Well, I just cried and clapped and felt good

I urge you to spare 17 minutes of your life to watch this video. I promise you it will make you smile and cry and then applaud. Its one of those moments in your life where you will remember the good that can come from this crappy little hole of a planet (Meaning: The newspapers grind us down with misery). I am so inspired by this mans vision and the reaction of the kids involved. Knowledge is good and the hunger for it is even better.

PLEASE WATCH IT



I'm a humanitarian, I try to see the good in everything. I hate hate. I want to see changes to the misery this planet is suffering. And at the rate this planet is growing, everyone will soon hate each other for reasons they will never know. Its time to reverse those effects. Do something good. Stop spreading misery. Lose the twisty feeling you have in your gut that makes you want to spew badness. Instead, contain that energy and invent a little mood converter in your body to turn it into something good. Like this man did.

**sigh**

Amazing.

What an inspiring man..... Thanks for sharing this, Kirsty. It's how I've always felt children should be taught - not force-feeding them what they need to know to pass SATs! I'm off to look for TED.com now... :-) Jude.x

Why will "everyone" hate each other? count out the millions of Christians as we dont hate people....and we wont be starting because it says here in your post that we will!!! if we all follow the correct path instead of living in a world of greed and ridiculously pathetic must have minds like some do the world would change in seconds! Sadly the immature adults who have caused this world to be not so nice wont change and cause havoc. Go and sit in a London or other large city A&E dept for a few hours and see the drunk, drugged, stabbed etc etc and then say the world is happy in a must have pathetic society. We ALL have choices and if you dont choose the right path then sadly the must have got to get over spent , cannot coook and live on frozen processed food gangs will remain in poverty and misery.

I love TED, I first found out about it via twitter and have been hooked ever since. It is an inspiration in a sad world sometimes.

P.s. Anonymous: You have shown yourself to be an incredibly stupid person once and for all. Only you could find something negative to say after watching this man. That is if you did actually watch it?

Hey, Anonymous....welcome back! Ive missed YOU!
If you were as christian as you claim you are, you wouldnt come here and start spouting off stuff that grieves YOU.
Get happy, its such a nice feeling. Go on, try it!

Anonymous - what an interesting post!!! My family are NOT Christian and - guess what? - we ALL know how to cook and do NOT live on frozen meals in poverty and misery, getting drunk and stabbing people. We do NOT hate people, and love spending time with our family and friends, just enjoying each other for their company! In fact, some of the most selfish people I know ARE Christian! I can never understand how the MOST religious people can be the LEAST tolerant! Remember that religion is the cause of most of the troubles in the World!


(Also, we know how to use punctuation so that our sentences make sense!!!)

Wonderful - thank you for sharing Kirsty. As for anonymous, I can't understand his/her gibberish!!

Karen said...

Thank you Kirsty I'm going to go and see if I can find out more about this man and his work.

Anonymous - i feel pity for you. Please go away and take your nasty views with you.

Well done Kirsty and the rest of us humanitarians. lol Kx

I loved listening to him but its a triffle sad that it took all this 'reseach' and money from the university to discover what Ealy Years Teachers are doing day in and day out, and could have told everyone for free!

I have had the absolute pleasure to be trained by this man in the school where I teach. He is utterly amazing. He is a man with an aura of calm and knowledge. He is one of the most inspirational men I have ever met. And he has actually spoken to Arthur c Clarke... Too cool for school!!!
