My family and I often enjoy “family time” watching television and movies. Let’s face it, it’s kind of our thing. One would almost say, it seems like we’ve seen every movie out there. It’s not true, and I don’t have the memory to prove it. It’s interesting because my husband and I are polar opposites, he loves horror/thriller/scary movies, where I like funny, yucky love stuff, and my kids, they love music, dance, and sometimes yucky love stuff. But we all get together, with blankets of course, got to get cozy and we’ll watch a GOOD movie. Whether it be a comedy, action, or even documentaries. There’s like this thirst for knowledge and understanding we want to impart on our children and they, for the most part seem interested.
Next Monday, February 29th (Leap Year), we’re going to be watching the Global Premier of He Named Me Malala, 8 pm EST/7 pm CST.

It amazes me that other places around the world don’t have the same opportunities. These are basic rights and privileges here in the United States. Yet, they’re against the law in other places. It also is an eye opener for my children that one thing they take for granted, other girls have to fight to be able to do it. I’m so inspired by the strength and courage of others. Such an empowering message to stand up for what you believe in.
