Drinking And Driving: Is it really worth you and your children’s lives

Read The Sign, Really Read it

Read The Sign, Really Read it

I happened to watch this movie called (Crossroads; A Story Of Forgiveness) Inspired by true events. Where teen racing kills wife and child. Also, I want to mention the story of Actor Paul Walker. These are very sad stories. So I want to say this: if you don’t value your own life, then at least value your kids lives, because they should not have to pay the price for mistakes made by adults and teens. Grownups are supposed to teach their children, the difference between right and wrong. So; if you think about it this way. Children see and adult do something they’re  not supposed to do, then they will think that it’s OK  for them to. I have seen many parents do that.

So basically if you want your children to learn from right and wrong, then don’t do something that you don’t want your kids to do. Because children will follow your lead and will not think twice about it until after the tragic results.

This also goes for talking on cell phones while driving to, because it only takes a split second with your eyes off the road to cause a serious accident.

These are statistics of accidents by Motor Vehicles. Check out the website http://www.census.gov/compendia/statab/cats/transportation/motor_vehicle_accidents_and_fatalities.html:

I want to say that these statistics are way to high.

True stories

If any one likes to watch ghost stories and war movies. I recommend these movies to watch. Now, I am not a big fan of war movies, but this movie was excellent. If you are one of those that can not watch ghost movies, I suggest watching at your own risk, because this movie exceeds every other ghost movie I have seen.
Like I said these movies are true stories. So last night I was flipping through On Demand movies to watch and I found this movie called Ghost of Goldfield, and The Ascent. Anyway, The Ghost of Goldfield is about a hotel located in Goldfield, Nevada and there are five students who go to this hotel to help this student do a thesis for her Psychology class. This girl looks like the dead ghost of Elizabeth, the bartender looks like the guy Elizabeth had an affair with, one of the other kids, look like Elizabeth’s husband, also the girl who is doing her thesis is the younger version of her grandmother who betrayed Elizabeth by telling her husband about the affair she had and that the baby was not his. It gets really ugly. The Ascent is a true story and it’s based on Prisoners of War with the Germans, British, and Africans. This was an excellent movie to.

Back in those days Goldfield was very well-known for their gold and then the town died after this happened at the hotel. Now in the movie The Ascent, I am curious about something that I had noticed and that was that the prisoners shirts had a dark patch on the back, does anyone know what that meant.

If only I could give this movie 10 starts, I’d give this movie 10 stars! Undoubtedly the best animated movie of 2012, or probably since Wall-e. Truly, they saved the best for last, and the best way to end 2012 is watching this movie, full of hope, fun and surprises. I have never loved an animated film like this and it truly amazed me. Also, this film works best with IMAX or 3D, and it never let my expectations down, it gave me what I wanted, entertainment. What I like about this film is it played along the children inside it’s audience  That wonder with Santa Claus, Tooth Fairy, the Easter Bunny, Sandman and Jack Frost, they all blended together and assured the audience they are real and are here to guide us and bring joy to everyone. They all represent hope, wonder, dreams, memories and…

Inspiring Movies, and Books

I have some more interesting  and inspiring movies to share with you .        

  • Duke- An inspiring movie about a man who was injured while in service and when he came home to his family, a dog had become part of his life and gave him hope. Till one day he didn’t want to burden his family so he packed him and his dog in his clunker camper and went to live on the streets. Till one day he thought the dog was dying and dropped him off in front of the vets and asked that he be put down so He wouldn’t suffer. Well this vet so that this dog still had some life in him and saved the dog. The she put ads out to find the owner of the dog, and when the daughter saw the ad, the family and dog were finally reunited.

You Lucky Dog

  • You Lucky Dog- A young lady returns home for her mother’s funeral to find out that she needs to save her home, and decides to stay and fix things. A sheep herder got rid of a dog who would not do the job he is supposed to, so this young lady took this dog and worked with him and entered into the sheep herding contest, and they won, and then the real test was that not only did everyone think the dog was worthless, but he ended up saving a camp counselor and some kids from a forest fire.

  • A freshman father- a young man who finds out his girlfriend is pregnant and does the right thing by marrying her, they move in together, she has the baby, and when she thinks that the baby doesn’t like her because he won’t stop crying for her, but only him she decides to leave and in the end she wanted to give the baby up, but he insisted on keeping the baby so when they went to court, he finally got custody. He struggled to keep up college, raise his son and his job, with obstacles always in his way until the dean of college realized that he would go places because he worked so hard at school, work and raising his son.

  • Accidental Friendship  This is a true story About a cop who befriends a homeless women and her dogs. She brings food for her dogs, and then helps her to find a place to live and get her life together and ends up getting married to.

Undercover Angel

  • Undercover Angel  Her little girl plays matchmaker to a lonely freelance writer and her mother and if I remember watching this movie it is based on a true story

Across the Great Divide

  • Two kids set out across the Rockies to claim a piece of property before it is too late. When they meet a Man who is a gambler and helps them to get where they want to go and has then changed this mans ways of living in the end.

Heartland

  • Heartland-  Where a dairy farmer faces ruin brought on by European law and fights for the injustice of the system

These were really great movies to watch, and they are like really inspiring, because in these movies, if there were more people like these in the world, we would be living in a lot better place, than we are now. I think that in our world, I am sorry to say, but it is all about greed and how everyone is going to make their next dollar, and that is very sad .
