Cindy and I saw The Pursuit of Happyness last night. I didn’t find it very entertaining, but it was very worthwhile. I felt uncomfortable as Chris Gardner found himself in uncomfortable circumstances. I expect a lot of people in San Francisco would have taken Chris Gardner in or helped cover his rent if they had known his potential. It’s a sobering thought to think how many people around the world have great potential but need a little help to get to the other side of the summit that divides successful self-sufficiency from dependency and inadequate food, shelter, and education. Chris Gardner is an exception.
