INTRODUCTION... O Brother Where Art Thou?

I was flipping through the TV the other night and one of the stations had on a movie that I have enjoyed watching before that stars George Clooney and was released in 2000. "O Brother Where Art Thou?" is a story about three prisoners (George Clooney, John Turturro, and Tim Blake Nelson) who escape and find themselves on an odyssey searching for a hidden fortune, they stumble across fame, and learn to value family. Towards the end of the movie, the three are caught by the police and their bloodhounds and they are fitted for nooses right where they are caught. The main character, George Clooney, starts to pray to God and ask for a miracle. He says over and over that he wants to see his children again and that he will mend his ways. The three men just stand there in anticipation of being hung, and yet a miracle happens! A huge wave of water rushes over the men and the police and the men are saved from their fate. Two of the men count it a miracle while George Clooney’s character tries to reason the tsunami away, but he cannot. They were saved by a miracle!
