|A very personal topic that is important to me

On a very personal note, i'm posting an announcement of a documentary airing in December, that has a very personal connection for me as it's about my cousin and his son. i'll warn you all now, that it is a heart-wrenching story, so don't watch it if you're already down. i just came home last night from it's first screening in the st louis area at the "st louis international film festival", seeing it with 24 family members, many of whom are in the film, though i am not. i couldn't handle being interviewed at the time and even now i tear up thinking about it. But it's a very important issue, to me and i think most civilized people, so please give it a try if you have access to MSNBC, or if it is showing at a theatre near you.|
North American Television Premiere:
Sunday, December 7, 2008 - 9 PM: MSNBC
The movie's website is below, and it lists locations where the film can be seen, and it will soon be out on DVD also.
I saw this story somewhere else recently. I am so sorry that this happened to your family. So tragic. I will watch the movie sometime soon. I wish your family some peace.
Thank You Arianna. It's definitely worth watching, though not if You want to be in a happy mood the next day. It does take a bit out of You emotionally. my uncle also wrote a book about the case, though from a more technical examination of the laws involved and the flaws in the system that allowed it to happen.
Wow. I'm sorry. I saw the movie and it totally crushed me. ;[
I can't imagine how it all made you feel.
Thank You Princess. i don't know if i could watch the film more than once, i dont know if i'm strong enough emotionally for that. i couldn't even handle speaking on camera to the filmmaker when he was first putting it together. i wish i'd been able to handle it, even if my scene wasn't used.
i'm thrilled to know that You've seen it however, and i've been hearing from others, friends and simple acquaintances from all over that they've seen it. It is good to know it's being seen more widely, getting the story out there.
