This week's Fun Monday was inspired by going to see a movie on Sunday. You know I don't go to very many. It's expensive and I generally only go to ones that NEED to be seen on the big screen (Harry Potter, Transformers, big disaster films and the like), but this movie that I saw today would be just as powerful on a smaller screen. The big screen just brought you in closer and made you a part of the story.

The movie I saw today was "The Help" and I went with someone who's lived it. She knew someone like everybody in that movie. And assured me that there are still places in the US where it is still the same.. today. It is, in some ways, unbelieveable that people could still be living these lives in this day and age. We are enlightened now, aren't we? Isn't that sense of being entitled just because we are white a thing of the past? Apparently not. Maybe that's why this movie is striking so many chords in so many people.
