The experiment depicted (about a Muslim woman) is so shocking that any loving person will most likely be completely devastated to a shriveling little ball of tears - bring the tissue box - it can hit HARD - as it hit me. Some may not feel such a personal connection to the events depicted. There is nothing gory or anything of that nature - the depiction is purely a psychological and sociological experiment.
The reason I am asking everyone to view this very difficult film is because I recogize that this is the type of work that I agreed to do when I incarnated, so as to help anchor LOVE in every corner of earth, and in every human heart - or to die trying. We have much work to do. This type of attitude is so pervasive in our society, and it is up to all of us to speak up and to stand up for dignity, in every situation.
I would venture to say that we have all experienced discrimination of this nature at one time or another, some more so than others, be it because of our gender, our race, our sexual orientation, our age, our disabilities, and on and on and on the list goes. Some characteristics have legally protected statuses, and some do not. I can tell you that this is one of many reasons that I will never leave California - because my sexual orientation is a protected status under State discrimination laws. And it is NEEDED FOR A REASON - I have been treated or have seen others being treated as badly as the actors and the unsuspecting public members in this experiment treat each other, and it is not something we can allow to continue. If we don't stand up and say the right thing when called to do so, we are not living up to our highest potential.
My new signature "e-mail signature" is so much more relevant to me now than ever before.
