Did anybody watch Go Back To Where You Came From? It was a 3 part doco on SBS about 6 Australians who get taken on a journey to different parts of the world to experience the plight of refugees and boat people.
I didn't catch all of it, some of the first ep, and then all of the last, but I thought it was really great. It was also very heart-wrenching. It should be compulsory viewing for every Australian. Being on SBS though, it was probably to an extent preaching to the converted.
It's easy to say of the contestants, 'tsk tsk you were so bigoted', and also of the AM talkback radio listening and Today Tonight watching public 'you should be watching this.' but I also found it pretty convicting personally.
I'm often way too apathetic, not taking enough notice of the terrible plight that people are going through around the world, and closer to home. And not only that, I'm often in a state of ho hum about my own life circumstances, rather than seeing daily how richly blessed I am, and just how much I have to thank God for.
