What Am I Gonna Do Now?
Lt Dan and Forrest are seated on the floor of the army hospital. Lt. Dan is now calmed down - or exhausted - from attacking Forrest in his sleep. He laments his future.
**-- HERE IS THE VIDEO TRANSCRIPT --** What am I gonna do now? Hi, I'm Steve Weber after 15 years sitting on the bench talking to strangers for Bubba Gump, I asked myself, "What am I gonna do now?" ... Well one thing I'm doing now is sharing the best 94 scenes from the movie Forrest Gump to celebrate this year being the 25th anniversary. After Lt Dan's outrage subsided, he lamented, "What am I gonna do now?" When we experience deep disappointment, we feel helpless. We feel directionless. All we can do is ask, "What am I gonna do now?" Lt. Dan was understandably in a very dark place. He felt he lost his identity with he loss of his legs. Forrest reminded him that he was still Lt Dan Taylor ... Lt Dan wasn't yet ready to hear that. All he could say was, "What am I gonna do now?" It takes Gumption to point out the obvious like Forrest did to Lt. Dan. It takes Gumption to hear something that you may, or many not, be ready hear. Do you want to be more gump-like? ... Tell people the obvious - tell people the truth - even if if they aren't ready to hear it. Let's learn to live our lives with Gumption.
