#courageous girls

Painful experiences, an Police authority figure: good old boy, who prides himself in being the one in charge above all but yet cannot show any empathy but for the boys - inept and plain unsuited for the complexity of this world and his role. Many lessons - most potent the mother Melinda and brother compassion and resilience. Let’s teach our boys to avoid creating dis functional adults and let’s be fearful of authority figures who are defending and protecting the status quo and their status. We can do better.

Courageous documentary

Incredibly courageous teenagers tell their story. I was trying to figure out a way to explain to my 2 teenage girls that going to parties and socializing among their peers isn't always as safe or predictable as it may seem. I watched this documentary and chose to force the girls to watch it. I only had to force them for 10 min. After that, they were glued to the screen. It sparked conversations for weeks. First about the sad occurences, then about the disappointing responses of others, followed by a realization that at any moment that could be us and finally about how courageous these girls are to share their stories. Truly inspiring, honest, believable and humbling.
