Have you seen it?
The movie “spotlight” is a powerful voice in the long overdue work of giving voice to victims of sexual abuse. It addresses the issue with respect, with courage, and with relentless curiosity. What came out at the end of the day was far bigger than anyone ever expected.
This is not a movie about the evils of the Catholic church. It could be any church. It could be any school. It could be any city.
It is a movie about silence. And it is a movie about the systems that uphold that silence.
Because the reality is: it is my church, my school, my city. It is, in fact, my story.
Where does the path lead? And who will have the courage to connect the dots?
Will you? Will I?
