        Choosing Hope

        This teaching module from the film "Beyond Belief" focuses on the choice two women make after their husbands are killed on September 11th. They choose action over indifference, tolerance over hate, hope over despair. Susan Retik and Patti Quigley believe that by forging meaning connections with the women of Afghanistan, they are fighting terrorism and building peace… one woman at a time. They start an organization to help Afghan war widows and rebuild their own lives in the process. It is a story of post-traumatic growth, compassion and healing.
