One of the great cinematic moments in film history. Look how the director (in this case, the phenomenal director who also happens to play the lead role) juxtaposes the poignant close-ups of two mere mortals… two criminals – one hardened, one virginal – with the sprawling, wide-angle vista of mountains, sky…. of… eternity.
Enjoy the clip from one of my favourite all-time films, Clint Eastwood’s “Unforgiven”.
And now. Come back to reality.
Tonight, three terrorists are dead in the most horrific terrorist attack in France in more than 50 years. Four hostages, murdered in cold blood.
And two nights ago in Billings, Montana, police officer Grant Morrison took the life of Richard Ramirez. And wept uncontrollably on the hood of a unit vehicle.
Tonight, give your loved ones a kiss. Get on your knees and thank God you are able to do so.
Because… what does tomorrow bring?
