A Very Powerful, Short Doc: Carissa

I don't even know where to begin with this. I'm often curious to see how far these kinds of documentaries will go in terms of getting to the deep and unpleasantly dark core of reality, but this one has done it. This is the story of Carissa, a former youth sex-trade worker who eventually went on to graduate from UCLA and become a spokesperson for Virgin Mobile's Regeneration Campaign for the awareness of youth homelessness.

I won't speak too much about the video; my summary of it would quite simply do nothing but tarnish its beauty. So, please just take a moment to watch it and share it with any and every one whom you think may need to see it.
