After recently writing a post about "Passion vs. Drive", the movie Freedom Writers shows us a great example of the difference. While many characters in this movie had passion, one person had the drive to push standards to a higher level. Even more special is the truth component. The movie is based on an actual class. Experts say Freedom Writers is very close to what really took place (not always common in movies "based on a true story").
Don’t worry. I’m not going to go into details on the movie. Go see it. For many people, this movie will be an eye opener on cultural issues in our society and in our schools. Plus — if you love what you do for a living, you will relate to the main character in Freedom Writers.
