brownstone to red dirt – change the world as children do

Profile PictureBrownstone to Red Dirt: what a great documentary.  The children’s faces are like open books.  Sweet open books that want to be read.

It’s about a Brooklyn school and an orphanage in Sierra Leone getting involved in a pen pal program.

One of the kid’s referred to a great quote from a piece of graffiti:  Change your thoughts, change your world.  I think, the film also says, if we – adults, like me – can remember to think like these children do, a better world would seem more possible.

The film’s not just a heart-tugger.  These kids give some of the funniest quotes.
