I am so grateful to the dedicated and caring people who made this film. I believe it shows what has happened to our country over the last 30 years and how it has created such a sense of despair for so many of our citizens. It shows a very real view of the poverty, homelessness and drug abuse that a loss of hope has brought to our people and how it has impacted our lives in both the small communities and the big cities. I like that it just isn't about despair but about how people in communities who are reaching out to others to try to find solutions. There are innovative programs in places like in Baltimore where the police department is reaching out to those who are addicted and guiding them into programs rather than to just a jailing them. So many people in small communities are reaching out to feed and house people in any way their limited means allow them todo. It is very touching and very encouraging that we can help each other in some small way and try let go of judgements towards those who have lost hope. This was made before the pandemic and I know the poverty, homelessness and substance abuse is worse now. However, it also requires a government that cares. President Biden is dedicated to helping the American people get back on their feet again, if only Congress would support his visionary programs that would restore a new American dream for everyone. The best thing any of us can do, no matter what our situation in life, is to vote for those who demonstrate they care about us citizens. Not just in words and speeches but in action. That is where our power and our hope for the. future resides. I believe it is so important for everyone to watch this film because those of us who are not wealthy and privileged can most definitely relate. I am a 75 year old women who never dreamed I would ever see our country in such dire straights. It doesn't have to be this way, but years of political apathy has created an America that is in despair. It isn't about politics or religion, it is about human compassion.
