I have retired from public speaking but I've taken on a new project. Over the past year, I've written a pro-Life movie script loosely upon the events of my life. What am I going to do with it? Well, the next step is to find finances and expertise to produce it. That's my next task. I leave it in God's hands. See the story outline below.
JOURNEY TOWARD LOVE
This is a story
about a couple’s journey through the tragedies of abortion and catastrophic
disability. It is a story about love’s capacity to convict human hearts of sin,
transcend regrets, grief, despair and defeat to find purpose and meaning in the
value of life. It is a love story based, in part, upon my life.
Now, as an old man,
I have written a screenplay loosely based on those experiences and the power of God's
love to transcend it all. The
script has the working title of “JOURNEY TOWARD LOVE.” It straddles 2 genres:
Christian and Romance. The story spans nearly 5 decades (1969-2018). JOURNEY TOWARD LOVE is a pro-Life story.
It follows the fictional
lives of Dan and Laura Fraser from teenage lovers through the heartbreak of
abortion and trials of their marriage after Dan develops multiple
sclerosis. Dan and Laura struggle to
accept their new lives with his severe disability. At the same time, they see a
slow North American drift toward assisted suicide and euthanasia acceptance for
the sick and disabled. Dan becomes convinced he must speak against it. He and
Laura travel across Canada and America speaking to politicians, schools,
universities, churches, community groups, warning about the perils to the
incurably ill and disabled (like Dan). Dan becomes weaker as his multiple
sclerosis progresses until he is bedridden.
He loses everything, except love. And yet, in the end, Dan and Laura are at
peace with God and themselves. They discover, through their relationship with
Jesus Christ, that the only thing that really matters in life is love (both
human and divine). Laura continues to take the message to anyone who will
listen that every life is sacred from conception to natural death.
