THE BEST MOVIE EVER
18 January 2018 | by apostleacarsonSee all my reviews

This is one of my absolutely favorite movies. I try to watch it every time I find out it is coming on television. A genuine inspiration to me because I was diagnosed with Sickle Cell Anemia when I was 9 years old. The doctor told my mother that I would never live to be 18 years old. When I was 17, I became severely ill and was unable to walk for a long time. I bless the Lord because I am still alive and an avid Advocate for Sickle Cell Warriors. I am trying to get more awareness of this movie that was filmed when people did not consider those of us who suffer daily with such severe pain. The Writer: Lawrence Roman is to be commended. There must be a story behind this. I preached a sermon one time: "Behind Every Glory, There Is a Story!" Still hanging on at 70. Sidney Poitier was the first Movie Star I saw in "Lilies of the Field!" I do wish I could have met him, because he made such an impact on my life.
