Slumdog

Tonight I saw the movie, the one about the millionaire.

You know, there is something different about seeing a movie set somewhere you have been. Something different about seeing a movie set where you are.

I couldn't help but think, during the movie, that if I were at home I wouldn't think as much about it.

But the truth is, it made me think more. Because all of the things that would have seemed strange if I weren't over here, seemed everyday and normal.

Perspectives change based on experience.

I loved loved loved the movie. The culture and the setting were so plain to see. So real. So true. So heartbreaking.

Excellent line.

Lailani - Wholeheartedly agree!

TC - Thank you :) It was one of those ones that just came out, unexpectedly. Those are the best.

Actually, it's what you said. I just agree with TC.
