Yes, our government is shutdown, Healthcare.gov is a mess, the economy is being held hostage, and debt ceiling deadline is fast approaching. Things are headed in a sad direction, but still there people out there who do these little random acts of kindness. These fellow humans being the best of us.
But you know what? Life is short. We are here, we struggle against all odds in a universe that is completely ambivalent to our existence. It has little concern for our fate, whether that fate is amazingly satisfying or sad.
We tumble through this world in a vague attempt to do something from time to time that brings happiness.
But sometimes we forget in all the chaos that we are here together. We struggle together. We are not a single candle lit in the darkness. We are many candles- millions of candles- billions of candles. We exist in this life alongside other human beings and there are times that we should see nothing in another human being but the need to be helped.
I found this video during one of forays into the internet and it brought a smile to my face. It gave me a short moment of introspection. It is only a passing moment, but embrace it.
Watch as what the best of humanity do when the average of humanity fails to.
