While reading Push, a multitude of emotions overcame me…anger, sadness, hurt, and hope. I was angry and sad because of the realization of what this young woman truly had to endure. Feelings of hurt came because in some way, I wish there was something that could have done to help prevent such a thing from happening in the first place. Finally, I was hopeful because I realized that by telling Precious’ story, she is helping so many others overcome (and hopefully prevent) similar situations. Push will help someone make a total turnaround, by turning tragedy into triumph.
If you haven’t read Push, please make it part of your reading list…and go see "Precious"!
