En el mes de febrero mucho de lo que pensamos se centra en corazones rojos, flores, amor y claro, no puede faltar el chocolate. Casí siempre cuando pensamos en el mes del amor y la amistad, se nos viene a la mente esa persona especial que nos hace sentir maripositas en el estómago y hace que el corazón nos palpite más a prisa.

It was an exhortation from a Sunday sermon. Pastor Janette suggested we look for grimy stuff that’s gotten hidden under the hood since our car was dazzlingly new. Playing with that soulful metaphor, how are the gears meshing in Obamacare, healthcare reform or, if you prefer, the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act? We’ve had this measuring rod in place since 2010, last fully checked in 2012 by the Supreme Court, now getting more legal and legislative servicing, buffing and buffeting.

The whole movie is based on what she does after a radiologist mistakenly diagnoses a fatal disease because of a faulty MRI machine and then tells her she has three months to live.
