328. Into the Wild (2007)
You don't need human relationships to be happy, God has placed it all around us.
The amazing true story of a young man who gave up everything he had after graduating from college to head west and then north to Alaska seeking adventure and freedom. I constantly remind my students to take walks and encourage a reconnection with nature. All of the PS3, 3-D Blu-ray, and Facebook in the world can never replace the feeling that you get standing beneath a canopy of trees listening to the sounds of the wind and the animals. My only problem with this story, is that the young man really takes for granted the amazing human connections he encounters along the way. In seeking what was important in life, he disregared much of the love shared along the way.
