And I Think To Myself....

The first time I recall hearing WHAT A WONDERFUL WORLD I was watching the movie Good Morning Vietnam.

I was so moved by the story about Adrian Cronauer (a real guy), a DJ sent to Vietnam during the war to help build the morale of the soldiers. The best movies are always the ones that have a little bit of everything: the tragic comedy. This movie does not fall short of those conflicting emotions. War is such an ugly thing so the contradiction of war-images and the beautiful song, WHAT A WONDERFUL WORLD, just pulls at the heart strings.

We live in this kind of world -- so much anger and hate yet there is so much beauty and so much to be thankful for.
