The Pantry is based on true stories drawn from offices around Hong Kong. The film, which is the first in a series from AD Media, aims to raise awareness and hopes to inspire LGBT and LGBT-friendly citizens to break their silence and stand up for human rights.
My friend Angie Palmer is in it :)
‘Why do people shout in anger shout at each other?’
Disciples thought for a while, one of them said,’Because we lose our calm, we shout.’
‘But, why should you shout when the other person is just next to you? You can as well tell him what you have to say in a soft manner.’asked the saint
Disciples gave some other answers but none satisfied the other disciples.
Finally the saint explained:
‘When two people are angry at each other, their hearts distance a lot. To cover that distance they must shout to be able to hear each other. The angrier they are, the stronger they will have to shout to hear each other to cover that great distance.
What happens when two people fall in love? They don’t shout at each other but talk softly, Because their hearts are very close. The distance between them is either nonexistent or very small…’
The saint continued,’When they love each other even more, what happens? They do not speak, only whisper’n they get even closer to each other in their love. Finally they even need not whisper, they only look at each other’n that’s all. That is how close two people are when they love each other.’
He looked at his disciples and said.
‘So when you argue do not let your hearts get distant, Do not say words that distance each other more, Or else there will come a day when the distance is so great that you will not find the path to return.’
In 2012, you fought for clean water in India and clean forests in Canada; you saved homes in Germany and hospitals in Spain; you protected survivors of sexual assault in New Zealand and survivors of domestic violence in the United States.
You and 25 million people made all of this happen — and so much more — by starting, signing, and sharing petitions on Change.org.
We’re blown away by all you accomplished in 2012, but we know this is just the beginning. We can’t wait to see what you’ll do in 2013.
