"To control a people, you must first control what they think about themselves and how they regard their history and culture. And when your conqueror makes you ashamed of your culture and your history, he needs no prison walls and no chains to hold you."

"Um ein Volk zu kontrollieren, musst du zuerst kontrollieren,was das Volk über sich selbst denkt und auf welche Art und Weise es seine Geschichte und Kultur begreift. Und wenn dein Eroberer dich dazu bringt, dich deiner Kultur und Geschichte zu schämen, braucht er keine Gefängnismauern und keine Ketten, um dich zu halten."

John Henrik Clarke

Cinema is a medium of aesthetics, perspectives, intercultural communication and understanding hence, leading to rapprochement between individuals, groups and nations.

Cinema ist ein Medium der Ästhetik, Perspektiven, interkulturellen Kommunikation und des Verständnisses und führt daher zur Wiederannäherung zwischen Individuen, Gruppen und Nationen.

As you may be aware, the US Postal Service recently released its new 
"Fund the Cure" stamp to help fund breast cancer research. 
The stamp was designed by Ethel Kessler of Bethesda, Maryland.  
It is important that we take a stand against this disease that affects 
so many of our mothers, sisters and friends.

Instead of the routine 37 cents for a stamp, this one costs 40 cents. The 
additional 3 cents will go to breast cancer research.  A "normal" book costs 
$7.40.  This one is only $8.00.  It takes a few minutes in line at the Post 
Office and means so much.  If all stamps are sold, it will raise an additional 
$35,000,000 for this vital research.

Just as important as the money is our support.  What a statement it would 
make if the stamp outsold the lottery this week. What a statement it would 
make that we care.  I would urge you to do two things TODAY:

1. Go out and purchase some of these stamps.

2. E-mail your friends to do the same.  We all know women and their families 
whose lives are turned upside-down by breast cancer.  
It takes so little to do so much in this drive.  
I think we can all afford the additional 60 cents the 
new book costs.

The Breast Cancer site is having trouble getting enough people to click on it 
daily to meet their quota of donating at least one free mammogram a day to 
an underprivileged woman. It takes less than a minute to go to their site and 
click on "donating a mammogram" for free (pink window in the middle). This 
doesn't cost you a thing. Their corporate sponsors/advertisers use the 
number of daily visits to donate a mammogram in exchange for advertising.

Please click on the stamp for the breast cancer site.
