Architects of a New Dawn

We’d like to show the side of the world you don’t normally see on television.

I am interrupting your life to share something I found online that I think is so simple and well, very brilliant!!!

It says a lot about the potential and the hopes of my generation. That's why I think it is important enough to share with you.

So I really hope you will trust me on this and take a minute and 44 seconds to watch and LISTEN to this video from the link below my message. Turn your speakers on please.

At a meeting of the AARP (American Association of Retired People) they showed a video that was submitted in a contest by a 20 year old. The contest was titled 'u @ 50'.

This video won second place. When they showed it, everyone in the room was awe-struck and broke into spontaneous applause.

So please, Please, PLEASE take the minute and 44 seconds to enjoy and watch it.

Then let me know if you don't agree.

Beautiful! There are so many ways we can all make this a better world. But it boils down to...will you (meaning anyone) decide to do something? Staying positive, sharing, caring, being open, being educated on what is going on, speaking up, planting trees, using and buying less, reduce reuse, recycle, pray, meditate,  work and act for Peace. Share time with others. Notice beauty. Love.

Peace to All.

Working with youth is my calling. This video brought tears to my eyes. When I need to hear the truth it comes from my children! Thanks for sharing.

OK... I watched it again and started crying like a baby... this is really a moving piece... everyone should watch it at least twice...

Thank you, Robert - I will be showing this to my son (also 13) - it's heartening to know that there are more switched on young people than the media would have us believe! Arguably, that could be one of the major issues to address thereby eradicating the closed mindset and preprogramming in favour of encouraging hope, faith in the future and boundless optimism - all of which can be found amongst the Architects I have met here!!!
Much love & light, Netta
