Guilt, Responsibility, "The Reader" and Gaza

I'm just back from seeing one of most haunting and powerful movies I've ever seen. The Reader shows Kate Winslet at her best. This movie deals most effectively with evil, guilt and responsibility, allowing the viewer to think and evaluate much particularly related to the two main characters. My perspectives on some things might differ greatly from others and it doesn’t matter.

The movie reminds me again of our responsibilities to speak out against oppression.

I think of Gaza (again). I think of how we need to stop the oppression of this poor area and prevent more needless deaths, injuries and damaged lives. Others may think of other things which concern and trouble them.
