I am tearing from this video because I can't help to think that if my mother would have taken this message during my teenage years and put all that technology and rushing aside, she would have built a lovely relationship with me. Technology ruins people and families.

Definitly worth fighting for
Thank you. Once again you brought tears to my eyes. I love nature, the amazing creatures and phenomena that Hakodosh Boruch Hu has put into our world. We should take the time to thank our creator, not just for the beautiful world He gave us, but for the senses He gave us to enjoy this magnificent gift. Not only can we see, we see in color and depth, not only can we smell, we can identify smells, not only do we feel, we can feel textures and differences. So when you finally do stop to smell the roses, think about how beautifully Our Creator created us, as well.

This was such a beautiful and inspiring film. What I really loved about it was how true the message is. People are always rushing today...to where?...for what? Most of them don't even know. People are just so scared to face themselves and to take the time looking deeper then their careers, the money they are making and the vacations that they take. The cycle is endless. Were not here forever, so take advantage of all the beauty that G-d has put into His magnificent world...it is here for us to enjoy!
