Are You Ready to Call on the Ghostbusters?

There were tons of hit movies released in 1984—the same year as Ghostbusters. But, Ghostbusters deserves a special place in everyone’s hearts! It’s funny to think that kids who grew up during this time are more likely to call their hotline instead of 911; they’re just that iconic.

To start with, Ghostbusters is not just about the supernatural. More than all the ghosts, they show us what true camaraderie is and why believing in yourself is so important. In one of the scenes, Winston tells Ray, “Ray, when someone asks you if you’re a God, you say yes!”

It’s a bit of an exaggeration, but this line shows that Ghostbusters wants us to put faith in ourselves. We might think that something’s unthinkable for us to reach—like them capturing ghosts—but as long as we believe in our capabilities, nothing’s truly impossible.

Sometimes, all it takes is a little effort, persistent determination, and never-ending faith in ourselves. Be like Peter Venkman, Ray Stantz, and Egon Spengler in Ghostbusters, and do what you think is right and what will make you happy!
