This movie talk about a wonderful energetic black boy and a white girl whose path crossed at a very tender age. They were destined to become each others keeper, but life presented each of them with their share of challenges. As time passed, they grew up and they grew apart. It would be many years before they are united again.
All young Joe wanted to do is to become a warrior and save the world. Even at that young age, he knew he was one of a kind.
For any child, to grow up without your father is an enormous challenge. That was the story of Joe, but he found solace in the company of his grandma and new found friend, Sam.
Joe went to college and even finished top of his class in computer engineering, and had a job lined up for him in one of the famous tech companies, IBM. But before he could even graduate, Joe was handed eight years prison sentence.
This movie really made me cry. It is such a masterpiece and it made me to deeply reflect on God's love, friendship, and family.
A few things I have picked up from this inspirational movie;
Indeed love is the most powerful thing on earth that can do amazing things. There's truly enough love to go around if only we can begin to share.
Secondly, we all struggle to find the right path to take in life. It is not always easy to know what that is or where it would lead us. In the end, it is the people in our lives that provide us with the right balance to help us make it through.
That the future will reach each of us in different ways. sometimes it will take your breath away. Sometimes it may be different from the version you have planned.
But through it all, it is our faith in God that open the door for God's power to work in our lives.
