"Then the LORD answered Job out of the whirlwind, and said, Who is this that darkeneth counsel by words without knowledge? Gird up now thy loins like a man; for I will demand of thee, and answer thou me. Where wast thou when I laid the foundations of the earth?
"Hast thou given the horse strength? hast thou clothed his neck with thunder? Canst thou make him afraid as a grasshopper? the glory of his nostrils is terrible. He paweth in the valley, and rejoiceth in his strength: he goeth on to meet the armed men. He mocketh at fear, and is not affrighted; neither turneth he back from the sword. The quiver rattleth against him, the glittering spear and the shield. He swalloweth the ground with fierceness and rage..."
~ Job 1-4; 19-24 ~
Mercy! Do yourself a favor, as a matter of fact, do the entire family a favor and go see Secretariat ASAP. Sure, you know how it ends. That great horse wins the 1973 Triple Crown becoming the first horse to win since Citation won in 1948. Heck, there have only been eleven horses and riders to do so since the Triple Crown began in 1919 and it's been more than thirty years since Affirmed and Steve Cauthen won in 1978.
Seriously, I can't say enough good things about this movie. In a world gone crazy, then and now, it's filled with hope, love, laughter and joy; it's a wonderful "feel good" movie. I've never bought a DVD when first released but this will be the first, perhaps only, exception. Yep, it's that good!
Blessings ~ hope ~ love ~ laughter ~ joy ~ Secretariat ~ live rejoicing every day...yes, every day! ~
Grace and Peace,
