“I think we all have empathy. We may not have enough courage to display it.” ~ Maya Angelou

“If your emotional abilities aren’t in hand, if you don’t have self-awareness, if you are not able to manage your distressing emotions, if you can’t have empathy and have effective relationships, then no matter how smart you are, you are not going to get very far.” ~ Daniel Goleman

    very disappointing collage, as many of the photos are of war and the glorification of it. it felt like a syrupy advertisement from fox news for war cheerleading… i've seen better 'emotional' photos from my 5mp cell phone camera on a walk through the park!

  2. Angela says:

    touching. I think the point was that there are stories behind the pictures. I don't think they glorified war.

  3. sabine says:

    Not a glorification of war at all – it's the emotion behind the experiences of the people behind the scenes. Not the politicians causing wars. And many other touching images – thank you.

    1:28 hope. This says it all.

  5. Mia says:

    It is not war that is glorified here. Humanity is glorified. It shows that, although people find themselves swept up in tragedy, war and all kinds of conflict, we are capable of loving kindness in these moments. Im moved in some way by all of these photos.

  6. George Diehl says:

    Looking at these photos I understood all human beings bleed red, all humanity shares an emotional and spiritual connection. Each individual has the right and responsibility to choose if ignorance, insolence, racism, bigotry and hatred is the reason for our behavior. I feel humanity has used stupidity as a justification to be, for lack of a better word, evil; for far too long. We can learn from the past and choose to do better with the present; for the sake of the future.
