Horton Hears A Who

Oh, this movie was incredible.

I was first introduced to the story of Horton Hears a Who last year in an apologetics class. Since then I haven’t been able to get enough of it. When I found out they were making a movie from the book I was completely thrilled! It didn’t even matter if they messed it up, even though I knew they wouldn’t, so long as they were making a movie of it!

The story follows a happy go lucky elephant named Horton. Horton lives a fairly normal life until the day when he hears a noise. What is that noise you may ask? A tiny yelp, and Horton thinks it’s coming from a speck. He puts that speck onto a clover and attempts to communicate with it. You see, Horton is an elephant and elephants have very sensitive ears so only Horton can hear the voices coming from the speck! The voices ask Horton to help them found a stable quiet place where they can exist harmoniously. Horton is very willing to do so; but there is a problem. The head kangaroo that runs the Jungle Horton lives in doesn’t believe in the speck. She doesn’t like to believe in anything she can’t see, hear, or smell. She insists that Horton is crazy and that everyone needs to help get rid of speck for good! Well Horton absolutely cannot put up with that! Thus begins his truly epic journey to save the Who’s.

I don’t want to spoil it for those that haven’t read the book yet, but can I just say how much I LOVE this story! The movie adaption is also brilliant. Among my favorite lines are “I said what I meant and I meant what I said, an elephants faithful 100%” and “A person’s a person no matter how small.” Now being a huge pro-life person my self, I see this story as totally pro-life. The whole plot is about the Who’s really existing; but they’re voices being too small to be heard. In the end, it’s the one small voice that makes a difference and saves the day. How perfect is that? Horton Hears a Who shows what happens when people unite, and the miracles that can happen when we believe and choose to hear what science would have believe doesn’t exist and isn’t possible.

Please, please, please! If you haven’t read this story yet than you absolutely must!
