Movie Watching and Knitting
Last night I had a "Knitting in Front of the TV Night". I had checked out "The Last King Of Scotland from the library right before Thanksgiving and just got around to watching it, so I could return it today. It was a good movie and I can see why Forest Whitaker won the Academy and Golden Globe Awards he won for it. It left me with that feeling of "Oh, I wish I hadn't seen this." It was pretty disturbing to go back and remember the reign of this man in Uganda. Although I don't think we got that involved with things going on during this time, it left me with thoughts of how much the United States has always gotten involved in other countries, when they have problems. Now that we are having a few crisis here of our own I hope that other countries will hold back their criticism of us and do whatever they can do to help us. Just a thought.
