The blind side is a film that has inspired me to do what I thought I couldn’t. The blind side is a film Based on the true story about Leigh Anne and Sean Tuohy who take in a homeless 17 year old African-American, called Michael. Michael has no idea who his father is and his mother is a drug addict, which is the main reason why he is in foster care.
Whenever Michael is placed in a new home he runs away. He has had little formal education and few skills to help him learn.
One day Michael was walking in the rain with nowhere to go and Leigh Anne saw him and she took him home to live with her family. When he expresses an interest in American football, she goes all out to help him, including giving the coach a few ideas on how best to use Michael's skills. They not only provide him with a loving home, but also hire a tutor to help him improve his grades. Michael, despite where he came from, despite him being homeless, and despite him having nothing, he was able to achieve his ‘impossible’ dream.
He was a homeless 17-year-old boy, with little or no education, and, with the selflessness of Leigh Anne he became a professional NFL player. I find this film truly inspiring because no matter what, its possible for your dreams to come true.
My dream is not to become a professional NFL player, however it is the message of this film that has given me the will to do what I want to do, and to follow my dream, this film made me believe that it is possible to achieve your dreams. This film is also really inspiring because it isn’t some lame made up film, it’s a true story, and this is the element of the film that I personally think made it truly motivating. Because any one could have just made up a story, but that’s not inspirational, how can we be inspired by something that hasn’t really happened?
Yes, its ok to have a story that’s completely made up but inspiring, however its difficult for us to relate to it, its difficult to believe that it could happened...
