​THE POST (THE MOVIE)

Posted by

There’s quite a bit of Oscar buzz around the new movie ‘The Post’ which tells the story of one week in 1971 that was an important time in our history.

The movie recounts the Washington Post’s fight to publish the Pentagon Papers which included highly classified information regarding America’s involvement in the Vietnam War; including that the US government knew that the war was unwinnable, years before it ended. A Vietnam reporter for the New York Times got wind that there was information being hidden from the American people, and made efforts to publish this information. Nixon tried to stop the presses, but in the interim, the Washington Post began publishing its own articles- a decision led by Katherine Graham who was the only woman to be in such a high position at a publishing company. This decision ultimately improved the credibility of The Washington Post- and on June 30 1971, the Supreme Court ruled in favor of the media, giving them the rights to publish whichever parts of the report that they deemed newsworthy.

The message of this movie is both timely and relevant. It is terrific template of the way that men and women can and should work together, and sends a powerful message about equal rights. It is a lesson in standing up for the truth- the cost of it, and the importance of it- especially in today’s climate.

​ON GRATITUDE

I don’t think it’s possible to discuss the subject of gratitude too many times. If anything, we need constant reminders to notice the good in our lives. Sometimes it takes a tragedy to get us feeling it (there’s certainly enough of that going around)- but really, we just need to pay closer attention.Going through the motions day in and day [...]

WATERMELON!

National Watermelon Day is on August 3rd and at this very moment, I’m still deliberating if it’s a day that should be celebrated. And I’ll tell you why: because I have a love/hate relationship with watermelon. Not because I’m flaky mind you, but because watermelon can be so unpredictable! Sometimes I think it’s the best fruit ever created- it’s sweet [...]

​LET’S TALK ABOUT JULY

Just a few short months ago, July seemed to be ages away. But you know what I’ve discovered? If you stop counting and watching and waiting, time actually passes quite quickly. It’s like what happens when you walk away from the kettle and just let it boil. It’s amazing how things can actually happen even when we stop watching. [...]
