A slightly off-topic post, off my Facebook. I’m thinking of a mother who lost a son on the hijacked plane that struck WTC Tower2 on 9/11. Then deciding with her husband to build a girls school in Logar Afghanistan – land where terrorists were trained – as a way to make PEACE; thus creating a tribute in her son’s memory, transforming grief into inspiration and joy, and bridging cultures in faraway lands. That is the story of Sally Goodrich as told in the film-in-progress, “Axis of Good”.
Director friend Rick Derby and I have gotten the documentary of Sally Goodrich’s journey into the Berkshire International Film Festival www.biffma.com. Go see it in Gt. Barrington MA at the Triplex2, tomorrow, Sunday 5/17 at 4pm. Inspiring. Heartwarming. Incredible. Rick, Sally and Don Goodrich will be there to share, after the film concludes.
