Ray

I just watched the film ‘Ray’ this evening and would thoroughly recommend it. The name Ray Charles was new to me, but some songs were instantly recognizable. The film taught me so much about things that didn’t happen that long ago, especially since some of the things happened in Georgia, my current home. People like Ray definitely helped make the world with live in today, and when the state publicly apologized and took on his song for the state, it was a touching moment. Suddenly lots of things that you see on a daily basis click into place.

The other side of the story was seeing a man on one side growing into success, and yet at the same time, completely failing due to drugs. His wife was so strong and forgiving. Again, a lesson to us all.

Well worth the time to see, but definitely a film to educate, enjoy then contemplate.
