Beyond the Call

I caught this film during the Cinemanila Festival last weekend. It is a nice documentary about 3 ordinary Americans who try to make a difference, all on their own. No government or big organization to back them up. Just their own resources.

One of the places they've been to was Basilan. They gave medical aid and supplies.

Incidentally, one of the good samaritans is my dad's friend. Nagkakilala sila sa Vietnam, when my dad was with the special forces and the guy was an air medic.

It is a very inspiring movie. It makes you feel that as long as you have the will, you can find a way. You don't need to be in the U.N. You don't have to be working for the World Bank. You don't need to be Bill Gates or Oprah Winfrey. If you want to help your fellow men, you can do it by yourself.
