Variety Reviews - Lincoln - Film Reviews - New U.S. Release - Review by Peter Debruge

I think we all at one point or another did not like going to History class in high school. I remember taking my US History class in my senior year at J. Eugene McAteer High School, San Francisco. We were in a  bungalow at James Lick Middle School playground that year since our school was being cleaned up from asbestos. 
I remember being engaged in learning what took place in our states and as a country before I was born. I will admit, it was tough to grasp and fully understand our history. Moving forward to today, we have films that help us understand and engages us to listen. 
I think having "Lincoln" film released this November 9th, three days after the Presidential Election sends a powerful reminder to America, how far we have come as a nation.
I am excited to see a historical film about Lincoln. I like the fact, he enjoyed theater and arts. I also respect what he stood for and his goal to abolish slavery. His list of great things are long but it's great to know that we find Lincoln today still an important figure in America today. We must remember what he stood for - the people. 
I look forward seeing this film next Friday. I look forward to the story, costume design, set design, the music and to imagine living during the time Lincoln was president. 

See you at the movies.

Proud to be a Native San Franciscan

The past six months (or should I say years living in Dogpatch District) I've been blessed with amazing experiences I had not expected. As some of you know me well enough, I stay active in Dogpatch community since I moved here almost 14 years ago.  I believe the universe wanted me to live on this side of town in San Francisco before anything was really here.  I thought (and still do) volunteering every year for almost 13 years, is something great to do for the community and the neighborhood I live in. I've seen it grow and grow, almost like a child like where you want to protect it, defend it and let it grow to something so wonderful. Really, it's not me, it's the community that I fed off of over the years because of their passion, drive and determination in protecting this area - Dogpatch Historic District. Summer 2009, I was elected to be on board of Dogpatch Neighborhood Association as Member Coordinator/Corresponding Secretary. Re-elected last October 2015 f
