No really...ever since I saw this movie I cry everytime I hear "Its So Hard To Say Goodbye". Can you imagine watching a bird's funeral on Martin without tearing up? 😭

This movie gets you emotionally invested from the beginning. By the end of the movie it leaves you thinking "damn it didn't have to go down like that but it's not implausible that it did". This movie is real good story telling.

I give it a 4.5/5

Have you seen it? Any tears left? What do you think...hit or miss?

I want to live forever.⠀

I definitely identified more with Preach throughout #cooleyhigh than Cochise because like him, I found myself looking beyond the typical into the wild fantasy of making it as an alternative. When I think of living forever, it draws me to creating a legacy and being known for something. Through your legacy, you live forever.⠀
-⠀
Though the ending was unexpected, the slice of life provided at the end paralleled with today’s stories which in my mind allows Cooley High to still be relevant throughout the times.⠀

Something from my writers chest beckoned, so I dug through it yesterday evening.

A quarter century old, a little water damaged but intact.

My high school newspaper, Metro-Lites an issue from April 1993.

Near North Career Metropolitan High School, which is the school that replaced Cooley High School from the movie of the same name (cult classic). Nestled in the heart of the "notorious" Carbrini Green housing projects.

There is always an incredulous tone/gasp when I tell people my high school was in the "hood". It was here where I met some of the best people in my life.

I remembered how proud my family was when I went through a metamorphosis from being an omnipresent discipline problem to... The Editor of the High school paper.

I kept this because I needed to remember who I was.

I remember thinking at the time that I was going to be a world famous Journalist with a couple of Pulitzer Prizes to my name by the time I was 27.

I am not.

Shun P. Writes here... DOT COM has a modest following, but I'm not world famous by any stretch of the imagination.

You see... I lost my way and I wandered in the wilderness, I stopped writing and forgot that which redeemed me.

I thought the 3 piece suit defined me, but truth be told it devalued me.

My forthcoming book is about that journey.

People who will malign you.

Those who will assassinate your character before it has a chance to blossom.

Those who smile behind clenched teeth that conceal venomous fangs.

But.

Love, Love, Love... Is redemptive and it is exponentially powerful when concentrated through the prism of Family.

Searching for and finding my Ancestors - those shoulders I stand on gave credence to my path, informing me as to why my faith didn't lose me - even though I lost it.

Losing your way isn't the end of the journey, but instead it is part of it.
