Amazing Grace

I knew something of the story of William Wilberforce, and the movie, Amazing Grace, made his story all the more moving.

It's a story of a man's passion, and how his unrelenting drive to abolish slavery has changed the West from a civilization that employs slavery to one that abhors it.

While we don't often think of it, slavery still exists even in modern America, where tens of thousands are believed bound by economic bondage, particularly those who have been trafficked into the country.

It's worth seeing.
