**-- HERE IS THE VIDEO TRANSCRIPT --** Make Your Peace With God. Hi, I'm Steve Weber and today's scene #15 is titled: Make Your peace with God. I've created this video series of the 94 best scenes and life lessons from the movie Forrest Gump to celebrate the 25th anniversary of this classic American film. Lt. Dan starts by saying, "Forrest, I never actually thanked you for saving my life." ... He didn't technically thank Forrest, he just acknowledged that he hadn't ever thanked him. Lt. Dan was a proud man. That was as much of a thank you as Forrest was gonna get. "Lt. Dan never actually said so, but I think he made his peace with God." Forgiveness. Lt. Dan was carrying the anger. He was mad at God. When he forgave God, he didn't have to carry the anger any longer. He made his peace with God. It takes Gumption to forgive. Whether it's forgiving others, forgiving God, or ourselves. Do you want to be more gump-like? ... Forgive. Let it go. Make peace with yourself, make peace with others and make peace with your God. Let's learn to live our lives with Gumption.
