Mom's proud!

Yesterday, we were notified that ARL was cast in a movie!! It's a "short" about terrorism in a post 9/11 world. She will play the role of Madeline, a first grader, who finds a bomb in her classroom. Her teacher is Muslim and is the target. Before 9/11, the teacher had won awards for teaching and was quite loved by students and parents alike; after 9/11 the principal receives many calls from angry parents who want him fired.  He becomes the target simply because he is Muslim.

Shooting takes place in Philadelphia! This is ARL's first paid role! Being so small really helped her land the part. She is the size of a first grader but has no problem memorizing lines and acting.

So proud of you baby...I always knew you were a drama queen!

That is so cool! It is a sad plot. There is much too much judgement made in this world based on multicultural differences. Good luck! Have a great night!
