What I’m Reading (March 3)

The allure of beautiful weather has been pulling me away from reading to enjoy photography, neighborhood jogs, and sunset hikes over the past few weeks. There’s nothing quite like the first hints of spring. When we had our first warm day here in Connecticut, it was all people at work could talk about. God’s creation is truly amazing! I struck me that, even though we live in a culture where people are easily bored with things they’ve experienced before, the changing of seasons still ignites excitement and wonder.

Fiction & The Sanctity of Life: Thoughts After Reading About “Me Before You”

Several months ago, I was scrolling through Facebook when a movie trailer caught my attention. The actor who played Finnick in Mockingjay sat in a wheelchair and smiled at a pretty girl. Even without turning the volume on, it was clear the man in the wheelchair and the girl were falling in love. I smiled a little and moved on.

When I mentioned the┬átrailer to a friend, she told me the movie was sparking a lot of controversy. The story (which I haven’t read or watched) depicts a newly wheelchair bound man and his female caregiver falling in love, but the ending has a big twist. The man decides to end his own live via doctor assisted suicide.
