Forrest Meets Army Recruiter
Forrest has graduated from college, his mother expresses her pride. Just then, an army recruiter shows up and Forrest meets his next opportunity - or life chapter.
**-- HERE IS THE VIDEO TRANSCRIPT --** One life chapter ends, and a new life chapter begins. Do we plan our lives or do circumstances dictate the way our lives develop? The answer is both. I'm Steve Weber and today's scene #56 is all about Forrest ending one life chapter and then his next life chapter magically appearing before him. There are a few special moments in our lives when one life chapter will end at the exact moment that a new life chapter begins. Graduation Day is the formal end of a life chapter. After receiving his diploma, basking in the admiration and love of his mother, he meets an army recruiter. It seems Forrest hadn't bothered to figure out what was next for him in life. It was serendipitous that the army recruiter approached Forrest at that moment. Often times in our lives, we don't have an exact plan, we just go with the flow and take the next opportunity that shows up. That is exactly what Forrest did. One chapter came to a formal ending, and a new chapter was about to begin. It takes Gumption to complete a life chapter like graduating from college. Do you want to be more gump-like? ... Finish one life chapter with the ceremony and pomp that it deserves ... and then be ready and open to the next life chapter that is beginning. Let's learn to live our lives with Gumption.
