Everyone who knows me, knows how much I love Jurassic Park. I mean…you don’t even have to know me very well to know how much it means to me. I have so much appreciation for this film and it truly holds a special place in my heart.
I will never forget the first time I saw Jurassic Park. I will also never forget how I almost didn’t even go see it at all (LOL). My dad wanted to take me to see it, but I was secretly scared. I was hearing about the film from some friends at the time and I was acting interested, but I was secretly terrified. The way they described it…it didn’t sound like it was appropriate for our age to watch. I finally trusted my dad, he never steered me wrong, and I am so happy I did because I can’t imagine my life without Jurassic Park being a part of it.
From the moment I saw the brachiosaurus on screen, with the music playing, and the faces of the characters, I was a part of it. I always describe Jurassic Park as magical because that’s the best description I can give to explain what I felt, and actually still feel today. Jurassic Park was a huge part of my childhood, and a huge part of who I am today.
If you heard my full story before, you also know that my father passed away when I was younger. This movie has become a huge part of our memories together for me. After all, if it wasn’t for my dad, I would have never seen Jurassic Park and who knows where I would be right now. Jurassic Park was the beginning of my journey down the road to following my dreams and it will always hold a special place in my heart.
