This summer I read the book The Help.  I read it on our week of vacation in the Wisconsin Dells and every time someone in my family asked me if I was enjoying the book, I’d say, “it’s totally ticking me off.”

But I kept reading.

Last night I went to see the movie.  It’s very true to the book.  And once again it absolutely ticked me off.

The injustice of it all is more than I can honestly process.  I cried my way through the book and I cried my way through the movie.

I believe this is a movie we all should see.  I should trouble our hearts because the way people treat one another sometimes is just downright wrong.

I’m grateful for how far we’ve come in race relations, but the reality of what has been and what still is grieves my heart.

Have you read the book or seen the movie?  What were your thoughts?
