On a day when my industry for the last 17 years is reeling from news that a reporter and photographer were shot dead by a colleague during a feature live shot, I decided to go where I always go to escape from reality - the movies. And I'm so glad I did. It helped take my mind off the violence and sadness for at least a little while. I went to see a small movie with a great cast that I think will grow bigger with time. It's called "She's Funny That Way." Though the whole movie made me smile, there was one part, in which the lead actress, Imogen Poots, quotes Audrey Hepburn. Leave it to the classy, elegant, amazing Audrey Hepburn to put life into perspective in such a lovely way.
“I believe in pink. I believe that laughing is the
best calorie burner. I believe in kissing, kissing a lot. I believe in
being strong when everything seems to be going wrong. I believe that
happy girls are the prettiest girls. I believe that tomorrow is another
day and I believe in miracles.”
Of course, this can't take away all the pain and hurt the people, who knew the victims, are going through, but perhaps it can bring a little hope and a little joy to others, who are so affected by this tragedy. We have to believe that tomorrow will be a better and brighter day. It just has to be.
