world felt for them is touching to say the least. We left feeling more aware of how connected we are on a global and universal scale. Everyone needs help and feels fear, so we should be there to support those that are in need of a lift, and appreciate when we can stand on our own.
Life is hard, love is harder. Being open to hurt or disappointment is scary for a lot of people, but once you take a leap of faith the benefits vastly outweigh the risks. For those of us that are lucky enough to have someone that helps us get through the bad times, make sure you let that person (or pet) know how much they mean to you. And when you see someone or something that needs saving, listen to your heart and lend a helping hand.
Go see it for yourself! Take the whole family!
