Homage to Human Potential | Daily Prompt: Worldly Encounters

The friendly, English-speaking extraterrestrial you run into outside your house is asking you to recommend the one book, movie, or song that explains what humans are all about. What do you pick?

Book: I am the Messenger by Markus Zusak

Song: “Stand” by Rascal Flatts

Movie: “Quartet” (2012) directed by Dustin Hoffman

The book, song, and movie speak about disregarding where the character is in his or her life and starting there, making a turn or going wherever to begin anew. They are odes to choices and homage to human potential, no matter the age, time, or place.
