It's been nearly 2 years since Madonna first made headlines for trying to adopt a small child from the African nation of Malawi. And she's since become a voice for the more than 1 million children or orphans in that country and now she’s behind the film on that subject and Ann had a chance to catch up with her last night.

 

I did that,  Mary, in fact, Madonna hit the red carpet at New York City’s Tribeca Film Festival last evening where her new film debuted. It's called I Am Because We Are. It’s a documentary about the struggle of these children who have been orphaned by AIDS in Malawi. And afterwards I sat down with Madonna to talk about the film and why she felt the commitment to help those children. 

 

I am because we are.

 

Something about their situation connected to me, and in a way I was going on my own journey and connecting to these children and wanting to in a way heal myself whilst helping them.

 

And hearing about their suffering? Something opened to you?

 

Yeah. I grew up as a motherless child. I had a roof over my head and I had food and I had a school to go to. And I still thought that my world was going to collapse on me, so how could it be for these children who, most of them, having lost both of their parents, having no roof over their head, no food to eat, how horrifying and frightening it must be for them!

 

You know, I wonder how this revelation came to you, you know, this is going to be a thing, you know, for you. (Yes!) This is not how people see you.

 

I think having children and having a family forces you to think about people besides yourself, I mean you don’t really have a choice, I think I just got to a point in my life. /  I thought, you know, I have so much, and it’s a great tragedy if I don’t use what I have to make the world a better place. I know that sounds silly, or cheesy, or like a cliché, whatever but it’s the truth.

 

If I was challenging people to open up their minds and their hearts, then I had to be willing to stand at the front of the line.

 

I appreciate and understand how people could be cynical, that’s fine, I accept that.

 

Why do you appreciate that people can be cynical?

 

Because I think we live in a society, that, where people are naturally suspicious of acts of altruism or generosity.

 

Or maybe they might be suspicious because they might think, well, you know, Madonna changes all the time, is this simply another fad, de jour, a trend, or just a new, is this something that is really core to Madonna.

 

My re-inventions are part of my evolution and my growth as a person. They’re aspects of it that are full of lesson. They are aspects of it that are real.

 

His name is David, I decided to try and adopt him. I don’t see how anybody who really understands how complicated it is to adopt a child could say that someone toasts to do that as a fad, it’s just too difficult, it’s too traumatic.

 

It’s been hard then to adopt David.

 

We have not even been granted the full adoption. It’s supposed to be happening in the next month. So for the last 18 months I have been a foster parent. I have been visited every 6 weeks by social workers who come into the house and make sure that you are being a good parent, and David’s health is thriving, and asking you all kinds of invasive questions, and you have to put up with it and endure it and you know, I have been fingerprinted about 20 times, and undergone psychological evaluations and I think everybody who goes through adoption has to do this, I am not alone and, but you know, I do it again.

 

You would?

 

Yeah.

 

Why?

 

Because David is amazing, because he’s brought so much joy to our lives and more than about him. And so, it was worthy. I think most people will suffer for the things they love.

 

And now at this point in your life, it seems you’re opening, to some part of you, it's softening, something that is looking for wisdom, usefulness.

 

Well, thank God. (What do you mean by that?) Well, thank God I am searching for wisdom and usefulness. Em, one hopes that one gets to that point in their lives sooner or later.

 

Do you wish that you could just be anonymous?

 

No, no, (No?) I mean, yeah, I have moments of it, but I don’t wanna wish that I am not me, I don’t wish I were someone else.

 

What is it that you want to feel about your life?

 

That my soul reached its true potential. And that I did everything that I was put on this Earth to do.

 

Which is?

 

Well, who knows. We are about to find out.

 

And it’s part of that, she also spoke to me about possibly working with orphanages and other parts of the world beyond Malawi, places like Cambodia and the Palestinian territories and she also does not discount the idea of adopting again. (Very well~) So this seems to be a new sort of beginning for her, she says.

And I still thought that my world was going to collapse on me, so how could it be for these children who, most of them, having lost both of their parents, having no roof over their head, no food to eat, how heart-firing and frightening it must be for them!

 

You know, I wonder, how this valuation came to you, you know, this is going to be a thing in and after you. This is not how people see you.

 

I think having children,and, having a family forces you to think about people besides yourself, I mean you don’t really have a choice, I think I just got 2 points of my life, I thought, you know, I have so much, and it’s a great tragedy if I don’t use what I have to make the world a better place. At least I know that sounds silly, or cheesy, or like a * whatever but it’s the truth.

 

If I was challenging people that open up their minds and their hearts then I have to be willing to stand at the front of the line.

 

I appreciate and understand help people could be cynical, that’s fine, I accept that.

 

Why you appreciate that people could be cynical?

 

Because I think we are living in a society, that, where people are actually suspicious of exist or truism or generosity.

 

Or maybe they might be suspicious because they might think, oh, you know, Madonna changes all the time, is this simply another fact the * a trend, is this a new, is this something that is really core to Madonna.

 

My reinventions are part of my evolution and my growth as a person. There’re aspects of it, there’re full of absent aspects of it, but they are real.

HOMEWORK

本来想修改一遍后抢个沙发地,结果改后已经江山定主了地,55555,唉,可惜地。总之支持麦姐地!!

 

1Man:“It’s been nearly two years since Madonna first made headlines for trying to adopt a small child for the African nation in Malawi.”

 

2Lady:“Let’s pick up her voice ‘there’re more than 1 million children of orphans in that country and now she’s behind a film of the subject thing and *** had a chance to catch up her last night.”

 

3Interviewer:“I did that and came for Madonna. Heat the red carpet in New York Cities, try back home feel last evening were her new film, they beauty, it’s called “I am because we are”. It’s a document about struggling these children of orphans by aid in Malawi and after a while, I sat down with Madonna to talk about ‘Why she found the commitment to help these children’. ”

 

4Lovely children:“I am because we are”

 

5Madonna:“Something about this situation connected to me and on the way I was going on my own journey and connecting to these children and want it to in the way hear myself , well, else to helping them.”

 

6Interviewer:“In the hearing about this suffering, something open to you.”

 

7M:“Yeah, I grew up AS a mother of a child, I had a roof in my head, I had food and I had a school to go to and I still thought my world is going to color up on me, so how could these be for these children, most of them having lost their parents, having no roof in their head and no food to eat, how horrifying and frightening must be for them”

 

8I:“You know, I wonder how these revolution come to you, you know, this is going to be a thing, you know, for you. This is not how people see you.”

 

9M:“I think having children and having a family forces you to think about people besides yourself, you know, You don’t have a choice, I think I just got the point of my life, I thought, you know, I have so much and it’s a tragedy if I don’t use what I have to make the world better place. I know that sounds silly, cheesy, or chri*** whatever, but it’s the truth.”

 

10It was challenging for people to open their minds and hearts and I had to be standing the front of line

 

11M:“I…I appreciated that you understand people could be cynical, that’s fine, I accept that.”

 

12I:“Why do you appreciate that people can be cynical.”

 

13M:“Because I think that we live in a society that where people are naturally suspicious of *** or generosity.”

 

14I:“Well, maybe they might be suspicious because they might be simple, you know, Madonna, changes all the time is simply another fad, ***, a trend. Is there new…something really core to Madonna.”

 

15M:“My real inventions are a part of my revolutions and my growth as a person. They’re aspects for that I was a listener, aspects for that I was real.”

 

16M:“His name is David. I decided to try to adopt him. I don’t see how anybody who really understands how complicated it does to be to adopt a child could save that someone toast you that is a fad. It’s just too difficult, it’s too traumatic.”

 

17I:“It’s been hard then to adopt David”

 

18M:“We have even not been granted for the adoption, it’s suppose to be happening in the next month, so for the last 18 months, I have to be forced to be a parent, I’ve been visited every six weeks by social workers who come into the house and make sure you’ve been a good parent. David’s health is thriving and as cute as others to answer questions. You have to put up with it and endure it, you know, I’ve been thinking printed about it 20 times and gone psychological evaluation. I think everybody go through the adoptions should do this, I’m not alone. But, you know, I…I’ll do it again. ”

 

19I:“You would(M:yeah),Why?”

 

20M:“Because David is amazing, because he’s got so much joy into our lives and so it’s worth it. I think most people will suffer for the things they love.”

 

21I:“And now with this point in you life since you’re opening. There’re some part of your suffering, something’s looking for wisdom, usefulness.”

 

22M:“Well, thank God…(I: what you mean by that?) Well, thank God searching for wisdom of usefulness. Ahn, one hopes, one gets that point sooner or later.”

 

23I:“Do you wish you can just be anonymous? ”

 

24M:“No, no. I mean yeah I have moments, but yeah I wish that was not me. I don’t wish I was someone else.”(Laugh)

 

25I:“What is that you want to feel about your life? ”

 

26M:“That my soul reached its true potential and that I did everything that I just put on everything else to do.”

 

27I:“Which is?"

 

28M:“Well, who knows? We’ll about to find out”

 

29And it’s a part of it. She also suppose me to be about possibly working with orphans other passing the world beyond the Malawi, places like Cambodia and Palestine territories and she also does not discount this idea of adopting again, so this seems to be a new sort of beginning for her, she says.

It's been nearly 2 years since Madonna first made headlines for trying to adopt a small child from the African nation of Malawi. And here she’s become a voice for the more than 1 million children or orphans in that country and now she’s been on the film on that subject and Ann had the chance to catch up with her last night

 

I did that American Fact. Madonna hit the red carpet at New York City’s Tribeca Film Festival last evening where her new film debuted. It's called I Am Because We Are. It’s a documentary about the struggle of these children who have been orphaned by AIDS in Malawi. And afterwards I sat down with Madonna to talk about the film and why she felt the commitment to help those children?

Something about their situation connected to me, and in a way I was going on my own journey and connecting to these children and wanting to in a way heal myself while / helping them.

 

In hearing about their suffering? Something opened to you?

 

Yeah. I grew up as a mother that has a child. I had a roof over my head and I had food and I had a school to go to. And I still thought that my world was going to collapse on me, so how could it be for these children who, most of them, having lost both of their parents, having no roof over their head, no food to eat, how horrifying and frightening it must be for them!

 

You know, I wonder, how this revelation came to you, you know, this is going to be a thing, you know, for you. This is not how people see you.

 

I think having children and having a family forces you to think about people besides yourself, I mean you don’t really have a choice, I think I just got 2 points of my life, I thought, you know, I have so much, and it’s a great tragedy if I don’t use what I have to make the world a better place.

I appreciate and understand how people could be cynical, that’s fine, I accept that.

 

Why do you appreciate that people can be cynical?

 

Because I think we live in a society, that, where people are naturally suspicious of acts of altruism or generosity.

 

Or maybe they might be suspicious because they might think, oh, you know, Madonna changes all the time, is this simply another fad, de jour, a trend, is this a new, is this something that is really core to Madonna.

 

My reinventions are part of my evolution and my growth as a person. There’re aspects of it, there’re full of absent aspects of it, but / are real.

Because David is amazing, because he’s brought so much joy to our lives and more than about him. And so, it was worth it. I think most people will suffer from the thing they love.

 

And now at this point of your life it seems you’re opening that some part of you are softening, something that is looking for wisdom, usefulness.

 

Oh, thank god. (What do you mean by that?) Well, thank god, I am searching for wisdom and usefulness and one hopes that, one gets to that point of their lives sooner or later.

 

Do you wish that you could just be anonymous?

 

No, no, I mean, yeah, I have moments of it, but I don’t I want to wish that I am not me, I don’t wish I were someone else.

I did that American Fact. Madonna hit the red carpet at New York City’s Tribeca Film Festival last evening where her new film debuted. It's called I Am Because We Are. It’s a documentary about the struggle of these children who have been orphaned by AIDS in Malawi. And afterwards I sat down with Madonna to talk about the film and why she felt the commitment to help those children?

 

I am because we are.

 

Something about their situation connected to me, and in a way I was going on my own journey and connecting to these children and wanting to in a way heal myself while helping them.

 

In hearing about their suffering? Something opened to you?

 

Yeah. I grew up as a motherless child. I had a roof over my head and I had food and I had a school to go to. And I still thought that my world was going to collapse on me, so how could it be for these children who, most of them, having lost both of their parents, having no roof over their head, no food to eat, how horrifying and frightening it must be for them!

 

You know, I wonder, how this revelation came to you, you know, this is going to be a thing, you know, for you. This is not how people see you.

 

I think having children and having a family forces you to think about people besides yourself, I mean you don’t really have a choice, I think I just got to the point of my life,where, I thought, you know, I have so much, and it’s a great tragedy if I don’t use what I have to make the world a better place. I know that sounds silly, or cheesy, or like a cliché, whatever but it’s the truth.

 

If I was challenging people that open up their minds and their hearts, then I have to be willing to stand at the front of the line.

 

I appreciate and understand how people could be cynical, that’s fine, I accept that.

 

Why do you appreciate that people can be cynical?

 

Because I think we live in a society, that, where people are naturally suspicious of acts of altruism or generosity.

 

Or maybe they might be suspicious because they might think, oh, you know, Madonna changes all the time, is this simply another fad, de jour, a trend, is this a new, is this something that is really core to Madonna.

 

My reinventions are part of my evolution and my growth as a person. There’re aspects of it, there’re full of absent aspects of it, but are real.

 

His name is David, I decided to try to adopt him, I don’t see how anybody who really understands how complicated it is to adopt a child could say that, someone toasts to do that as a fad, it’s just too difficult, it’s too traumatic.

 

It’s been hard then to adopt David.

 

We have not even been granted the full adoption. It’s supposed to be happening in the next month. So for the last 18 months I have been a foster parent. I have been visited every 6 weeks by social workers who come into the house and make sure that you are being a good parent, and David’s health is thriving, and asking you all kinds of invasive questions, and you have to put up with it and endure it and you know, I have been thinking to print it about 20 times, and undergone psychological evaluations and I think everybody who goes adoption has to do this, I am not alone, but you know, I do it again.

 

You would?

 

Yeah.

 

Why?

 

Because David is amazing, because he’s brought so much joy to our lives and more than about him. And so, it was worth it. I think most people will suffer from the thing they love.

 

And now at this point of your life it seems you’re opening that some part of you are softening, something that is looking for wisdom, usefulness.

 

Oh, thank god. (What do you mean by that?) Well, thank god, I am searching for wisdom and usefulness and one hopes that, one gets to that point of their lives sooner or later.

 

Do you wish that you could just be anonymous?

 

No, no, I mean, yeah, I have moments of it, but I don’t I want to wish that I am not me, I don’t wish I were someone else.

 

What it is that you want to feel about your life?

 

That my soul reached its true potential. And that I did everything that I was put on the search to do.

 

Which is?

 

Oh, who knows. We are about to find out.

 

And it’s part of that, she also spoke to me about possibly working with orphanages and other parts of the world beyond Malawi, places like Cambodia, the Palestinian territories and she also does not discount the idea of adopting again. So it seems to be a new sort of beginning for her.

It's been nearly 2 years since Madonna first made headlines for trying to adopt a small child from the African nation of Malawi. And she's since become a voice for the more than 1 million children or orphans in that country and now she’s behind the film on that subject and Ann had a chance to catch up with her last night.

 

I did that,  Mary, in fact, Madonna hit the red carpet at New York City’s Tribeca Film Festival last evening where her new film debuted. It's called I Am Because We Are. It’s a documentary about the struggle of these children who have been orphaned by AIDS in Malawi. And afterwards I sat down with Madonna to talk about the film and why she felt the commitment to help those children. 

 

I am because we are.

 

Something about their situation connected to me, and in a way I was going on my own journey and connecting to these children and wanting to in a way heal myself whilst helping them.

 

And hearing about their suffering? Something opened to you?

 

Yeah. I grew up as a motherless child. I had a roof over my head and I had food and I had a school to go to. And I still thought that my world was going to collapse on me, so how could it be for these children who, most of them, having lost both of their parents, having no roof over their head, no food to eat, how horrifying and frightening it must be for them!

 

You know, I wonder how this revelation came to you, you know, this is going to be a thing, you know, for you. (Yes!) This is not how people see you.

 

I think having children and having a family forces you to think about people besides yourself, I mean you don’t really have a choice, I think I just got to a point in my life. /  I thought, you know, I have so much, and it’s a great tragedy if I don’t use what I have to make the world a better place. I know that sounds silly, or cheesy, or like a cliché, whatever but it’s the truth.

 

If I was challenging people to open up their minds and their hearts, then I had to be willing to stand at the front of the line.

 

I appreciate and understand how people could be cynical, that’s fine, I accept that.

 

Why do you appreciate that people can be cynical?

 

Because I think we live in a society, that, where people are naturally suspicious of acts of altruism or generosity.

 

Or maybe they might be suspicious because they might think, well, you know, Madonna changes all the time, is this simply another fad, de jour, a trend, or just a new, is this something that is really core to Madonna.

 

My re-inventions are part of my evolution and my growth as a person. They’re aspects of it that are full of lesson. They are aspects of it that are real.

 

His name is David, I decided to try and adopt him. I don’t see how anybody who really understands how complicated it is to adopt a child could say that someone toasts to do that as a fad, it’s just too difficult, it’s too traumatic.

 

It’s been hard then to adopt David.

 

We have not even been granted the full adoption. It’s supposed to be happening in the next month. So for the last 18 months I have been a foster parent. I have been visited every 6 weeks by social workers who come into the house and make sure that you are being a good parent, and David’s health is thriving, and asking you all kinds of invasive questions, and you have to put up with it and endure it and you know, I have been fingerprinted about 20 times, and undergone psychological evaluations and I think everybody who goes through adoption has to do this, I am not alone and, but you know, I do it again.

 

You would?

 

Yeah.

 

Why?

 

Because David is amazing, because he’s brought so much joy to our lives and more than about him. And so, it was worthy. I think most people will suffer for the things they love.

 

And now at this point in your life, it seems you’re opening, to some part of you, it's softening, something that is looking for wisdom, usefulness.

 

Well, thank God. (What do you mean by that?) Well, thank God I am searching for wisdom and usefulness. Em, one hopes that one gets to that point in their lives sooner or later.

 

Do you wish that you could just be anonymous?

 

No, no, (No?) I mean, yeah, I have moments of it, but I don’t wanna wish that I am not me, I don’t wish I were someone else.

 

What is it that you want to feel about your life?

 

That my soul reached its true potential. And that I did everything that I was put on this Earth to do.

 

Which is?

 

Well, who knows. We are about to find out.

 

And it’s part of that, she also spoke to me about possibly working with orphanages and other parts of the world beyond Malawi, places like Cambodia and the Palestinian territories and she also does not discount the idea of adopting again. (Very well~) So this seems to be a new sort of beginning for her, she says.

 

 

You're waiting for a train, a train that will take you far away. You know where you hope this train will take you, but you can't be sure. But it doesn't matter - because we'll be together.


Go the extra mile!
