Hidden Figures

My family and I recently went to see "Hidden Figures" which is based on the untold true story of three women who overcame racial and gender barriers at NASA.

Elijah (10) said when we left the theater:
 "That was a movie I could really relate to!"  :)

When I asked him what he found he could relate to most about the movie he said he liked how the women stood up for what they believed in.  What a great source of inspiration this should be for all of us -- to stand up for what's right and make a difference in our world.

Check out History vs Hollywood (after you've seen the movie of course!) for a comparison of the movie and real life.  Katherine Johnson -- the main character in the movie -- is currently 98 years old and says of the movie: "It sounded good...  It sounded very, very accurate."
