Like Pieces of Glass…

Movie Quotes, The Green Mile
The first time I saw The Green Mile I cried like a baby during the scene this quote is from. Everyone always asks me why I don’t cry at the end & what is it about this part that sends me into a blubbering mess.

The answer is simple. I relate to what the character of John Coffey is saying. I’ve felt the exact same way my entire life. It’s something I’m powerless to change. Yet, I hope someday, together, maybe we all could. That might be part of the reason I said “yes” to the whole Bloggers for Peace movement when my good friend, Rarasaur recommended it to me.

It gets me every single time.

This post is part of the Monthly Peace Challenge: Quote This. I’m proud to be one of the first few Bloggers for Peace. Now, as we slowly draw to our last quarter, we stand as a colossal group. I’m grateful to know all of you. I’ve made some lasting friendships with a lot of you. There will always be a corner of my heart that shares your struggles and rejoices when you triumph. Love fully and always. If you need a shoulder to cry on, you know where to reach me.

  1. J. I LOVE this film and this quotation. I wish John existed in real life, so I could interview him for my Compassionate Men Interview series. Thank you so much for being one of the first Bloggers for Peace. One day we will look back in awe of what we have created. {{{hugs}}} Kozo

    1. He does exist. There’s a little bit of him in every sensitive person. 😉

      & I’m already in awe, Kozo. Just like you once said to me – we never know who is reading our blogs. For all we know, we could’ve stopped a violent incident, or prevented a suicide, or even something as small as making someone think twice about saying something hurtful. Although a small step, it creates a domino effect of better outcomes.

      It’s a powerful thing, this brainchild of yours. I hope it sends out streams of peaceful vibes to every corner of the Earth. 😀

  2. Thank you for the link love. I haven’t watched this movie in a while but I do remember being moved more by other parts of the movie than the ending…

    And I love how intuu you are. Since you know Rara, I know you know what that is 🙂
