I adore the movie Steel Magnolias. Brian and I have so many 'one liners' that we use from this movie. Like, 'here, hit Weeza' or 'you're too twisted for color TV'. Our favorite, though, is when Sally Field's daughter, Shelby, is in a coma and during an emotional ourburst she begins yelling, "open your eyes, Shelby, Shelby, open your eyes, open your eyes!" Crazy as it might seem, we say this quite often. Whenever we are telling someone to open their eyes we always throw in there, "open your eyes, Shelby" I know, we are so weird!
Why do I tell you all this not so pertinant information? I am glad you asked. We finally watched Food Inc. and I am wanting to shout from the rooftops, "OPEN YOUR EYES, SHELBY!!!" We are being duped and we don't even realize it!
I am pleading with you to watch this movie with your family. Watch it for school if you home school. Fit it in whenever you can.
As you know, encouraging others to feed and nourish their familes well is a huge passion of mine, and I just know if you all watched this movie it would forever change the way you purchase food and feed your family. I think it is so vitally important to see where our food comes from! Please, I am begging you to watch this movie. I know many library systems have it. It is available on Amazon for a good price. You can even 'rent' it for only $2.99 on Amazon. I am sure video stores have this for rent. If I could, I would buy them by the box and send them to everyone I know. That is how important I feel this is!
Go to Food Inc. The Movie and watch the trailor.
Please let me know when you watch this or if you have any questions or comments! Please believe me when I say this is important!
