A very poignant scene: The accused young man's most precious mother verbalizes to the detective (Jimmy Stewart) that she doesn't have any friends left if he walks out on her as he is her last friend. As the door closes and Jimmy exits you see an old world Catholic altar in the humble home as the accused man's precious mother says...I'm sorry I *do* have a Friend, *You* are my Friend.
Broke my heart. Touched my heart.
Fascinating movie, true story and family friendly, especially for those who like suspense, detective mysteries and justice. A good lesson of the system and how it unfortunately works when lazy and unrighteous men are involved, and how it can fortunately work at times with hopeful diligence and perseverance not to mention a praying, hardworking mama and an equally hardworking and just detective.

Hope everyone is doing well this fine Sunday afternoon! I've been busy making a skirt or two for a little girl who doesn't have a mama. No child that I know of is going to be called names if I can help it. Her grandma shares she does the best she can, buying simple tops and making sure the little girl's clothing is clean. When we hear stories like this from trusted and longtime acquaintances it really puts a light on things. ...But oh such Joy to put our Gifts to work! I may even draw a fashion illustration for the little girl illustrating one of the skirts...Yes indeedie...I think I will by George. Fashion illustration has always come natural to me and this will be the perfect chance to do one for God. It's amazing what we can do in middle-age as our talents re-emerge from our younger day so to speak. One way I could form bridges in highschool was sharing fashion illustration. ...So here we go!
That little girl has a friend.
I had fun with Goat-Goat and Clifford last week, more pics to come soon! They are so funny, like two little dogs!
That's life in the Forest and smalltown. Good afternoon, loves, Amelia
