Two days ago, I could watch this movie again on TV. I don't remember exactly how many times I already saw this film, maybe three or four, but it's a classic I really love. It contains a philosophical content which awakes in myself a special feeling and the need to think about it. Nowadays,there are many reasons people may fight for in life. The ambition may be a personal one or a public many (a group of people fighting for reaching the same ambition) as it happens in Breaveheart, where a whole group is fighting to reach their independence and freedom. What's our goal we want to reach in our life? Do we have enough motivation to react and to look for getting it? Or do we need a leader in our life who shows us the way? Wallace was the leader for the whole population and who unified all to a big army, not because he wanted to do so, but people recognized his strength and decided to follow and to support him. Would the people have fightet without that leader? After his heroe was dead, obviously they wanted to finish what they've started, but it seemed that together with their heroe also their motivation and strength pased away...until a new leader appeared and leaded the population to the independence and freedom. Do you need a leader? Or do you search your own goals?

I recently watched Braveheart too and even though I've seen it a dozen times I love the movie (and Mel Gibson). I'm more of a leader than a follower so I search my own goals.

Mel Gibson is really a great actor and director. Nice to see that you are a leader, it make many aspects of life easier. Thanks for your post.
