Philadelphia

by Barb
(Middletown DE USA)

A movie that I would consider life changing, for me, was the movie Philadelphia. The movie came out in 1993, at the height of the Aids epidemic. Philadelphia is about a young attorney who contracts the Aids virus. He loses his job and brings a lawsuit against the firm that fired him because he was sick. The movie highlights people's ignorance about Aids and it highlights one man's struggles because of the disease.


Prior to watching this movie I had never put a human face on the disease. In my mind it was a disease that people got because of poor choices. I'm fairly positive that I was quietly judgmental. I didn't voice my opinion about people who contracted Aids but I'm sure I thought they were immoral and probably deserved what they got.

How wrong I was. This movie taught me about Aids and the progression of the disease. It also taught me that nobody "deserved" to get sick and not everyone got the disease because of poor life choices. Because of this movie I made a decision to learn more about Aids. Initially I was ashamed of the way I had looked at Aids and the people who contracted it. I completely changed the way I thought about many things, not only Aids. I learned to be less judgmental about people. Nobody knows the struggles that someone is facing and what determines the decisions they make. We all do the best we can do with what God gives us to work with. A little tolerance goes a long way.
