You might wonder what’s so great about him. You’ll know why. He’s the reason some of them are still living with us today. He’s the reason some people were able to realize that they had made an error in judgement and they were given a chance to rectify their blunder before it was too late. So he’s very aptly been called the “Guardian Angel”. It might look very simple at the outset, but think of how influencing and powerful his words of comfort might be. He convinces people, who, have explored all the options and after a meticulous introspection and analyses, had decided to take such a huge step which would not only be detrimental for themselves but also to their next of kith and kin. If they’ve finally resorted and turned to it as the only option available for them, they would definitely be gripped by a sense of fear and panic and would be terrified of the consequences, but with that mindset, it would be very difficult to talk them out of it. And our Godfather does it impeccably.
Don Corleone (Mario Puzo), we are aware, never fails people who come to him asking for help of any kind. But our Don Ritche , lends out a helping hand to others even without being requested for. It’s so pleasing to find that there are still people like him who are present in this world, and we should be happy that were are living in the same world as him. So Selfless, such nobility and generosity of spirit. Long live Don Ritche, The Guardian Angel and The Godfather!
