Day #27 - January 30, 2010 - Life is... Precious
Have any of you seen this movie?
Saturday night we went to a friends apartment for a game night and then came home and watched Precious. And, O.M.G!!
The first 10 minutes had tears in my eyes. I had no idea what this movie was about. John's parents had bought it and let us borrow it and it was not what I was expecting at all. I can't believe some of the stuff this teen went through; illiteracy, incest, 2 pregnancys, abuse, HIV... WOW! It really put my life in to perspective and how good I have it. It reminded me of the students I have at school... I know of several who have gone through very similar situations and I'm sure many more are dealing with this as well and we just don't know about it. So SAD!
The movie is rated PG13, but in my honest opinion it is a bit much for a 13 year old! I definitely think it should be rated R. If you have not seen this movie, go watch it!
