SPIRITUAL POINT OF VIEW
(continued from the visual review)

“The Boy in the Striped Pajamas is a fable intended to provide a unique perspective on the effects of prejudice, hatred and violence on innocent people, particularly children, during wartime.” --The producers

Critic Roger Ebert chillingly says this film “is about a value system that survives like a virus.” And this very evil ever-present human virus continues to inject us in Rwanda, Somalia, Palestine, Israel, Darfur, Zimbabwe and Iraq. This virus is PREJUDICE. And WE ARE ALL INFECTED. It was not limited to the Nazis.

Vermont Governor George Aiken noted that “If we were to wake up some morning and find that everyone was the same race, creed and color, we would find some other cause for prejudice by noon.” The only antidote is to “love your neighbor” --regardless who that might be. Death of prejudice begins in our heart. We Must Never Forget!
