Real, truthful, and extraordinary....

"While the previous reviewer's title "Stockholm Syndrome on Steroids" is cute and catchy, nothing could be farther from the truth about the book (Beirut Diary) and the movie it became "Held Hostage". Sis Levin was never held hostage, so how do her words and actions fit into the accusations of "Stockholm Syndrome"? I am a medical professional who has been on missions in the Middle East and Central America and I found Dr. Sis Levin's accounts acccurate and tremendously profound. It is so easy and even natural to hate and plot revenge.....and those who expound upon the true Christian values of forgiveness and understanding have always been ridiculed. The incredible bravery of Sis and Jerry, then and now, deserves far more than to be sneered at by the obviously jaded previous reviewer.....but then those who seek to improve humanity and lift us as a race of people to a higher plain have always been condemned as "crackpots". The Levins are not "crackpots, they are The Real Deal. I highly recommend this DVD."
