“If you look for it, I’ve got a sneaking suspicion…”

Ten years ago, our generation witnessed an event that would forever change the lives of Americans. Following the attacks of September 11, 2001, many Americans were full of feelings of rage, anger, sadness, grief, and an assortment of other emotions that words cannot even begin to express. Many people felt hatred and wanted revenge for what happened to our people, to our country, and on our soil.

On November 14, 2003 the film Love, Actually premiered in the United States and would perhaps bring hope and love back into the hearts of some Americans. If you’ve seen the movie, you know what I’m talking about. If you haven’t, here is a clip of the opening scene:

The film tells the story of different individuals who are at different ages, stages, and levels of their lives. The theme of the movie is, as you may have guessed, love. Some characters fall in love, some fall out of love.

In this day and age it’s easy to get caught up in the the drama and violence that surrounds us. It’s easy to turn a blind eye to the beauty and joy in life, while only seeing the negative that exists in this world. Let us take heed in the message of this film: “…Love actually is all around.” ❤

  1. This really is one of my favorite movies – and even though it’s supposed to be a Christmas movie, I could watch it any time. Hugh Grant and Colin Firth don’t hurt my desire to watch it either! 🙂
