A nice waltz through a tiny French village that ends with this sermon by Pere Henri:
“I don’t want to talk about Jesus’ divinity, I’d rather talk about his humanity.
How he lived his life here on earth, his kindness, his tolerance.
We can’t go around measuring our goodness by what we don’t do, by what we deny ourselves, what we resist and who we exclude.
I think we’ve got to measure our goodness by what we embrace, what we create and who we include.”
The Raj Thackeray’s of this world ought to take some inspiration from this. It is easy to hate, it is easy to blame and point fingers. What is hard is introspection.
Prof. Randy Pausch spoke at the commencement for the Carnegie Mellon batch of ’08. Randy is terminally ill and 9 months ago, doctors had given him only 6 months to live. His talk is truly inspiring – follow your dreams and find your passion. Take 6 minutes of your day to watch it through to the end.
