From peasant to knight; one man can change his stars.
William: “Hope guides me,
that is what gets me through the day and the night.
The hope that after you’re gone from my sight,
it will not be the last time that I look upon you.”
By now, the world knows that Heath Ledger has died. I tried to explain to my boys tonight that our favorite William had died, and that he was really young. I had cause to remember how many times we had to watch Knight’s Tale. Was it really 2001 when we started watching it, because one boy would have been 5, the other 3 years old. We loved the part where he yells out *WILLIAM*!!!!!, and jousts triumphantly. We said that line around our house a lot. My boys jousted with anything they could get their hands on.
Such a shame, and so sad. Rest in peace. Know how much pleasure your movie gave my little boys.
