How I enjoyed watching your relationship with the Archbishop. It has also been one of the great joys of my life to connect with people who are very different to me. The fact that such connections are possible. And yours was precious.
I cried during the film, moved by the emotion and strength, and loved the insight into my country's past. I asked my 15year old son to watch it as well. I wanted him to see the joy that comes from real connection, compassion and kindness.
It was beautiful and real.
Thank you for sharing.
