Response to chip, 11 November 2005
Author: kristie_eggert from United States

I ask you chiphaubrock, would you stand face to face with all the students, teachers and citizens of Whitwell, Tennessee who gave their time, their hearts and their all to this project and tell them that everything they have done was just ridiculous busy work? Would you tell Peter Schroeder and Dagmar Schroeder-Hildebrand, White House correspondents, that their interest in what these children were trying to achieve was misplaced and their efforts to assist in the success of the project was wasted? The quantity of paper clips was to give the children a tangible visualization of just how many six million was. This was a life changing experience for many people and hopefully for many more that will watch this documentary. However, there will always be people like you who will try to find something bad to harp about and try to discredit the good. It's also people like you who discourage and belittle the pride and the efforts of our youth who are trying to learn from the past in order to change the future and striving to send the message out to everyone in hopes of reaching someone who was not afforded the chance to learn what they have learned. I wonder how, if you watched the documentary, can you spew such hurtful and unnecessary comments when hatred, ignorance, awareness, change and hope are the most important points in the message of the film. Awareness and change can only be achieved from within, one person at a time and I think it would be a wonderful idea for you to begin with yourself. To the students, teachers and citizen's of Whitwell as well as everyone else the world over that contributed to this amazing project, my new awareness and appreciation which I will pass on to my children is thanks to your unselfishness, time and hard work. Thank you
