Knowledge is Power: World Cancer Day

It’s rare when a movie touches a person so deeply that it draws them to tears. Not the kind of tears that are a sympathetic reaction, but tears of the deeply emotional kind. Tears of fear and regret for things that you’ve done or not yet done but regret not doing so. Sometimes a movie just grabs you and makes you think all sorts of what ifs. What if I had just done this?

“The Goonies ‘R’ Good Enough”

It’s good
it’s good enough
it’s good enough for me.
Good enough for you is good enough for me
it’s good enough. – “The Goonies ‘R’ Good Enough” by Cyndi Lauper

This week, TCC is taking you back, way back, to the awesome geek cult classics of the 1980s.
