Ann and Phelim organized a cinematic tea party to debut Not Evil Just Wrong in order to set a world record for a simultaneous movie premiere, but the movie is about people, not numbers. That's why we love hearing the great people stories from our premiere partners.
One of the most inspiring we've heard so far occurred during a question-and-answer session after a screening in New Mexico. An elderly woman stopped at the door to speak as she was leaving. The Rio Grande Foundation recounted the tale on its blog, New Mexico Liberty:
With a strong accent, she told the crowd that she grew up in Nazi Germany under Hitler, and she had seen and experienced firsthand what power and corruption can produce. You could have heard a pin drop.
It was incredibly moving and a very powerful moment to say the least. I can't begin to describe the look on her face, other than maybe haunting. It was also a fitting punctuation mark on the message of the movie.
The Valley Forge Patriots in Phoenixville, Pa., shared another poignant moment via e-mail. Sixty-three people attended their premiere on a night when two of the area's favorite professional sports teams, the Philadelphia Eagles and Philadelphia Phillies, were playing games. Carol Sexton was there. She sang "The Star-Spangled Banner" after the movie.
America's national anthem is inspiring enough on its own, but it's even more inspiring when put in context. "The woman who sang at the end of the video has been blind since the age of 2, and she is out there fighting," Diane Canney wrote to the Not Evil team. "God Bless America."
This country needs more people like Sexton and the woman who was raised in Nazi Germany fighting to defend the American Dream against environmental alarmism. You are the resistance!
Please tell me about the inspiring moments at your premieres so I can post them to the blog. You can reach me by e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org.
