Hi Adrienne!

what you write in your note is terrible. Strange that many people in TE opened your picture and nobody wrote anything till now, at least fo clicking on "useful" under your note.
I see that you visited very poor areas in Africa, I think that such a trip may change one's life, it must be very hard to see such people.

Just yesterday I saw Kiarostami movie "ABC" about AIDS orphans in Uganda, did you see it? Very well done.

And this blue dress "shadow" little girl is really moving. Brava!!

Default To lestans: thank you

Thank you for your note. Yes, I think child slavery is an issue people are too scared to look at because then one has to try to think of a way to help or turn one's head (like in the US pre-Civil War.) We can send troops to liberate nations and try to help them have democracy, yet we do not try to liberate diamond mines of child slaves. It is complex. I did not see the special on AIDS in Uganda, sounds interesting. There is a great film out now called "Blood Diamond" about West Africa, some of which deals with child slavery. I applied for grad school for next year and wrote into my proposal to keep going back to West Africa to film on children's and women's issues. We'll see if I get accepted anywhere or get any money :-)
