It's human nature that we tend to focus on the problems around us. I do it too. I do too many Point of View editorials polishing the rough side of the stone. Not enough noticing the wonderful things around me. So allow me a moment to share something special with you.
Earlier this week I was invited to see The Kentucky Show at the Kentucky Center. It is an inspiring, entertaining movie – about 30 minutes long – that celebrates Kentucky as the first western frontier through the Civil War up to the present. The photography is just gorgeous and I'll tell you what: it makes you proud to live in Kentucky. It's also exactly the movie you should take your out of town friends and relatives to see. But it's not a movie just for tourists. Everyone will experience new things about Kentucky whether you've lived here for one year or 100.
A lot of people gave their talents to make this movie happen and the result is spectacular. It is showing every day of the week except Monday, every hour on the hour from 11 o'clock until 4.
I have no financial stake in this movie, nor am I on the board. I'm just a guy who thinks that sometimes we've got to find a beautiful little oasis and focus on that for a while. The Kentucky Show is a wonderful little oasis.
I'm Bill Lamb, and that's my…Point of View.
