Well, I saw a television commercial for the upcoming movie "A Walk to Remember," based on the novel of the same name by Nicholas Sparks. The TV spot concerned me, so I went onto the Internet looking for the longer trailer. I found it here. You can watch it yourself, but after reading the novel, I'm afraid that Hollywood has gone and royally screwed up the movie.

The central theme of the book, is Jamie's faith and her relationship with God. In the book, Jamie is mocked and ridiculed at school because she is always carrying around a tattered, old Bible. In the trailer for the film, she appears to be carrying around astronomy charts.

I'll go out to see the film when it comes out, but I have this feeling of dread. Hollywood has taken a great movie about God, the power of prayer and love and turned it into just another teen movie without the moral underpinnings of the novel. What made the novel great and so popular was Jamie's Christian faith. That appears to be gone, and without it the movie is going to be one big disappointment.

When Everytown, Giffords and others describe states like CA, NY, and NJ as having the best gun control laws in the country, but then say those gun laws are still way too weak, they are giving away their endgame. Full bans of most (if not all) of civilian owned firearms. https://twitter.com/MorosKostas/status/1526261684712615937
