“I don’t know.” … “That’s a good answer.”

There is another rerun of the movie – Contact in cable TV. I love the movie, the story line, the special effect and the acting. But I love most is the last few lines in the movie – yes, I can wait two hours just for that 15 seconds …

KID : Are there other people out there in the Universe?
ELLIE : That’s a good question. What do you think, huh?
KID : I don’t know.
ELLIE : That’s a good answer. A skeptic, huh? The most important thing is that you all keep searching for your own answers.

When was the last time you heard a teacher said “That’s a good answers.” to a student who answered “I don’t know.” to a question ?

You see, the most important thing is – keep searching for your own answers.
