and the oscar goes to

i saw a movie last night that knocked the wind out of me. a movie with performances the caliber of which i haven't seen in a long time. the writing is raw. the characters are real. the movie is about a world that is as foreign to me as living in russia would be.

i can't begin to understand the lack of value placed on a human life. the complete disregard for human feelings and the disrespect for the human spirit. it's the story of one girl who survives mental, emotional, physical and sexual abuse. she finds the one person who believes in her and the one person who will fight for her. how incredible to be that one person for someone.

the story is heart wrenching, gut wrenching and if you see the movie and walk out feeling nothing but drained and fortunate....that might be enough to realize how lucky we are. if you walk out and take it to another level and look to help those who are not able to help themselves, what a greater gift.
