we had a chance to go see julie & julia with friends, but the timing wasn't right, so we opted to go with our first plan. i saw a trailer for the movie and was compelled to see it. i knew it wouldn't be easy to watch, but wanted to anyway.
the stoning of soraya m is a gut-wrenching story of betrayal, male dominance, and how one's desire for something can destroy lives and taints an entire village.
this is a true story. a story worth telling. because this sort of injustice isn't just a thing of the past, but continues on today.
now that i've seen it, i wonder what exactly i'm supposed to do with this knowledge. i suppose exactly why this book, this movie was created. . . to keep her story alive.
and by remaining silent, why that just condones the action.
