A Remarkable Story

Some stories are beautifully written. Some movies have stunning cinematography. And then there are some stories that simply tell themselves.

Today I finished watching Defiance. It truly is a remarkable story; it is not the most amazing movie ever but the story is captivating.

It has a couple amazing sequences that shine glorious light and hope in the midst of such darkness and depravity. Two quotes stick out for me:
"Our revenge is to live. We may be hunted like animals but we will not become animals. We have all chosen this - to live free, like human beings, for as long as we can. Each day of freedom is a victory. And if we die trying to live, at least we die like human beings."
[paraphrase: in the midst of such suffering] The main character something to effect: "do you see it?.....the's beautiful"
O' how I want to cultivate a mindset to see beauty...the broken never lose hope.
