Friday Night Movie – “Inside Out”


This is a great flick that shows us what goes on inside us all and in particular Riley a young girl who has her life turned upside down due to a family move. Amy Poehler, Bill Hader, Mindy Kaling, Lewis Black and Phyllis Smith provide voices for this Pixar presentation.

Things Aren’t All That Bad

I find it interesting that people say certain things are destroying our country when in reality the things they defend do much greater harm. The people who complain a lot are the ones who see others getting the rights and privileges they have exclusively enjoyed. People feast on fear of things that are different and we all know what fear can do to a person. Yes things aren’t the way they used to be and change is a fact of reality.

We pick the wrong fights about things that really don’t matter in the grand scheme of things. I am not big on doomsday but prefer to have hope for a brighter tomorrow. Fear not is a common theme throughout scripture and maybe we should just chill out. Maybe we should work to be better and not bitter when we don’t get our way. My friends everyday is a new opportunity to make things better for everyone, not just a select few. The freedoms you have are the same freedoms people are struggling for elsewhere. Yes there are people who seek to do us harm but the best way to counter that threat is to live our lives and to share love, not hate.

Things aren’t all that bad. Don’t worry, be happy as Bobby McFerrin once said.
