What lessons does the legend of King Arthur teach us? Are there any modern day lessons that we can still learn from?

    Here is my post from Jan. 11.
    "My opinion on why it appeals... These were some of the first tales of 'chivalry'...Heroes fighting to right wrongs. The society of that day had as many "evil doers" as we do today...and we are looking for heroes still today to "right those wrongs". We have always loved the stories of simple people who will go out and dare the impossible. We would like to be as "chivalrous" as they were. In addition these were supposedly real people, at least there is some basis in history.... and they brought the first footstep in polite society to barbarian England. We feel that they set the pattern for whom we were to become.

    Think of modern heroes. What about Martin Luther King? JFK? What about the first female astronaut? Who are some other people who have taken on the "status quo" and made a difference? What problems today need heroes?

    The message I got from the movie is; Our DESTINY will find us (in its own designed way from the higher power) and try to help us in the initial stages. If you accept your destiny, well and go for you. You will come across more help along the way. If you don't accept it, there are some repercussions because of the choice you decided to pick.
    The "sword" which is the most powerful object, represents "YOUR MIND". To keep this short, since a word to the wise is enough, "Know how to control your brain, and the world/goal/dream is yours."
