The Gift (2014)

Available worldwide

In Mississippi in 1946, a mother takes her son to the local hardware store where he can select a gift for his eleventh birthday. When the boy’s attention is taken by a .22 rifle, his mother is not pleased. But the man behind the counter comes up with an alternate suggestion. The rest, as they say, is history.

Thank you for this great message.
After all, what can one do with a gun?
What can one do with a musical instrument?
Both make noise, both move the soul, both…
But one creates scary noise, sorrow, separation, pain
While the other creates inner peace, joy, bringing us together to celebrate life.

I love it, it showed a perfect expression of diplomacy. By not creating resistance , instead gently directing one can make great strives to a more positive outcomes. Empowering others to make better decisions
