Dedicated to the admirable people that made the movie in 1961
Peter Brook's film adaptation of William Golding's classic moral parable has been praised as one of those rare instances in which the movie is better than the book. Shot in black and white the resulting stark images add depth and weight to this chilling study of the inherent defects of society and man. Released 1963
A new release of "LORD OF THE FLIES" (1963) from The Criterion Collection will hit the stores July 16, 2013 in DVD and Blu-ray format.

GAY TEEN SUICIDE
Teen suicide victim hangs himself from barn rafters
GREENSBURG, Ind. (WISH) - Billy Lucas committed suicide September 9th. Some say he'd been bullied and it pushed him over the edge.
His Myspace page begins "Well I guess my name is Billy!" He won ribbons showing his animals saying "I love my horses, I love by club lambs. They are the world to me."
He may have lived in a world many are just beginning to understand. He spent his last hours with those animals. His mom last saw him around 8 p.m. that night as he put up the horses. In the police report she says he "was acting strange earlier and called 911...he told the dispatcher he was causing problems for his mom and people should come". She told police she didn't know why he called and told dispatchers there was no problem and not to come.
Billy had been suspended from school that day. Friends say he was fighting back with cuss words against the bullies. They say girls were harassing him in class when he stood up and let the words spew. He was suspended.
Billy's mom told Karen Hensel Wednesday night, "Yes, he was bullied. I don't know why he did this. Yes, I did talk to the school." His sister Abby says, "The community let us down." Friends say the mother didn't want an obituary or funeral because she didn't want those kids who had hurt him to see him.
"You're Not Alone" is a song dedicated to:
Seth Walsh, 13 years old
12 year old singer/songwriter Caleb Flood-Goldstick wrote and performs "You're Not Alone" in memory of these teenagers & with the hope that other kids who are gay, think they may be gay or are thought of as gay know that they have support.
Caleb's dream is that no other kid should suffer or die as a consequence of homophobia.

Horror of innocent carnage, the pain and suffering by those with loved ones involved..is almost too much for anyone to contemplate. Our prayers are with those suffering from this tragedy.
The images in the movie "Lord of the Flies" were all staged and not a one of the boys were hurt, but Beslan is real. The Lord of the Flies is alive and well in our world today. Beslan reveals the point that William Golding made with his book/movie of the inherent EVIL of mankind
Here are two Chernobyl tales with pictures, "Ghost Town" was written in 2003 and "Land of the Wolves" was written in 2005.
