Documentary Blog #15 – I forgot to mention…
This documentary is filled with emotion. On my second day in Marin County we went to take some food to a man we couldn't visit the previous day. His name is Paul Fellow and we interviewed him about his situation and his need for food. His story is so moving that it actually made me cry on camera. And, if you really know me you know that I don't cry very often. I think my wife has only seen me cry once in our 5+ years together. I just don't get that emotional to the point where I cry but this man's story and his complete and utter selflessness brought me to tears and made me evaluate my thoughts and perceptions about what it means to be elderly and in need.
I wish we all had the strength and fortitude of this man, Paul Fillow.
Like someone said in a comment in an earlier blog, one cannot embark on a journey such as this without having it affect them in a variety of ways. You know, all I can do is listen and document what I have seen and how it has affected me. I hope that when this documentary is complete and shown in a variety of festivals and other broadcast outlets it will have the same impact on the people viewing it as it has on me thus far. Who knows what other revelations I will discover about this hunger situation and myself while on this journey. However, all I can worry about is what I can do to make this world a better place. With that, I leave you with these wonderful words from the great Winston Churchill, "We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give."
The great Winston Churchill
See you tomorrow.
