One of the most memorable scenes in 300 occurs when King Leonidas yells, “This is Sparta!” He then promptly kicks the Persian messenger down a cavernous well. Chaos ensues; the Spartans kill the remaining Persian messengers. The scene seems somewhat illogical unless one is a Spartan (Shouldn’t the Spartans have allowed one of the messengers to survive?), but the sentiment of the king’s cry and act is all too familiar.*
The* other day, I received an email from a woman who said I was inspiring. It was a nice thing to hear albeit a little surprising. I’ve never taken the time to ponder whether I’m inspirational. I simply do what I am meant to do and hope that some people enjoy it.
