"He Come Into His Manhood Today"

As I sat watching the television version of Lorraine Hansberry's "A Raisin in the Sun", I was honestly in awe. First, the acting from each of the principle character's was phenomenal. Just phenomenal. But what had me in awe was something that I didn't get when I saw movie version back in 9th grade. I learned 2 lessons.
This time while watching the movie, I learned lessons about understanding and love. As I watched the movie, even though I knew what was going to happen, I kept wanting Walter Lee to just do the right thing. But I was still thinking, "he's just going to mess up the money from the insurance payment". Even though Lena knew what Walter Lee planned on doing with the money, she still gave it to him. She gave it too him because she understood that a man has to at least try to realize his dreams even if the whole world knows that he's going to fail. But a man's pride is one thing that he must hold on to when he has nothing else. Lesson Learned
The other lesson I learned about was when to love. Lena told Beneatha that she has to love someone most when he's at his worst. I can fully understand how Beneatha felt when it seemed that her brother had let the family down. I really can. She didn't want to have anything to do with him at that point. I've felt that way about people that disappointed me in the past. But Lena reminded me that you have to continue to love the people who do things that disappoint you. Lesson Learned.
I'm truly happy that I was able to see this movie at this time in my life just before my 30th birthday. I have a lot more lessons to learn and I need a reminder of what's important sometimes. And I thank God for sending me reminders every now and then.

I'll Post Something Soon

I swear that i'm going to post something soon. I just haven't had the energy to do anything lately since work has been kicking my butt.

But I will tell you that I have decided to buy myself a Flat Panel LCD TV for my birthday. But i'm going to shop around for it for a while so that I can be sure of what I want. So I may not end up getting it until after my birthday.
