What a great start to this historic day! BTC thanks all the Hastings area students who helped make our UK debut a hit – we don’t know of any other time the White Rock Theatre has seen over 1000 students, plus a couple New York police officers, an internationally acclaimed author, and a onetime gang member all get together! You guys were great – a very attentive audience. From what you told us afterwards, Sergio’s message, particularly, hit home: no matter what ideas Hollywood might try to put in your head, there is nothing glamorous about gang culture. “I was willing to die for my street corner, but my street corner wasn’t willing to die for me,” is how Sergio put it. Many of you went home with a free copy of Johann Christoph Arnold’s book Why Forgive?. If you’ve had a chance to read it, we’d love to hear your comments on it.
