Day 313 Question 313:
What is your favorite documentary and why?
The story of a band of brothers who travel the world in search of the answers to the burning questions: Who am I? Who is Man? Why do we search for meaning? Their journey brings them into the middle of the lives of the homeless on the streets of New York City, the orphans and disabled children of Peru, and the abandoned lepers in the forests of Ghana, Africa. What the young men discover changes them forever. Through one-on-one interviews and real life encounters, the brothers are awakened to the beauty of the human person and the resilience of the human spirit.
I introduced this documentary to my mom yesterday. I thought Thanksgiving would be the perfect day to watch it again and share it with her for the first time. This documentary is the essence of what humankind and humanity should be. I would love to explain it in great detail because it is something that I could watch over and over again but I would rather people experience it for themselves if they are able to. It is a story of forgiveness and a story of beauty….what beauty really is and really means. It is a story of friendship and unity. It is a story of compassion and empathy.
There is no better time than now….this story is beautiful and it something that I believe everyone should see. I believe you can find it on Netflix. I even bought a very inexpensive copy to have of my own on Amazon. It might even be on youtube for free. Trust me, it is worth seeing…it will change your life. :0)
