Freedom Writers

Do the right thing simply because it's the right thing to do.
.................................................................................................

We are all ordinary people, but even an ordinary secretary,
teacher, housewife, teenager can, within their own small ways,
turn on a small light in a dark room.


These are the insights that I got from the true story movie entitled Freedom Writers, directed by Richard LaGravenese. I just finished watching the movie and it's more than what the director has delivered to the everyone (me). An outstanding movie that emphasized 'racial discrimination' as the root of all the wars against each and everyone, which is undoubtedly inevitable. Room 203, the only place for these different races to unite and even talk to each other neglecting discrimination and culture.


Their story. Their world. Their future.

Synopsis:

Hilary Swank stars in this gripping story of inner city kids raised on drive-by shootings and hard-core attitude - and the teacher who gives them the one thing they need most: a voice of there own. Dropped into the free-fire zone of a school torn by violence and racial tension, teacher Erin Gruwell battles an uncaring system in a fight to make the classroom matter in her student's lives. Now, telling their own stories, and hearing the stories of others, a group of supposedly "unteachable" teens will discover the power of tolerance, reclaim their shattered lives, and change their world.
