"scared sacred"

From the YouTube website: ""If ordinary human beings can see their own suffering then perhaps they become aware of the suffering of others." Scared Sacred website.

Why is it that so many people who call themselves or their beliefs "sacred" scare so many people in the name of "sacredness"?

The film opens in Bhopal, India, the site of the Union Carbide disaster, and the filmmaker travels to places such as Bosnia, Afganistan, Cambodia, and New York City post-9/11, to explore the Ground Zeros where the sacred is still inside the scared, inside the hearts of the people. Even in the worst places, there is still hope.

It is a very powerful trailer, and I can only imagine the power of the entire movie. I am buying the DVD. If you see this movie, please leave your comments.

"breathe in suffering. breathe out compassion."
