  1. Hi Diane. Have you heard about TRUST, the movie directed by David Schwimmer? It is an R rated movie being released April 1,2011 about a normal family whose daughter gets involved on the internet with friends. But something happens. Something no parent would want to experience.

    Have seen both Clive Owens (actor) and David (director) talk about it in interviews. I have yet to see the movie, but I think the movie is very timely with so much technology around us and the message it is sending. People have said more than once “it won’t happen to me” and I say “think again” or better yet, go see this movie especially if you are a parent or teacher or work with children.

    Hope all is well

  2. Hi Diane,

    I think you should give strong consideration to the show “Intervention” on A&E. Real people and their families and friends dealing with some of the most difficult addictions on the planet. I am ALWAYS moved every time I watch this show. It is often moving and inspiring.

    Thanks for having this site!

    Joe
