While I still recommend that you read the book for I love this book, it is a good starting point. Learn to unconditionally love yourself and begin to find your truth and worthiness.

Paper Clips – this documentary takes place in the Southern US in the small rural town of Whitwell, Tennessee. The townspeople are primarily white Protestant with little to no diversity.  Two eighth grade school teachers recognized the importance of teaching children about tolerance, acceptance and compassion for others or those that are different.  This led to the study of the Holocaust, a time of heightened intolerance, which led to the death of 6 million Jews and five million others that did not fit into the Aryan stereotype.  The children of this town are the most important participants in this journey towards a greater understanding. Inspired and encouraged by the teachers, the young students of this rural town collected one paper clip for every life lost in the Holocaust – ultimately collecting 30 million paper clips. In establishing a moving memorial, the young children demonstrated the power of compassion and hope, and possibility that peace really can be achieved. I would go so far as to say it is the youth that drives the process of growth, transformation and learning, and the youth who will break these cycles of hatred and intolerance which have spanned many generations.  There is not a person in this small Tennessee town that has not been impacted. Go to www.paperclipsmovie.com. I encourage people of all ages to see this movie. I was moved and inspired by this work. I know that schools from Canada have put together their own projects to make a difference.
