The Blindside And Related 20/20 Special

Monika and I went and saw the movie The Blindside with Sandra Bullock and Tim McGraw this evening. Now I have to say that I’m typically not a huge fan of inspirational sports movies. I love sports and I love inspiration, but for some reason when the two get put together in film form I often find it to be cheesy.

However, I really enjoyed The Blindside and was able to follow the movie up with the 20/20 television special on Michael Oher. WOW, what a story!

It’s a thought provoking story and one that truly puts into perspective what really matters in life. But, If I am completely honest, I wonder if my heart is soft enough to take that sort of huge step.

Would I invite a stranger in need to come live with me?

It’s one thing to buy someone a meal or give a couple bucks, but to invite a person into your home is truly significant.

I’d like to think that I’d be able to do that, but I’m not sure.

What about you? Would you be able to invite someone you don’t really know to come live in your home?
