Its a movie and not necessarily representative of real life; its about the
potential we all within us. Regardless of our personal problems we can always
take time to uplift/help another while we are on our own life's journey.
It is so very unfortunate that in a world that desperately needs the light of
kindness and optimism, it seems that sometimes even those Christian journalists
who should be focusing on endorsing those characteristics seem to feel that in
order for their work to be reputable, they have to demonstrate cynicism. Of all
people in the world, LDS should believe that finding Christ's light in
ourselves and experiencing the power of God fanning the spark of goodness in
others into a roaring blaze IS POSSIBLE. Not only is it possible, but it is to
be pursued. And if anything is capable of completely changing someone's
life, it is that all-encompassing inferno. Of course this movie is realistic!
Of course it can be experienced by ALL of us! God has promised that we can feel
this flame if we just let the little seed, that little spark of hope and faith,
bloom within us. If this movie seems implausible to you, please reassess what
is going on in your own heart and please, please make sure that you are open to
the possibility that God really can change lives, even through a simple letter
to an unknown teenager.
The Letter Writer movie has a message that EVERYONE should follow. I hope this
movie was real life. We need more caring people, compassionate people, loving
people in our lives to address make the toils of mortality. I hope the young
lady who wrote the film review reconsiders her comments. This movie should be
hailed as a KEEPSAKE. Wish it would have been nominated for an Academy Award.
