The Pursuit of Happyness

Last night I saw Will Smith's new film, "The Pursuit of Happyness". It's based on the true story of Chris Gardner, a bright, well spoken African-American man who struggled through poverty in the early 1980's in San Francisco to raise his young son on his own.

This film will make you laugh and make you cry. But more than anything it will make you think - about adversity, about modern-day poverty, and about how relatively easy so many of us have compared with those amongst us who don't. This film has motivated me to forever stop feeling sorry for myself and take advantage of the huge benefits that have been given to me in this life. Highly recommended!
