erinloechner a small snippet of a larger piece I wrote for @clementinedaily today about the controversy surrounding a film I was featured in, #americanblogger :

I see a filmmaker who chose to represent a small sliver of a large, vast community – one that cannot be defined within the length of a feature film. Bloggers are doctors and fathers and professors and scientists and grandparents and hairstylists and decorators, and this film depicts but a grain of sand.

Yet it is my firm belief that a grain of sand – when offered together – can provide solace and dry land from stormy waters.

I find it unsettling that the harshest critics of this film trailer are bloggers themselves – those who felt the film silenced their voice or excluded their group. Yet it is my truest belief that – in a world where we can publish our innermost thoughts to the far corners of the world – the only voices left silent are those that fall on deaf ears.

We are not for lack of voices. We are for lack of listeners, those who hear with intention and speak with grace. Listeners who are open to learning more about a small sliver of a counter-culture (inspirational blogs) within an even larger counter-culture (blogs). Listeners who do not argue prejudice with prejudice or squeak wheels with oily words.

It would seem, then, that to tell our stories we must first listen with a willing ear and an open heart. Otherwise, we’re little more than a lost grain of sand scattered about a busy, crowded pavement.
