a new language means a new vision of life

I have just received this email from a colleague and I have felt the urge to share it with you although you have probably seen it or heard about it. It has certainly made a deep impression on me… suffice to say that I couldn’t help crying. I am not ashamed of it but I would be  if it hadn’t stirred me in some way or other.
We live in the First World surrounded by luxury and superfluous things. We only care about our present even though we are  all well aware of the consequences of all our excesses but we feel no remorse by thinking that all these hot issues should be discussed and dealt with somewhere else and by politicians . We always think we can do nothing and we keep on living , putting the blame on others when we see wars, famine and  destruction  and then , we listen to this 13-year-old girl and realize that we could do something only if we wanted to.  Watch the 7:53 minutes ; it is worth it.
I want a world for my children and for my grandchildren but also for my great-great…and all the generations to come. Don’t you want the same?

  1. Elena Said,

    No, Cristina, I’d never seen this video before, not even heard of it, although it has been around for a long time, it seems.
    It has made me cry too, but also feel relieved that it’s been so, since that means my heart hasn’t hardened too much throughout the years being a member of that “privileged” group of countries who buy and throw away, buy and throw away without realizing that we are throwing away our world at the same time.
