HOW DOES A NATION LEARN FROM 'the Help'?



If you think you know what it was like to be black in America in Martin Luther King’s days, you will very likely have a whole new perception after watching The Help. You will most certainly have a whole new appreciation for the valiant character of The Help in hard, unfair and demeaning circumstances where caring for the children of certain prejudiced, cruel and sometimes negligent parents who employed them often overshadowed their own needs and overruled their own desires.
In The Help a young woman (Emma Stone) who had been raised by one such caring nanny becomes interested in journalism and with the help of two black maids (Viola Davis and Octavia Spencer) she determines to tell their story in a book called The Help, which stirs the conscience of a nation while rattling her city to its foundations, especially rattling a certain very prejudiced employer, played by Jessica Chastain; nannies get fired, and children cry after them.
This movie adds humor to a serious history lesson; and my thoughts are that many of those same children, who were taught to believe in themselves and were cared for by The Help,  grew up to become champions for their cause and ultimately for the case against discrimination. (Ephesians 6:7-8) Hallelujah! ♥

IN HUGO A BROKEN OLD MAN IS SAVED BY A BRAVE BOY


I watched Hugo this weekend – a heartwarming story about a boy (Asa Butterfield) who becomes an orphan and finds a father in a broken old man (Ben Kinsley); but first he has to fix him. Am I talking about the boy or the father? You will need to watch Hugo for yourself to find out. But I will tell you that his trail is fraught with danger on every side from constables to child services. The triumph of the story resides in a lost dream that is recovered because a boy, who has been forced to resort to stealing to survive, risks his freedom to return an automaton to its rightful owner. (Deuteronomy 22:3) Hallelujah! ♥

AN OPEN LETTER TO MY SON

Michael, none of us went as far as you did to try to rescue a helpless woman. You have suffered greatly, and even now you are incarcerated. Your vindication will come swiftly.
"How blessed is he who considers the helpless; the LORD will deliver him in a day of trouble. The LORD will protect him and keep him alive, and he shall be called blessed upon the earth; and do not give him over to the desire of his enemies.
The LORD will sustain him upon his sickbed; in his illness, You restore him to health." Psalm 41. Thank you Jesus! Hallelujah! ♥

God speaks to us day by day in heavenly arrangements. The song, Assembly of Dust_04_Arc of the Sun (Feat. Mike Gordon of Phish) came with my new laptop. I thought this part of it added so eloquently to the charm of it all. Make yourself at home we've been expecting you, we've been waiting for you to arrive, black and white images encircling you and tracking the light from your eyes raising you high like the arc of the sun.
I changed 'raising your high' to 'raising you high' because there's no 'high' like the MOST HIGH.
For promotion cometh neither from the east, nor from the west, nor from the south. But God is the judge: he putteth down one, and setteth up another.Psalm 75:6-7 KJV Hallelujah! ♥

FLORIDA, ARE YOU READY FOR HURRICANE MICHAEL?


What will ‘Hurricane Michael’ bring to the shores of Florida in the year 2012, geographical coincidence, or certain judgment?
In March, 2005, my son, without telling anyone went to Florida. His objective was to rescue Terri Schiavo. In July of that same year, he turned 21 in a cold and lonely Clearwater jail cell, where, among other things he was made to sit in a chair for 25 hours straight, and like Terri, went without food himself for 7 days.
In his bitterness and in his desperation, he prayed that God would send a storm to where he was.
To most this was simply a legal matter. To me the ‘People of the State of Florida vs. Michael Mitchell’ became a ‘Declaration of War’.
If Governor Bush himself had tried to bring Terri so much as a cup of cold water to wet her lips he would have had to bring the National Guard with him. That, for all practical purposes, would have meant ‘civil war’.
I said, in a letter to the Public Defender, “There is a Wonderful Counselor who has never lost a case, and in the end He will vindicate my son.”
After more than a year behind bars, Michael is free on probation because the Public Defender was true to his word, and I thank God for that.
But the thing about hurricanes is that when they are particularly devastating, their names are retired and they are given new names. As I left Florida, I heard a radio announcer say that one chosen in 2005 was ‘Michael’. I have not been able to verify that information, but Wikipedia does say that Hurricane Michael will rise from the Atlantic in 2012. A co-incidence? Read Michael Mitchell - Criminal or Rescuer and decide for yourself. How far do you go to save an innocent woman’s life?
