A Message From the Future. ~ Catherine Beekmans

Via Catherine Beekmanson Jul 18, 2013

This video takes us on a journey from utter defeat to enormous swells of hope.

Via UpWorthy:

“I first watched this when I was 14, and I haven’t been able to forget about it since. Just wait until you get to 0:48, and then remember to watch this every time they tell us young people are apathetic, selfish, or doomed.”

Watching this fills me with hope and pride for humanity. We’ve made some mistakes, but we’re learning, teaching, loving, growing and becoming more mindful of what’s important.
