Happy Feet Message....

I took the kids to see the new movie, Happy Feet, last night. For those of you who haven't seen this movie, it is about a group of penguins in the Antartic who feel singing is the basis for having a supply of fish to eat. One little penguin cannot sing but he has the gift of dancing. He is considered an outcast in this group. He decides to find out the real reason for the decline in fish...which he learns is 'humans'. It is kind of cute how he gets humans to notice him by dancing. He then works on getting them to learn how they are causing a food shortage for penguins.
Now, my 7 yr. old Alex, who sat next to me didn't seem to get this message as clearly as me but I think it was important for all of us to see that environmental issues are important to everyone.
And the biggest lesson?
One person CAN make a difference!
Stop by and see
