This youtube link can be put in a global context and when I do, I cry tears of joyful possibility…
The hopes of the little girl who goes to a crumbling school in KwaZulu are the same as the dreams of the boy who learns on the streets of LA;
we will remember that there is something happening in our Planet;
that we are not as divided as our politics suggests;
that we are one people;
we are one nation;
and together, we will begin the next great chapter in Earth’s story with three words that will ring from coast to coast;
from sea to shining sea – Yes. We. Can.
It’s simple these 3 words… say them , be them and create new ways of what we can again and again
Yes we can … support each other
YES WE CAN create good news
Yes We can live joyfully together
YES WE CAN!!!
So EXCITING!!! Together with The Upliftment Programme, we have created this joyful, inspiring little 1minute film – “ONE WORD” and your vote can support us with a JOYful win!
Looking around these days, evidence of stress and depression is obvious. Few people seem to be laughing or smiling and the majority seem so caught up in resignation and cynisism. Yet coming from South Africa, I am part of a community super conscious of the power that individuals can have, our very own Madiba (Nelson Mandela) is a precious example of this. So I reckon if we ALL individually starting being the way of this one word – we would have a whole lot more joy on this planet and more joy means more peace and more solution-orientation…
We ALL have the potential to be the way of this ONE WORD and BE magnificent humanKIND.
So JOY sUPporters… please pop onto www.possiblefuturesfilmcontest.com register and vote for JOY…
with giggles and gratitude
The UP has been actively sharing joy since 2003, their main outreach has been to the children in hospitals & institutions, where trained UP volunteer Care Clowns commit to their local hospital/home every week and share joy there with the children, parents and staff. Currently in Southern Africa there are over 75 volunteer Care Clowns and a monthly JOYful Upliftment of approximately 3500 people. go to www.theup.org.za for more info
