How We See The World
And people ripped it apart.
A video coming from an author, whose amazing novel is about to become a movie, was not received well. People commented in throngs to dispute his facts, rattle cages, and generally tell him the world was not a good but instead a horrible place. They did this because the world they know isn't a good place.
So his brother responded a few days later, with another video (this is how the Vlogbrothers work, they converse back and forth with each other Tuesdays and Fridays)
So I guess it all depends on what you see our world as. Is it a place of misery or a place of opportunity? And while I know there are people suffering all over the world, and that horrible things happen every single day—I choose to think this is a beautiful world. As Hank says, to think otherwise will only hold us back.
P.S. Internet is down at my house, has been a few days. Sorry for the lack of posting. I can say that since Friday I have sewn a hood for Italics, broke an inch of pine board with a spinning hook kick, hung out with amazing and supportive friends, had four pigs slaughtered, and had a several-hour-long conversation with one of my favorite people in the world while talking bows and archery. More soon.
