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.
