I don’t usually recommend any movies, but this time I’ll make an exception: Go see Amazing Grace! It’s one of the best films I’ve seen. I tend to dislike movies that I’m “supposed to like,” but this is one that really is worth seeing.
For those of you who haven’t heard, Amazing Grace is the story of William Wilberforce, one of the main English abolitionists. It’s a well-told story; even though we all know what happens, the passion of a few people to change a national dogma is beyond inspiring.
When you think about what one man accomplished…wow. It really challenged me to think about how many people I could help and what I could change with my life.
