We just watched the movie “Flatliners” this evening. I haven’t seen that movie in years and years – – but it’s a good flick. Four medical students start fooling around with death and find a way to be able to kill themselves while the others stand by and bring them back to life at the last second.
Problem is…their near death experience brings them nightmares of past regrets, mistakes and transgressions that have now come to life to haunt them. The only way they are able to make the nightmares go away is atonement.
Makes me wonder – – – if that were true and I applied it to my life…which one of my past sins/regrets would haunt me?
I was never mean to kids at my school when I was a kid – – I was generally the one the other kids were mean to. That is until I got into high school…when I grew into my tall frame, popped out a nice pair of ta-ta’s and grew my blonde hair long. Amazing what it takes for people to accept you, isn’t it? Too late, though – by then I was already cynical and jaded and refusing to be part of the ‘in’ crowd – – I just kind of did my own thing and didn’t ever really belong to any particular group or clique….I sort of just hung out on the edge of each of the different groups..not identifying with anyone.
Hmm…I have to think on this past transgression thing. Which would be the one to haunt me if I were a cast member in Flatliners?
