Last night my husband and I watched a dvd called "Lakawanna Blues." Let me just say it is beyond Academy Award worthy. It takes a lot for me to cry over a movie but tears were streaming down my cheeks during this one. To say the acting is powerful is an understatement. The soundtrack carries the story with music that is both lively and soul searching. One of my best friends was born in Lakawanna and raised in Buffalo, N.Y.. We often joke that we are twins separated at birth. Our dads were firefighters. We're both from N.Y..
