One Week

I watched this quiet little independent movie last night.  As it begins Ben finds out he has Stage 4 Cancer on a Friday afternoon and he doesn't know how to react.  He is told go now, seek treatment fast.  He is told with treatment he has a 10% chance of recovery.  Ben isn't ready to be sick yet.  You see like many with that dreaded c-word he doesn't feel it.  Ben feels fine however he knows what they intend to do to him to cure him will make him feel very sick.  Instead of beginning treatment the following Monday he heads west through the Canadian countryside looking to have an adventure.  I liked the ending.  No, I adored the ending.  It is wisdom for all of us.  We all need to hear this and we all need to remember the quote on the chalkboard..."To strive, to seek, to find and not to yield."
