Befriending the enemy

Would you befriend your enemy in order to get something that is very important done?

I watched movies based on true stories with caution. Why? Hollywood and movie makers have a way of stretching and adding to the truth. As a movie watcher, if really interested in knowing the facts, then research them. 😉

With that said, I was remembering the movie, The Schindler’s List (no has nothing to do with the above statement). In that, Oscar Schindler, played by Liam Neeson, befriends an SS officer named Amon Goth, played by Ralph Fiennes.

In order to help some Jews escape and live, he had to undermine the word and meaning of friends. To do that, he had to use the person that held the destiny of innocent people in his hands.  I am happy that he did, and in the end, people lived. 🙂

Which brings me to another question, to accomplish something, to get something that you want, will you do it by any means necessary?

Old With A Smile. For the next 31 days in March, greet an old person with a smile. Stop and chat with them if you want. Pass by and say hello. A few seconds can mean so much to some of them. 🙂
