I have heard of this movie " The Blind Side" Staring Sandra Bullock, and it was based on a true story about this man name Micheal Oher. You can read his life history and what happened when he met this man name "Tony Henderson" who helped enroll Micheal into Briarcrest Christian School..then Micheal being a homeless was adopted by the Tuohy Family, a christian family.
What captured my attention in this movie, unlike any other American Football true story movies is this - Tuohy a white family would willingly take a black boy into their family, wasn't only he of a diff race, he was from the ghetto of Hurt. Yet the Tuohy family had compassion on him, and soon came to love him as their very own.
Now while i was watching this movie, i realise the Tuohy family were really showing Christ like love and grace, acceptance and compassion. Forgiveness and second chances..and i question myself "am i able to do the same thing, if i had the means to do it to someone who is of the same race, let alone a different one?"
People, you all should watch this movie..
