Speak Out 11/14/11 (11/14/11)
IF I had a teen age 14 or older, I would encourage them to go see "Sarah's Key." If you can't read, you won't want to see it because it is a foreign film and you must read it.

Our youths need to be reminded of how terrible this world can be and was at one time and that we must never let it happen again...
