Bar Bulletin question: What is your favorite inspirational book, movie or podcast?

"As an avid football fan with a soft spot for the underdog, ‘The Blind Side’ is my favorite inspirational movie. This story provides a fascinating look at the journey from intense adversity to incredible triumph. It highlights not only the importance of our own hard work, self-discipline and determination, but also the kindness, caring and compassion of others."

"‘Still Alice’ by Lisa Genova was a book I recently read for my book club and it touched me in so many ways. This book made me cry and, at times made me wonder why I was reading it. However, it also shed light on a very important topic and brought the reality of Alzheimer’s to life. I just lost my grandmother who suffered from Alzheimer’s for a long time and this book helped me to understand her battle. It changed my perspective and allowed me to see the world in a new light. I am glad the author pursued her journey to write this book, despite being told it was career suicide."

"‘The Pursuit of Happyness’ is a great inspirational movie. I think that at times we can all take the little things for granted. This movie always reminds me of how blessed I am. The strength, courage and determination that Chris Gardner displays is inspiring. ‘Don’t ever let someone tell you that you can’t do something. Not even me. You got a dream, you gotta protect it. When people can’t do something themselves, they’re gonna tell

you that you can’t do it. You want something, go get it. Period.’"

"One of my favorite movies of all time, ‘Good Will Hunting,’ is one that has inspired me from the first time I watched it to the fifteenth. It is one of those movies that you always get something out of no matter when you watch it or where you are in your life. Among many of its messages, the movie teaches that you should be true to yourself, that none of us are perfect and most importantly to give your life meaning."
