Many of you may have seen the trailers for the movie by Pixar/Disney for Wall-E and thought, "How cute…"
Wow! (to quote Wall-e himself)This is a VERY sobering film on the state of our nation and the world wide epidemic of obesity that plagues us and opens up the possibility of a diabetic epidemic even larger than life.
It is a cute movie, beautiful love story and a big hoorah for the underdog. It also touches on some very hard to talk about things. If you have kids or friends that you fear are headed down a path to destruction thru poor diet, computer addiction, indulgent lifestyles and lack of exercise…take them to see this film. There are many many more political, social and economical statements that are made in it as well. It is one that I will be adding to our family library of DVD's.

I'm glad you got to see it. Yes, it is very eye opening. There is a lot to that little movie that got wasted because the media never covered it for what it was. I think it is a fantastic movie and gives us all hope.

There are hundreds of intertwined stories in it. I think it was so fantastic because it is a story that everyone can relate to on very many levels. Every person can walk away with a different life lesson, watch it again down the road and come away with yet another one. We are going to get it. It will be interesting to see what we see in it the second time around.

This came out this week on DVD, and if you did not get to see it, I recommend it highly, especially for kids who are struggling with weight and getting active. It really can touch hearts and inspire us on many levels.
