The Whistleblower and the shame to be human

It has been roughly 45 minutes since I gazed upon the end credits of "The Whistleblower".....I could not read them (the end credits), but on the screen through the blur of my tears, allthough I could barely breathe from the violent emotional flooding, I could see that there were some letters and of course, could easily figure out that these were names of the people behind this movie..... The tears are dry now, but the sadness will remain as a dark print in my heart and the visuals will haunt me for a long time. 

The tears were soon, probably only within three minutes from switching off the screen, accompanied by a massive rage, a sense of powerlessness and shame. Rage and powerlessness about the fact that these horrifying things, these crimes against humanity, happen RIGHT NOW all over the world and shame over the fact that the people committing these cruel, unspeakable acts, are not from some unknown, unfamiliar species whose brains we don't yet know enough about, but they are in fact humans. Humans, just like you and me. The shame also comes from understanding that so many people are aware, but choose to close their eyes... 

How do they sleep at night? How do they breathe? How do they even begin to justify the sheer torture these women/girls/fellow human beings are put through for the sick and sadistic needs of pleasure or desire for money that seem to drive these heartless crimes? So many questions in my little aching head.....I can not even imagine what questions are in the heads and hearts of the victims.....

Watch the trailer:
Yes, I do urge you to see this film. It is, indeed, a great film and the acting performance of Rachel Weisz is nothing less than outstanding!! ....but this is not just another fiction flick, this is reality in most places of the world, all though not known or visible to most of us, but it is there.... So what I'm trying to say is that this is not just another movie recommendation....this is a call for action. How the hell can we stop this and what can I, as an individual, do to help????

Isn't it all of our jobs to do the right thing?
