Dead Poets Society : 1989.

Not only did the iconic words of character John Keating, “Carpe diem, seize the day boys, make your lives extraordinary,” remain in my memory, but I continue to live by the phrases that were spoken in this film.  I live them through my writing, my actions, my every day speech is laced with the words that have changed my life. The shy character Todd Anderson evolved into such a dynamic character as he is faced with losing his best friend to suicide, understanding he is merely a shadow to his parents, and to finally standing up for what was right and what he believed in.  His character inspires me to continue to believe in myself, my writing, and the world around me.  He taught me we all have this confident and present “YAWP" that is living inside of us just waiting to be set free. If it wasn’t for this movie I’d be a very different person.  I owe my life to this movie.

And to this movie I say thank you, “Oh captain, my captain.” 

"Thank you, boys. Thank you."
