A true sign this year has affected the way I see the world: I woke up this morning and thought, “I want to watch a movie while I eat breakfast.” So, after scanning through HBO, I found the wonderful “Bicentennial Man” and decided on watching that, since I haven’t seen it in a while. As I’m watching it, I noticed the recurring theme of privilege and how the rights one has are defined by the people in power, not by one’s self. In the end, my first thought was, “hmm, this would be a great movie for discussing racial issues that still permeate our world.” Never would I have thought of that before my year. I realized what I had done and shocked myself, wondering to myself, “what has happened to me?” I don’t say that out of disgust, just surprise. If I’ve been changed this much in 2.5 months, how much more am I going to grow in the next 8.5? I’m excited to find the answer to this question. Until then though, may God bless you in all you do.
