“Every person’s life is worth a movie”

Good morning, friends. Last weekend I attended a film festival premiere for a movie I believe everyone should see; not because I think it’s going to win an Oscar or because it has famous people in it. If the Oscar is awarded it will be because these story tellers managed to convey real people, who changed history, in ways that make viewers want to do the same. And as for the famous people in it... folks like Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. are portrayed, not as super heroes, but as men and women with their own fears and foibles. 
The name of the movie is “Freedom Riders” and I feel blessed that, along with the excellent director, Stanley Nelson, I was also introduced to the author, the producer, and one of the original Freedom Riders. You might wonder, "What has this to do with Amazon Sage?" As you may rcall, it is Amazon Sage who sees the suffering in the world and reaches out to people through her dream-travels. This past Saturday night was no exception. As she traveled to current places of greatest need; she listened to the hearts and minds of other brave folks who struggle for the rights of all people. 
For most, their journey to freedom is not so eloquently presented and their wounds are not always so visible. Like young Yasmine, in Egypt; or Autumn Two Bulls on the Pine Ridge Indian reservation. They too suffer in their efforts to rid the world of the poisons of discrimination and hatred. How ironic that people of other nations are becoming more out spoken than ever --with some even looking at what is happening in Egypt as reminiscent of MLK’s nonviolence -- even as men in our own blessed country spew their venom over the airwaves. Look around, listen, read, then act from your most loving heart. Every person’s life is worth a story. 
What will yours be?
