And speaking of Hunger Games...

I have considered writing this post since I saw The Hunger Games a bit ago, but the point of the post, while short, is gut-wrenching for me.

I read all of the books in Suzanne Collins' Hunger Games trilogy, and I wanted to see the movie.  I wanted to visualize the strange world of Panem, and its occupants.

I knew the story of Rue, the young girl from district 11 who is killed while Katniss watches over her, but in the movie, the visual of Rue hit me in the gut like a freight train.  For those who know me, and know what Rue looks like in the movie, you will understand.  Heart-breaking symbolism...
