Sitting here in silence…

I just finished watching Blood Diamond. 


That was a little too close to reality for me.

I guess I would still recommend it to anyone who really wants to know what a war zone in Africa is like.  I am still overwhelmed by it.  It is not a good movie to go to sleep on.

    The ways of the world are sometimes ugly and we are reminded that in the midst of the ugliness, God is still in control.

    That movie is unsettling in the truths it portrays. The brutality. The greed. The desire for power. Not unlike here of course but here, it is a little more subtle…… far……

    God help us.

  2. Do you know if Blood Diamond is a true story, or based on a true general situation? We watched it a few weeks ago… was quite impactful for me.

    I’m not sure. It could be a generalization but there is a lot of concern worldwide for the traffic in conflict diamonds. I don’t have the movie any more or perhaps I could look this up.

    Does anyone know?
