As I'm lying here in bed, ill and feeling sorry for myself (true manflu style) I'm watching films. As many of us do when we are ill. But the story I watched was not one of fiction or of typical american film standards. Although it has a happy ending, it is one which is real and is continuing and gives me hope.

Three words you should all look up, buy the book, watch the film, read the stories. Because it's real, and that's amazing. It shows the great difference that even one person can make in society, and the insights which young kids can have into a very complicated world that even adults struggle to understand.
So before you judge someone on their race, background, religion, sexuality or anything else, have a look at this. Because these people aren't so different from you at all, and it is only when you see that, that you will become a better person.
