“Philomena” beautifully demonstrates…

The film “Philomena” demonstrates a time when punishment & a “good tongue” lashing to straighten out the right from wrong – yet all it produces is guilt & shame that eats away at the Spirit and finally devours it. Unless you are willing to look, to explore and journey to the Unknown AND realize forgiveness, understanding & compassion are the answers towards growth and evolution.
Fearlessness and courage takes you there – Yes, Philomena had help, attracted a journalist by willing to be vulnerable, willing to face her shame & guilt and share it with her daughter so a chance meeting took her on the journey of truth to face her worse fears that her son had suffered and had forgotten her. Yet she found he had flourished in some areas of his life and he had not forgotten his roots and even honored them in his passing.
