"The Blind Side" Provides Much Needed Inspiration

If you haven’t seen the movie, “The Blind Side” yet, then you have missed out on an inspiring story. I remember seeing the movie, “Rudy” as a child and taking away the message of never giving up on your dreams. “Rudy” inspired me, and that rarely occurs in modern movies. Then, comes “The Blind Side!” It finally offered me that inspiration that I felt with “Rudy.”

I do not want to give away too much of the movie, but the plot of the based on true events story is Leigh Anne Tuohy (Sandra Bullock) and her husband, Sean Tuohy (Tim McGraw,) taking in a homeless African American teen, Michael Oher (Quinton Aaron.) Michael had been traumatized by society, school systems, his drug addicted mother, drug and violence plagued neighborhood, and the foster care system.  A caring family is all this young man needed to have the will and desire to succeed in life, hone his skills, and become a productive member of society.

There are all too many children that grow up just as Michael Oher did, but are never lucky enough to come across their Tuohy family. “The Blind Side” should inspire us all to remember these children and do our part to help them find and reach their goals.

I'll make it easy for you. Here is an Amazon link to buy "The Blind Side" right now!
