Hope and a Little Sugar
image from compassionconnection.org
I just watched a touching movie called Hope and a Little Sugar, about a forbidden love between a Muslim man and a Sikh woman in the days surrounding 9/11 in New York. It was apparently based on true life events and, as such, was real and touching and very human.
I was most struck by a line a wise older man spoke during the film:
"This is the world we've got, my friend.
We make it what it is, one choice at a time."
