The Lady on Blu-ray DVD

The Lady is a wonderful gem of a movie based on the true life story of Nobel Peace Prize Laureate Aung San Suu Kyi. The film starring Michelle Yeoh is a powerful account of the love between herself and her husband as well as her love for her native land Burma. Her father was killed in 1947 during his own fight for Democracy in that country when she was 2 years old. The devotion to the concept of Democracy by the principle character was not lost on this viewer. Her continued efforts to bring about Democratic Reform by peaceful non resistant means is a must view for those who think the power to create change is always brought by military force. Another important characteristic of this story is the willingness and sacrifices one individual makes for Democracy when so many in our world take for granted the concept of the power of the people.

In life there are often heroes that make sacrifices for the people. Aung San Suu Kyi has been one such an individual. Her willingness to be dedicated to the things she believes in provides lessons for all people, whether involved in the political process or a person of faith. Individuals like this can be role models to take ones faith and beliefs to new levels. Are sacrifices required, for the person of faith, specifically, those of us who call ourselves Christian? Absolutely! Remember the words of Jesus on the issue of sacrifice, ‘If you are to be my followers, you must take up your cross and follow me daily.” (Luke 16:24) The Lady is a wonderful example of what it means to take up ones cross daily. It is something all people, from all walks of life can learn from. I know I have been challenged and if you watch this movie, you will be as well.
