A few weeks ago, “Rocky Balboa” was on T.V. I always knew it as “Rocky 6″, and I had never really watched a Rocky movie in its entirety before. My son, who is 13, was mesmerised. At first, I was unsure if it was appropriate for my kids to watch, but then as I became more engrossed in the movie, I too was mesmerised! It is a simple, hard hitting (literally!) movie about life, strength, determination and “guts”. Needless to say, we have now watched “Rocky 1″ through to “Rocky 6″, a number of times! I have to say though, I have really enjoyed it.
There is a quote that Rocky says in “Rocky Balboa” to his son. I am going to share it with you now. No other words need to be added, it pretty much sums it all up and delivers it with a punch! I hope it resonates with you as much as it did with me.
