I watch a LOT of documentaries but this one was incredibly special right from the start. It plunged itself into my core…past my heart and into my soul where it shattered some long held pain I had stored there and caused me to want to place a welcome sign back on some doors I had closed. The humanity revealed in this film is both heartbreaking and holy.
If you haven’t seen the film, Independent Lens is featuring it and you can watch it on your local PBS station.
If you want to help continue the incredible work that Rocky has begun, please consider purchasing the DVD, Rocky’s book and/or donating directly to LIGHT, the 501c3 non-profit created in response to the film. The services that LIGHT provides are offered free of charge regardless of religious beliefs, gender, socio-economic status, etc. LIGHT is not funded, governed, or advised by another NGO, non-profit, or religious organization.
With deepest gratitude I thank Rocky, Steve and all the crew who worked tirelessly to provide such an authentic, absorbing, admirable and arduous glimpse into the lives of these precious children. May I never forget Surya’s smile as long as I live.
I wanna be as patient & tolerant as Walden in my next life.
Today in the United States, we’ll celebrate Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., the civil rights leader. Dr. King was an activist, an orator…
