Cinderella Man

Since I find myself using movies to remind you all about the pro-life message, allow me to continue the scream by recommending Cinderella Man which recently came out on DVD. The true story of James J. Braddock, the boxer from Bergen County, New Jersey, is one of the really great movies released this year. In fact I would rank it as the best movie of 2005. The story underlines the reason why we in the pro-life movement continue to fight for life when the power and the money and the apathy scream at us to quit. You save one life and you know why you are here. You stand up against the odds and you encourage others to stand up to defend their way of life. You live in the truth that you are made in the image and likeness of God and that you are a person.
As a father, Braddock did whatever it took to keep his family together. I won't tell you the most powerful moment of the film, but it hit home to me as a dad what it is all about to be a man.
So this weekend, if you haven't seen Narnia, stay home and rent Cinderella Man. It will be more satisfying and more powerful than the fare Hollywood is currently offering up.

one other note.

I set up another web log to discuss issues that are directly related to the pro-life work of Arizona Right to Life or are best suited for another venue. Called Jakubczyk on Common Sense,the blog will comment on other subjects. I hope you check it out to read what I have to say on other socially relevant subjects.
