Night of the Living Dead (1968)

So as we know, the barrage of horror flicks has been going off like crazy on our television sets for the month of October. They bring back nothing but odd memories, welcomed memories, but still things I seldom look back upon. Most particularly this movie. I put it in the back of my mind for several years, but here it comes... looming back into my life early on a Saturday morning. Black and white figures running the dark, this is one of the places where I started.
I'm not looming on memories past. That was three years ago, mind you. I just to like to remember where I come from. I remember when I first met my boss; Mr. Bowen, he told me something his professor told him when he was in management school. The teacher turned to the class and said "Now, how many of you are democrats? Okay, now, if you're all here, chances are you're here to succeed. You're going to do great in life, then you're going to forget where you came from, just like I did. So chances also are, you're going to be republican in time."
And maybe this isn't necessarily concerning partisan affiliation, especially considering the fact I am going to register as a democratic - it's a matter of self. Who was it I used to be and who am I now? Don't become two different people, I tell myself. Remember where you came from.
It's a judgement call, really.
We shouldn't put so much importance on "staying true to our roots," especially since people tend to have a skewed view of what those roots are.
I just try to be better. Become the person my dog thinks I am, haha.

We see things differently through our eyes. Remembering where you came from is good but it doesn't necessarily be a happy thing for everyone.
