It's been another great fundraising day! Today, the Albert and Trudy Kallis Foundation, an organization that supports original documentary programming, made a $1000 pledge to the American Sex Offender project through kickstarter. They also offered continuing support and help during the development of the film, and I am excited to have access to the expertise they can offer.
I was reading an email from a registrant on my phone while eating lunch today. He was sharing the frustration of many years of dealing with being on the 'sex offender' registry when he wrote, "I see no end until I'm dead... and they will probably put a monitor in my casket."
I laughed out loud sitting there in the restaurant... I've chuckled all day every time I recall the line. Woody Allen said once that there is more insight in jokes than in volumes of books on philosophy, and I think that applies here... it's funny because it's true. It's true that to many people in the world, the "sex offender" label seems even more permanent than death.
A label is a label, and it's never the whole story. My goal is to bring the other side of the story to the world. You backers are helping SO much to make it happen. Let's keep it going. :)
