“Wherever you see tragedy, you see bravery too. Wherever you see ordinary people in need, you see extraordinary people come to their aid.
Today is Red Nose Day and people who are giving their hard earned cash to people they’ll never meet, who’s pain and fear they’ll never feel and want to fight.
So it’s not romantic love that is all round, most people still everyday, everywhere have enough love in their hearts to help human beings in trouble.
Good’s going to win, I’m actually sure of it.”
– The Prime Minister (Richard Curtis)
Today’s quote comes from the brief follow-up to Love Actually that was aired as part of Comic Relief in the UK last Friday. One of my favourite parts from the original film was the speech Hugh Grant’s PM made, and Richard Curtis did it again here. Obviously when it was written Richard Curtis couldn’t have known that the UK would fall victim to a terrorist act just 48 hours before this was screened, but that just made the speech even more meaningful – and having been on Twitter at the time I certainly wasn’t the only one who seemed to get something in my eye at that point…
Have a wonderful Thursday!
