dear zachary

Please see this film. I had no idea what I was getting myself into when I picked up this documentary with an interesting cover at the library. It's an amazing little film -- about a man who was murdered and all the people who loved him. I'm still crying.

My brother (Zachary) was telling me about this film just a couple of days ago. He was as moved as you. I'm pretty sure that I wouldn't be strong enough to sit through it.

It's such a horrible story about really bad things happening to really good people. The irony is that Zachary's grandparents had reason to want to murder and yet they directed their energy in a positive way where Zachary's mother used it in a destructive manner. This is something that they couldn't prove to the courts until it was too late.

Urgh. I woke up thinking about it this morning. I don't know why I didn't hear about this story in the media in America... it's been produced by MSNBC but I don't recall ever seeing this story reported anywhere. Maybe they thought it was too horrible to put in front of people -- but really, when you see the movie, even though it's about this awful "thing," the real message is about love.

It's so good and Mary, you are a mother, you are a STRONG WOMAN.
