I thought this one was worth the share. It made me tear up, anyway. I think too often we look at people as “us” versus “them”. It’s basic Sociology: Conflict Theory. It states that in order for society to function in an orderly fashion, we need to have a common enemy. A bit misguided perhaps but based on observed scientific fact.
Lately I feel like we have been to focused on conflict and not focused enough on having the conversations we need to create solutions.
I believe and have observed that when we draw our “us” circle just a bit bigger, the world changes for the better. It may start small: on your block, in your community or on a walk home from work – but the impact can be beyond measure.
I really enjoyed this video I got to via a friend’s Facebook page today. I didn’t necessarily need my faith in humanity restored, but it is sure nice to be affirmed sometimes.
Pass it on….
“real, honest good”….

This video pulled my heartstrings. I could help but tear up too.
