It’s practically an article of faith for me that there’s always another way of looking at things. Sometimes “the other way” is threatening, or surprising, or funny.
But sometimes it’s positively hopeful.
I think on my really bad days when I feel despair at the possibility that human stupidity, arrogance, violence, or sheer selfishness is going to mean the end of life for all of us on this planet, I’m going to revisit this u-tube. It was written by a 20-year-old for a contest entitled “u@fifty.” Maybe human creativity and generosity and a sheer love of all of life will win out after all.
Be sure to listen – and read – it all the way back to the beginning. Or you’ll miss it.
