When the TV version of Annie came on, I was drawn to it.
It was the struggle of this poor kid in this environment and how her life changed. It immediately resonated.
It wasn't about mechanics; it was about a feeling, wanting to give someone something, which in turn was really gratifying. That really resonated for me.
From a very young age, militarism and trying to solve the world's problems through militarism is something that has always resonated with me as being a bad idea.
