Railroad Man, a true story,brought forth a new meaning to forgiveness. Immediately I thought if Palestinians were required to see this film before they came into Israel they could finally turn around their beliefs, about hating the Jews so much . If Israel, and Russians/Ukrainians,China/Tibetans , EVERYONE in the world saw this movie, with a discussion after, we could make a first, initial step in eliminating war and hatred. I was astounded the profundity and understanding of forgiveness that Firth gave to the world in his portrayal of Eric Lomack. This film feels like a blessing to teach the world about a superior alternative to how man treats his fellow man and especially how nations, people view WAR. I think if you can afford to buy a copy do it and send it to school with your child, to sports that your child goes to, in other words, take it from me see it, explain it, and talk about it.
Did I say PLEASE? Listen to me , you can call me bossy and no I am not his mother, but I could be and I could be yours.

In the late 70’s my family went to the poor house and they didn’t take me. I hadn’t a clue, and my Mother told me my car was too dented to go as she didn’t want the neighbors thinking any the worse. It must have been the worse because when I came home from school they were gone. Not a word of farewell, no wonder I had an inferiority complex. I was even too inferior to go to the poor house.
Hey wait this is the potato famine story.
This reminds me of a favorite song “and when the taters need spraying, I bet you’re praying the bugs jump off the vine and when you go fishing I bet your praying the fish don’t bite your line.”
If they came back they would gloat and gloat because they were right. just laying in the sun. Just laying in the shade. How was I gonna get my cornmeal make. This is an oxymoron because it comes in a box.
I learned to swim backwards. I could make a quick spin and I was first in line.
Never make a cent, didn’t hear a word I’d say. That’s WHAT Jeannie AND mom WOULD SAY. I might be a lot younger but I know a cent ain’t even worth a dime, because Mac Donald’s never charges the penny. And I learned playing deaf is a lot of fun. Just remember keep that glazed dazed look on your face and you got it made.
