Sept 11, 2001 – World Trade Center, Remembering 9/11

Remembering 9/11 – Attack of the World Trade Center
I woke up to the sound of someone talking on the radio. The sun was already beating down through the bedroom window, another beautiful day I thought. I was wondering why my roommate had the radio on.

How Now Shall You Live?
How would you view others if you knew the limited time you had with them? How would you live your life if you were constantly reminded of how finite your life really is? If you knew you only had a couple years left?

This simple video shows the narration of a suburban wife and her very real struggle to “reconcile the trappings of wealthy america” and her call to morality. She looks at the poor and though she wants to help, knows she should help, struggles to do so because grinding through life is hard enough. The moral of the story goes beyond how we view the poor, but paints a picture of the human condition. That innate desire to focus on ourselves and our needs and comforts. That desire to just get …
