As you digest a bit of turkey this week and prod our sluggish economy along a bit on black Friday, won't you consider taking in an amazing movie?... The Boy in the Striped Pajamas. This movie is a must see. I dare you not to draw parallels between what happened to the Jews in the 1940s and what has happened over the last 35 years to millions of babies in utero. The central theme of all of this comes down to one word: VALUE. In the movie and in real life, we humans have somehow come up with a wacky way of determining who has value. Those greedy Jews...hmmm maybe not. Clingy babies that wreck our lives....nada. How about the elderly with all of their health care demands. Oh, don't forget the disabled, the paraplegics, the mentally challenged, those with low IQs, those with freckles and red hair and those with headaches.
The movie will make you cry. And then it just might make you act.
