“Courage is NOT a Man with a Gun in His Hand.”-Atticus Finch in To Kill a Mockingbird
I know I’ve read Harper Lee’s To Kill a Mockingbird4X; twice for myself and one each time my two kids had to read it for school. I remember first reading the book as soon it was released and then, of course, seeing the movie (watch the trailer); loving the movie and swooning over Gregory Peck. He was so very handsome and you couldn’t help but think that he truly was this humane, loving father, Atticus Finch.
Today Mr. Peck would’ve been 97 years old. May He Rest in Peace! What movies did you love Gregory Peck in? Remember “The Man in the Gray Flannel Suit?” What about “A Gentleman’s Agreement?” Both movies are relevant today! To Kill a Mockingbird will always be relevant! Have you seen the 50th Anniversary Edition?
Gregory Peck worked very hard for Civil Rights and for bringing the Vietnam War to an end. He embodied that though he lived well when he became successful, that surely wasn’t enough; he had to do good and help others!
