Today, Bill Brown came to talk to the 7th and 8th graders about his experience producing The Hiding Place and to talk about one of his good friends, Corrie ten Boom. Bill Brown is 85 years old and he came with his daughter-in-"love", Alicia. He broke his hip a while ago and had third degree burns on his leg, it was hard for me to see such an amazing man hurt. Mr. Brown started off by telling us about how hard it was to produce the movie and get everything in order. He had a very tough time getting enough money and costumes to produce the movie and even film it because the Billy Graham organization couldn't afford the movie. Luckily, the public donated money and costumes to the movie and it obviously had a very good outcome. The Hiding Place made a really big impact on me because it helped me visualize what the people in the concentration camps were going through. Mr. Brown showed us photos of Corrie and explained to us how full of love she was. The story that stuck in my head was the one when the concentration camp guard asked Corrie for forgiveness and how the Lord gave her the love to love him. When I walked away from the classroom and the talk that Bill Brown gave us, I realized that love and God transforms us and makes us so much better people. I see love as the biggest law of God and Jesus; love your neighbor as yourself. Corrie was so full of love and so selfless and I truly appreciate Bill Brown for helping me realize that God has a plan for all of us.
