I didn't know it was is Holocaust and Genocide awareness month until my dear, sweet husband asked me to the movies... he said we'd get a sitter for the boys and head for the movies at our "old time" theater downtown. It sounded like fun until I asked what movie we were going to see. This is when I found out Rob had been invited to be part of event to Honoring Holocaust survivors, liberators and others who had survived genocide.
We would also watch - "The Last Survivor." The film follows the lives of survivors of four different genocides and mass atrocities - The Holocaust, Rwanda, Darfur, and Congo - and presents a unique opportunity to learn from the lessons and mistakes of our past in order to have lasting impact on how we face similar issues today.

We went on our date, we enjoyed our time with one another and we also shared the pain and hope portrayed in the movie. Rob and I left the movie theater with the feeling that we saw the movie for a reason. It was clear that it was not an accident that Rob was invited to the event. Now we are wondering what should we do next. We are praying for clear direction.
The movie will be screened in several locations all over the country in the next 30 days. Please watch the movie trailer. I encourage you find a screening and attend! If you cannot, you may request a screening in your town. The co-producer stated it will be available for viewing on the Internet this summer.
