Forrest Gump As My Spiritual Guru
The lines “Run, Forrest, run!” are etched in public memory as one of the most memorable scenes of cinema history, when young Forrest Gump, upon being chased by bullies in a car, runs a ‘Roger Bannister mile’ breaking him free from his prosthetic leg. He never stops running as the movie would follow. And that’s perhaps one of the greatest lessons for a human being. The character looks, to a mere observer, as a low IQ level individual who made it big everywhere by mere flukes.
