II Freestanding II

In my opinion, the majority of the world ,including myself, have placed limitations on themselves for various reasons. One of my reasons for liking the movie “Forrest Gump” is because Forrest does, mostly, whatever he wants without hesitation. The randomness of the movie is a result of his impulsed actions. Although Forrest does silly things out of misunderstanding, he shows me that there is no set way of thinking.

What started out as a “little run” for Forrest turned out to be a run across the country.

  1. It’s interesting that you downloaded the video version of the GIF, vs. the .gif file. It’s cool that the video still works and auto embeds which I believe is a new feature of WordPress (my way of saying I didn’t know about it).

    You should do a little digging on how Forest Gump was popularly interpreted by conservatives in the 1990s as well as Gump as fixer of the ‘sins of whites.’ There’s a lot going on in that movie that piques people from a number of sides.
