A glimmer of HOPE and a Movie review-

First the Glimmer of Hope! Michael Steele was finally elected as Chairman of the Republican Party!! YIP YIP YAHOO!! He is the guy to watch! Sorry if you aren't Republican but let me have my minute of optimism! We haven't had much of that lately as Conservatives.
"You cannot bring about prosperity by discouraging thrift. You cannot strengthen the weak by weakening the strong. You cannot help the wage earner by pulling down the wage payer. You cannot further the brotherhood of man by encouraging class hatred. You cannot help the poor by destroying the rich. You cannot build character and courage by taking away man's initiative and incentive. And you cannot help men permanently by doing for them what they should do for themselves." Michael Steele

If you didn't get the chance to see "City of Ember" in the Theaters, now is your chance. The movie begins as something terrible is happening to Earth. At first I was expecting the "global warming-we ruined the earth" lecture, but luckily, the filmmakers spared us that tired old story line and left it up to our imaginations what exactly might be happening. We just know that mankind had to be moved into the center of the earth to a city built to sustain life, the city of Ember. Many, many years pass and now the city is starting to fall apart also. The citizens are concerned about what will happen to them if their generator or light goes out and they are left in the dark. Bill Murray plays the current Mayor, who like most politicians, is only looking out for himself. He is great in the role. The hero's of the movie are played by Saoirse Ronan, as Lina Mayfleet, and Harry Treadaway as Doon Harrow and they are the characters who try to save the city before the "light" goes out for good. They believe that the "builders" wouldn't have built the city without a way out and so they try to find the way. The movie is exciting, suspenseful and entertaining. I think children over the age of 8 years old will enjoy it also. Any younger and it might be too intense for them. The movie is produced by "Playtone" which is Tom Hanks' company and the special effects were done by Walden Media who have done the "Narnia" movies among others. We really enjoyed this movie and I think it is a great movie for adults and children to enjoy together.

Anna and I loved it. I was a bit scared by that mole monster though. Our YW pres. used the part about the light in her New beginnings talk. Where our true source of "light" really is from. She said it much better than my writings. anyway good job posting this movie.
