I AM BECAUSE WE ARE
This documentary, I AM BECAUSE WE ARE, was co created by Madonna and quite possibly one of the best films currently dealing with the crisis in Africa. If you have ever wanted to learn more about what is happening, or why AIDS,poverty, and orphans are such a huge issue in Africa...I challenge you to take the time to watch this.
Even if you have no connection to Africa and maybe do not understand my connection to this place, here is a brutually honest and heart felt film of desperation and hope. It is also a good reality check on daily life here in America and how we so so quickly take it for granted.
The film is about an hour and a half long, and offered on youtube. It is very tough to watch, but it is real life for people in Malawi and all across Africa. There is hope...And it starts with each one of us making the smallest difference.
