Theme

God has a plan for everyone, which means he has one for Simon. Simon asks throughout the whole movie if God has a plan for everyone, like this example.

Simon States,

"I want to know that there's a reason for things. I used to be certain, but now I'm not so sure. I want you to tell me that God has a plan for me, a plan for all of us. Please."

Simon Birch

Simon Birch is a round dynamic character. He was born with an undersized heart, so the doctors were expecting him not to live that long. He is the smallest one ever to be born in their town. He's very kind and hopes to be a hero one day. His friend is practically his brother, he keeps him safe and loves him. His faith has grown so much from the beginning to the end. He went from being rude and little bit selfish to being a hero and saving many lives. This quote is the same for the theme because it's a perfect example to show his faith.

Events

There were many big scenes in the movie. I can't talk about them all but I will summarize what happened from Simon's eyes for three of them.


1. I was up to bat. My couch had never wanted me to swing because I always get the walk because the pitcher can't pitch to my hitbox. I swung and hit the ball. It was as if it was slow motion, the ball was a foul ball. Not only that but it was heading straight for Joe's mom. it hit her in the head, she laid there dead.


2. We had to figure out who took the baseball. We snuck into the school to check the gym teacher's office because he had always been different around her. They went in and found the ball in a cabinet. Joe got so mad he threw the ball through a window. They were caught by the janitor.


3. We were heading home when a deer ran out in front of the bus. The driver didn't know what to do so he swerved into the ditch, but it was a hill leading down into a cold river. The children were panicking so i had to do something. I stood up to lead them all out and save them.
