Also recently i've been spending a lot of time in the library studying and stuff. And when i was in there a couple days ago i got the hankerin to watch The Shawshank Redemption (its on cable all the time catch it if you've never seen it) which is a great flick. But of course i don't have it and if i did it would have to be edited and even then i couldn't watch it in the library. But then i remebered that its based off of a short story by steven king. so i went and found it and started reading. its only 100 pages so i finished it in two days or so just reading when i went in (never checking it out). Let me just say that i would love to recomend this book to you ONLY IF:
you aren't grossed out by graphic descriptions of violence.
if descriptions of violent homosexual acts wouldn't ruffle your feathers.
and if you aren't bothered by extremely accurate representations of prison language
so admittedly it might not have been a very prudent choice of reading material as far as virtuosity goes but homosexuals attempt to rape angels in the bible and heads are being cut off everyewhere in the Book of Mormon. Yes i know its all rationalization but let me tell you that RITA HAYWORTH AND THE SHAWSHANK REDEMPTION is one of only two books to bring me to tears. Its message is one of the most beautiful things i have ever read and i am not ashamed to admit that i shed nigh on two tears in the EAC library i was so touched. Here is the heart of the book;
Remember, Red. Hope is a good thing,
maybe the best of things
and no good thing ever dies. Andy Dufresne
There are some things no one can take from you. They are in your head and in your heart. No matter how much joy is sucked from your life, or how much agony you may be called to bear still in your mind you are free. The darkest prison cell can't take away your light. The power of music, beauty and your own will to survive can never be destroyed and though you be cast into the crushing blackness of the jaws of Lucifer (or maybe its just a stressful day) you are, in the end, a person. and every person has something about them that seperates them from the animals. it is the light of Christ, it is a conscience, it is called many things. It is well summed up as; HOPE.
