See Hanna run!

This is the most profound spiritual truth I know: that even when
we’re most sure that love can’t conquer all, it seems to anyway.
~ Annie Lamott

My sister, nephew and I went to the movies yesterday to see Hanna, a teen who was raised by a guy who acted like a combination of James Bond and what others have deemed a home schooler gone bad. it isn't until the end of the movie that I found out who Hanna was or why she had to keep running. But that didn't make it any less enjoyable.

What stood out to me was that in the midst of a scifi action flick, there were tender moments Hanna experienced with people she ran into on the road. I'm not talking about her attempt to date. Yikes. But friendship was explored and loyalties and , yes, love.

In the midst of what goes on in life, even when things get tough, the adage the tough keep going is tossed about. That's true enough but sometimes we forget how acts of love carry us, from unlikely places.

We're thinking a sequel will be happening or maybe a TV series.
