Laura Dunn and Unforeseen

It's exciting to find someone to admire. I find it easy to look backward for heroes or people to emulate. Lately, several people have come to my notice and have produced a new phase of optimism and interest. Watching opinionated screaming pundits has a tendency to deaden my mind so it's no wonder that seeing the interview on Bill Moyers Journal with Laura Dunn regarding her new documentary, Unforeseen, gives me fresh insight and makes me wonder if I've been looking for heroes in all the wrong places.

As the clash between developers, environmentalists and neighborhoods grows, there are few places where each truth is shown. Ms. Dunn's ability to show all sides of the story without casting blame or throwing rocks appealed to me and made it much easier for me to find a piece of another point of view which might change my thinking at some point.

The world is changing and it's not always a place I want to go. But until I can see the other side's agenda I have a tendency to hard-headedly stick to my own opinion and when a person such as Laura Dunn can present both sides of an issue without rancor, it strikes me as being a profitable venture.

I'm anxious to see her full presentation.
