Sometimes the things human beings do, in their ignorance and fear, are monstrous. Ann's face looking into the eyes of that white hood and becoming frozen - you just knew she'd experienced something monstrous. And yet when becoming aware of the wound of the "monster" she couldn't help but ONLY see the human being inside, hopeless and hurting. This is a big story, even bigger than black/white, man/woman, rich/poor. It is just one more story that illustrates that sometimes the only thing that divides human beings is ignorance and programming - and that is hard to get out from under.
if you see something, or are doing something, or are enabling something that feels in your gut to be wrong or horrifically wrong, yet you fear listening to your gut and doing something about it, understand that once you are brave enough to allow yourself to see past your programming and really look at it instead of putting your head back in the sand - once you take that first step out of your comfort "safety" zone, your fear will evaporate and you will become bold. ...and you see here, I stopped being afraid of run-on sentences : ) )
“Be bold and mighty forces will come to your aid.” Johann Wolfgang von Goethe (1749-1832)
