Due to his adoption by the Tuhoy family (a wealthy, white family I might add) friends of the Tuhoys start questioning the relationship based off of his race.

Michael Oher definitely counted his blessings because he had many of them. Those blessing were much bigger than his problems G. This movie can really teach you to be grateful for what you have. As you can see there are many people in this world who doesn’t have a family that loves them, a place to sleep, and a place to eat. My current goal right now is to get into college. The biggest way for me to get in is to ace my ACT so I can go to any college of my choosing. With lots of studying, no procrastination, and education I believe I can achieve that goal.
