Happy Easter

April 14, 2006 | Holidays

The Christian world is preparing for one of its most religious celebrations – Easter Sunday – the day Jesus arose from the dead.

Two years ago friends and I nestled into the theater to watch Mel Gibson’s “The Passion”. The impact of this production left me speechless. I recommend you rent this acclaimed film. The actors, their performances, and the cinematography surpass every other movie.

Yes, the subject matter is sensitive, especially at this time with all the unrest in the world, but make an effort to look beyond the religious aspect. Consider Jesus as an every day man caught up in the hysteria of his people, a scapegoat if you will. The atrocities he suffered, by what we determine an advanced society, are heart wrenching.

It is phenomenal to me the brutalities we inflict on our fellow humans in the name of righteousness. Over the centuries we obviously have learned nothing to better our relationships with one another.

To all of you, of every faith, I wish you peace and a new found respect for each other.
