|I want those rings too!|
The Green Lantern also brought back a discussion the past, in a very prestigious IB school, about how sometimes in life we are chosen, or the chosen one. It was something that you could relate to. How Hal Jordan faced his fears and discovered his inner strength and become triumphant in the end. It was a needed boost at the time.
But the thing is... Hal Jordan didn't apply for a Green Lantern ring. He did not. He was chosen out of the sky from a crashing alien ship who the judge was a green light that saw something in him. The green light choose him. Now that makes a lot of difference see.
Previously he did not knew what he wanted to do. He was a slacker, skilled and talented yet lacked discipline. Once chosen by the green light who saw his potential, he still doubted himself, but on the journey he discovered something worth fighting for. He willed up the will to make the right decision.
He finally had something worth living for.
You might not have the green lantern's ring, but what you have is will. And have you found what is worth fighting for?
