searching


Two years ago I stumbled upon an amazing woman. Most of you know, I was in SPO at the time and I decided to bring her to campus to tell her story.

Her story...
In the documentary Searching for Angela Shelton, filmmaker Angela Shelton journeys across the United States meeting other Angela Sheltons in an effort to survey women in America. She discovers that 24 out of the 40 Angela Sheltons she spoke to had been raped, beaten or molested. (now 28 out of 40) Then the filmmaker meets an Angela Shelton who tracks sexual predators and lives in the same town as the filmmaker's father who molested her and her step siblings for years.

She came, had a wonderful and emotional show. I even got to spend the rest of the afternoon with her - which was exciting for me. She on the other hand was probably thinking 'get me home!'

Then, I did some searching for myself...on myspace. I searched for Angela and found her. Lovely as ever, she appears happy and in a very good space. A movie is in progress about the documentary, which she is pumped about.

Consider watching her documentary. It's quite the eye-opener. Words cannot even begin to describe the journey that was captured.

Thank you so much! And no, I wasn't thinking "get me home." I was thinking "damn, he's hot."
