If you plan on seeing "Remember Me" and haven't, don't read this yet.

So, I went to see my honey Rob Pattinson (not to be confused w/ Pat Robertson, Jim) on the big screen in "Remember Me." Not once, but twice, since I went the 2nd time w/ my daughter. If you haven't seen it and want to, don't read beyond this point.
It was a very emotional movie for me. The end was really hard, and I actually had nightmares after the second time, thanks to some old post-traumatic stress from 9/11.
I know, you wonder how someone on the west coast got PTSD from something that happened on the east coast. I'm still wondering that myself, but it happened.
I know I'm rambling, but I loved the movie. I loved the story, the music, the characters, everything. I'm not going to continue because you need to see it. But I leave you with this question. What one accomplishment do you want to do if you knew that you had limited time left on this earth? Would it be something materialistic, something for yourself, or something for others? My new fav quote was quoted in the movie from Ghandi "Whatever you do will be insignificant, but it's very important that you do it." So....what would you do?

  1. I'll comment, since I LOVE to let everyone know my opinion.

    I don't think I'd do much of anything different. I have become a positive influence, or tried, on kids lives. I have lots of kids at different schools who know me by sight and often scream out my name. I have heard them tell others how awesome that sub is (me). I have gotten a few interested in drawing, and others interested in airplanes. Still others have read a few books I mentioned in class. I think that's enough for me. I think the important thing is to be remembered. I'd probably be a little self-absorbed toward the end. I'd want to travel.

    I remember Jim Coder every day. He touched my life simply by being my friend. I hope I have similarly touched others' lives. That's enough for me.
