The Shawshank Redemption

I saw “The Shawshank Redemption” movie for the 4th or 5th time but it was so different for me since it was really my first time to have watched it as a toastmaster acting as a speech evaluator.
The movie is a long story about the power of hope and true lifelong friendship.
The movie’s ending message in the ending scene was so marvelous and magical voiced by the great Morgan Freeman:
” I find I’m so excited that I can barely sit still or hold a thought in my head. I think it’s the excitement only a free man can feel. A free man at a start of a long journey whose conclusion is uncertain.

I hope I can make it across the border…

I hope to see my friend and shake his hand…

I hope the Pacific is as blue as it has been in my dreams…

I hope.”
