The Power of One

Posted by Dori Nottingham



So my freshman year in college I watched the Power of One. With my new found Independence and collegate ideals I had adopted it as my favorite movie. It inspired me and I played the soundtrack every Sunday for two years. When other people hadn't heard of this movie I told them to rush out and rent it. Recently, I had decided to re-watch the movie. After all, it has been more years than I would like to think. I went to BlockBuster and low and behold......they didn't have it. The kid with huge gages in his ears and obscene tongue ring looked at me like I was from mars. I politely thanks him but told him that his life could change it he watched the movie. The old collegate sarcasm has got the best of me.

I'll more than likely purchase the movie and add it to my small collection. It is very inspirational and makes your heart soar. I admit that until I watch it again, the movie isn't fresh in my mind. However you never lose a feeling you felt. Tonight is movie night. Maybe it's available at your blockbuster.

I have never seen this. Perhaps I should check it out.

I checked the library website and it had several listings including a DVD, but I'm not sure if it's the same one. http://catalog.dpls.lib.or.us/search/a?a
