When I first saw Paperclips, I was blown away. This touching and poignant documentary chronicles a small Tennessee school’s journey to collect 6 million paperclips, one for each person who perished in the Holocaust. Children of a Whitwell middle school write to friends, family, celebrities, foundations, etc. explaining their project and asking them to send in a paperclip. What happens as a result is something so moving, so miraculous, that I have chills just writing about it.
I encourage you with all my heart to add this movie to your Netflix queue…or search around and see if you can watch it online. I am almost willing to guarantee that you will love it, or at least be inspired by it.
At a time when our world seems to be falling apart, Paperclips appears as a beacon of light, a hope and maybe an assurance that the world CAN change…one small step at a time.
