A couple of years ago, one of our more prominent members was called out by another member for posting "random posts." Discussion raged for a couple of days, and even a poll ensued:
So be forewarned -- this post has nothing to do with travel or Marriott. So if you're going to go all snarky, click out now!
What it does have to do with is the notion that kindness and caring go a long way -- even more so when it's a random act. The following mini-documentary is the perfect balm for cynicism in today's hectic, jumbled world. I've also attached a news article about the movie from the Kansas City Star. Enjoy.
Great video. I hope everyone takes the time to watch it. Thanks for posting the link foxglove.
I heard the NPR interview with the filmmaker, who gave them permission to post it on the TTBOOK website. I went home, pulled it up, watched it, and have been sharing it ever since. Glad you liked it.
[And for anyone thinking this may violate intellectual property or copyright laws, the link is to TTBOOK, which has the filmmaker's permission to broadcast it.]
What a wonderful story! It gives me hope, while making me a little teary at the same time. Thank you, foxglove -- random posts DO have worth!
You're welcome, Sledchick. I'd be lying if I said I make it through without still welling up a little. But I love its message of kindness and compassion, and anyone can do it.
Powerful.....what a message!!
I'm so glad I took a few minutes to watch this, for those who don't you are missing out on a wonderful part of life called kindness and compassion just as foxglove noted.
Thanks so much for posting this and giving up hope that good lives on even when you're struggling with what you've been handed.
