The Green Mile…

Posted: November 13, 2006 in Quotes_n_Facts

Yesterday I saw this movie ‘The Green Mile’ and last few minutes of it touches you completely. John Coffey (Michael Clark Duncan) who has got the powers of faith healing is on a death sentence for the crime which he has not done. He is blessed with powers of faith healing and can help people to come out of pain they are suffering from. Towards the end, Paul Edgecomb (Tom Hanks) – a prison guard on Death row, asks him whether he can do anything for John, and John asks him to give up all the worries about him. Here is the conversation which they had in movie in this touching sequence –

Paul Edgecomb: On the day of my judgment, when I stand before God, and He asks me why did I kill one of his true miracles, what am I gonna say? That is was my job? My job?
John Coffey: You tell God the Father it was a kindness you done. I know you hurtin’ and worryin’, I can feel it on you, but you oughta quit on it now. Because I want it over and done. I do. I’m tired, boss. Tired of bein’ on the road, lonely as a sparrow in the rain. Tired of not ever having me a buddy to be with, or tell me where we’s coming from or going to, or why. Mostly I’m tired of people being ugly to each other. I’m tired of all the pain I feel and hear in the world everyday. There’s too much of it. It’s like pieces of glass in my head all the time. Can you understand?
Paul Edgecomb: Yes, John. I think I can

Movie is certainly worth a watch…
