12 Years A Slave

I went to watch 12 Years A Slave tonight.. Well, it is hard to put into words! (Thank you Steve McQueen & all other contributors for making this heart wrenching, essential film!)

Sobering; horrifying; sickening; inspiring and beautiful all at the same time... but the most sobering part of the film..? Sitting in a cinema where people actually laughed at it as if it was there for their entertainment...

This is not fiction! This is not a thing of the past! There are more slaves today than in the days of Solomon Northup! We have a duty to stand for world change; to demand it; and together we can!

What are you doing with your freedom??

Stand together with organisations like The A21 Campaign who are trailblazing and actively fighting this fight for freedom!

Nobody can do everything, but EVERYBODY can do SOMETHING!
