I don’t have a blog post ready for this week. For good reasons. Being with family and friends and enjoying the breath taking beauty of fall.
So, I ask you to watch these short clips from the film “HUMAN”.
“What is it that makes us human? Is it that we love, that we fight? That we laugh ? Cry? Our curiosity ? The quest for discovery ? Driven by these questions, filmmaker and artist Yann Arthus-Bertrand spent three years collecting real-life stories from 2,000 women and men in 60 countries. Working with a dedicated team of translators, journalists and cameramen, Yann captures deeply personal and emotional accounts of topics that unite us all; struggles with poverty, war, homophobia, and the future of our planet mixed with moments of love and happiness.”
This is a challenge to you. Instead of watching the news or re-runs, or Game of Thrones, The Voice or House of Cards, watch these. These are some of the “interviews”:
(They are only a few minutes long although the “running time ” says differently. At the end of each there is a link to the movie, which is worth watching.)
We are, all of us, human.
