YOU IS KIND, YOU IS SMART, YOU IS IMPORTANT
Oh, be still my heart. I finished The Help last Saturday morning, so I could watch the movie with my mom and sister! I was supposed to go with them Friday, but sis had to babysit for a sweet family. We went to a matinee on Saturday and I walked out feeling uplifted with selfless tears in my eyes. Go see the movie...you'll see!
I love the book, and as always recommend reading the book before seeing the movie. You always know more background. There were subtle changes to make it flow in the movie, but the point was clear. We are all people, and we all matter!
My favorite part was when Aibileen would say, "you is kind, you is smart, you is important" to sweet Mae Mobley. It broke my heart and tears would fall each time, but it was so special to see that relationship between the two.
If you haven't read the book, read it! It's worth the 400+ pages!
I also love that the author, Kathryn Stockett, is a Phi Mu! Check out the article here!
