17. He was, indeed!

I loved that movie, which was the only one I was able to see and hubby and I had to make a six-hour round trip to be able to see it (we live on a remote Indian reservation so there are obviously no theaters around here, the nearest ones are hours away).

I'm one of those "different" people who suffered horribly from depression as a teenager due to bullying because of it and I've never quite "fit in" with any crowd; I'm constantly hearing about how "weird" I am even now, at fifty years old. So I loved what he said and he's absolutely right. And it's those "different" people who often move society forward culturally, socially, artistically, scientifically, etc. Like Alan Turing himself. Unfortunately, it's often recognized too late for the person who's made the accomplishments.
