John Coffey... (The Green Mile)

"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 every day. There's too much of it. It's like pieces of glass in my head, all the time..."



Violence and bullying... it has to end. That is my wish for 2020.

Put in John Coffey's mouth.

Great book and movie.

4. I read the book.

Stephen King is a great author and activist.

(I'm his number two fan, not to be confused with his number one fan Insomnia and Misery)

3. More of that quotation...

I'm tired, boss. Tired of being on the road, lonely as a sparrow in the rain. I'm tired of never having me a buddy to be with to tell me where we's going to, coming from, 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...every day. There's too much of it. It's like pieces of glass in my head...all the time. Can you understand? ...
