Why do I cry when I watch a movie like We Are Marshall?
For me, it's two-fold:
- I'm deeply moved by the talents and the skills of the people who create and bring us such beauty.
- I feel connected to the fact that human beings can do anything.
The individuals who did what they did at Marshall are human beings like all of us. And when moved by a cause, it really feels like anything is possible.
In times of hyper adrenaline, we can do amazing things physically, things we didn't even know we had in us. I feel like that unknown power is also available in our spirit and it doesn't even needs stress to manifest.
When I watch a movie like We Are Marshall it's just so clear that ANY of us can do great things. I'll admit that when I watch it, there's a part of me that is hard on myself for not, in my mind, tapping into that capacity.
I guess that's part of my process.
