first day of my life

I'm so glad I braved the freezing weather to see this film about the Chinese immigrant workers who died cockling at Morecambe Bay in 2004. I will think twice now about where the meat and vegetables I buy at Sainsbury's come from. And next time I moan about my living conditions or my job, I will also think about others' desperation which I so fortunately do not have to suffer. I will also visit the Ghosts website and make a donation to help raise the £500,000 pay off the debts of the workers' families still struggling to pay the money lenders. See it. What we saw on the news is not even half the story.
