All right, if you have 30 minutes of your time, we would suggest you watch this video. We would suggest as well that political preferences, war against war opinions, possible judgements about non profit organizations, the concept of the presence of USA in foreign countries, whose financial interest is at stake and the questions about the use of online content as a form of activism, to be put aside for a moment. Let’s just be observers for the time of this video.
Whether or not you agree with this cause and the way its defended, we think that there is some things that should be highlighted here:
1. We, Tassio and Claudia, knew that Angelina and Brad got married but we didn’t know, before today, anything about Joseph Koni. We do not consume gossip media but want it or not it is around us. This is a reminder for us that we should dig deeper, look more carefully for information and filter what stays in our minds. Its a great idea to make Joseph Koni famous. We believe that the important thing here is to put a spotlight on this kind of information. At the end of the story, it is not whether we agree or not with this cause or the way its defended, but at least we know about it and we can choose to embrace it or not.
2. The notion that we can connect and share thoughts with people all around the world is very encouraging. How great is it that people’s voice get to be heard and travel so fast as to shaken their “leaders”? Direct communication empowers individuals with world wide experience and information so they can get involved locally and think globally.
Us from Terra D’Agua would like to add that sharing stuff on facebook is great! But a dip in the ocean, a hand on the soil or sitting under a waterfall can also be powerful reminders that we are all connected and responsible for each other and for the condition of this planet.
We know that this is a very controversial video and there is loads of replies about that on the internet. But we would say grab what you want (or what your heart identify with) and leave the rest…
Claudia & Tassio.
