I am in shock

I rarely write about the company I work for, my personal life, or my beliefs.
But, SAP has just done something truly amazing. They released a movie that you can see here.

The movie shows the grieving patents of a young gay man that in desperation took his own life. It then interviews a number of SAP employees (including at least one I know) about their experiences.

Not only does SAP make and release this movie with a message of hope for all young gays, but the movie includes words from one of the company’s co-CEOs, and two executives from the Palo Alto office.

I am not gay, but that does not stop me feeling for the young people who face adversity (as so clearly shown in the film) because they are born with a different orientation.

I am in shock that a corporate giant made this movie, and very proud to be one of their 60,000 employees.
