"Re: Harvey Troyer post on Secretariat"


 
For the past several months my wife and I have been repeatedly watching scene of the Benmont Stakes race in the movie Secretariat, just as Harvey describes.
 
Whenever we need our mood  lifted or the atmosphere in the house brightened, we put on this uplifting scene. When Diane Lane reads the scripture passage from Job, and then the song "O Happy Day" plays, I am just lifted up.
 
I especially am moved and called by the admonition in the song to "watch, fight, and pray".
 
It's not far to the finish line and we just need to hang on, and "watch, fight and pray."
