A Quote for Thought

Yesterday, I went to see Robin Hood.

I honestly had no expectations of it surpassing my love for the Disney version.  A talking fox and various other forest creatures?  It’s not easy to beat.

However, I am happy to say that I was pleasantly surprised.  Russell Crowe can be Robin Hood whenever he likes as far as I’m concerned.

But this is all completely irrelevant.  Back to the point.

The movie had a quote that I have had stuck in my head like a bad 90’s pop song.

“Rise and rise again, until lambs become lions.” 

It was on Robin’s sword, and I love it.  More than I love Panera’s fuji apple chicken salad.  [Which, mind you, is a LOT]

It means never give up.  Never.

And I think it’s perfect for us, for this trip. 

The majority of us are fairly new at everything we have been learning.  The video, the journalism, the theology, it’s a lot for anyone to learn.

We’re little lambs.  We’re learning.

And we’re taking what we learn, and using it in such a powerful way.

In the Dominican, I think we’ll become lions.

No matter what obstacles we encounter, we’ll overcome them.  In one way or another, we will succeed.  And I am so excited to watch it happen.

So bring it on.
