Someone is waiting for another person to notice they are broken or alone. What happens when we don’t pay attention?
“My son said that he spoke about his life to classmates after the film which he’s never done!!! I was happy because I know how silence makes you feel isolated as if you’re the only one with issues. I think it also helped him to see that other classmates had it harder than him as I’m sure it seems most kids, especially in this school district, have a perfect life which we as adults know is not true.”
“This film emotionally shattered me on several levels, as an individual/my life experiences; as a friend/family member; as an educator; as a 37-year-old burnout educator. A reminder to “take a moment” – it’s important, more important than anything else we try/are asked to do and the emotional toll it places on those of us who do “take a moment” – we need a community too especially if we ourselves are part of the pain.”
“This film forced me to focus on the painful reality of the ongoing breakdown in communication, relationships, and systems in this country. I think this is an important movie that without glamour tells the simple truth that people need to listen as the basic step to grow, to learn, to care, and to love.”
“By watching this film we are made to understand the critical reasons that we should pay attention and reach out when we see that someone is in that dark place and needing help. I know that LISTEN WILL save lives!”
“I have trouble opening up and I never think of my thoughts mattering and this actually made me question that. Thank you!”
