Topical

Channel 4 in the United Kingdom have yet again excelled themselves with another fantastic documentary that is currently airigng.  For those of you who download this is a must.  Interestingly they have teamed up people with severe facial deformities, congenital and as the result of trauma, with self obsessed beauty/plastic surgery addicts. 

In the first episode we meet Leo, his face was severely burnt in an accident with an oil canister as a child, and Yasmin who is addicted to beauty products. Yasmin spends up to two hours every day attaching hair pieces, fake eyelashes and layers of make up and it is her wish to have plastic surgery.  Leo is totally against her having plastic surgery in any way or form.  Leo and Yasmin are like chalk and cheese. They spend a day in each others lives with amazing consequences.

I started off thinking how shallow the young Yasmin is, but there is always two sides to a story.  Very moving.

Too many sit in judgement at people who are different from us on the outside, they should remember we are all the same on the inside and that life can sometimes  be cruel.  Never judge, just accept and your life will be an easier place to live in.
