The Rain on our Parade

BY PAMELA BOWMAN – MESA, ARIZONA – We drove Wistie to college this week. For part of the trip, Wistie and I sat in the back seat and watched one of my favorite movies, FUNNY GIRL. The first ten minutes the audience discovers the story is about a young girl going out to make her dreams come true. I couldn’t help smile at the irony. I love that movie! “Don’t tell me not to live, I simply got to! If someone takes a spill, it’s me and not YOU. Don’t rain on my parade!” Love it, love it, love it!

Of course the next day I woke up and found the Mesa Tribune has splashed the FilmZambia project all over the front page. Thank goodness for the internet and the ability to respond via email to their online paper!

So, even though I am enjoying the coolness of this college town, I am feeling a little hot under the collar. Someone is raining on my parade and now the world knows it. Thank goodness that there are so many friends offering us umbrellas! After all “People, who need people are the luckiest people in the world!”
