What Waits for You?

If you haven’t seen the movie 127 Hours starring James Franco, I encourage you to take the time to watch it. The movie is the real life story of Aron Ralston, a man who found himself trapped by a rock that fell on him while he was alone in a canyon. Ultimately, Aron had no choice but to break the bones in his arm so that he could cut it off and free himself. He made this decision after many days of being trapped and realizing that he either must sacrifice his limb or die in the canyon. Aron finds himself alone and trapped for a variety of reasons. He didn’t remember to bring his cell phone. He didn’t have large quantities of food or water because he wasn’t planning on anything longer than a day trip. He didn’t tell anybody where he was going and hadn’t kept up communication with key people in his life. The most important thing that Aron realizes is that all of his previous life decisions led him to that canyon alone and facing death. In fact, he felt like the boulder had been waiting for him since the moment he was born. Read more
