If you have yet to see the 2013 movie, The Impossible, it may be worth your time. The movie, based on the true story of an English family in the 2004 tsunami, offers much more than entertainment. Here are some of my take-aways:
- Never, never take anything for granted. Life radically changes in the blink of an eye.
- In preparation for the unexpected, be your strongest self every day. Others are counting on you.
- Never give up. Hang on to hope.
- Be generous and caring even when your life is at stake. Generous (no strings attached) people make a big difference in any circumstance.
