Flash Back Friday #42

My Kid started his senior year in high school this week. That is amazing to me (I cried like it was his first day of school). I went to the same high school as my son and can remember my senior year like it was yesterday. One of my son's favorite teachers is teaching a new class this year, World Religions and he can't stop talking about it. On the first day of school the teacher showed the class the video he created below. It's fantastic.

Sometimes you have that 1 teacher or take that 1 class that changes everything: what you believe, how you see the world, what you want to do, where you want to live. I think this might be that teacher and that class for my Kid.

My son pointed out while we were watching the video that every major religion has similarities including placing your hands palms together and the belief to treat others as you would want to be treated.

This is not really a Flash Back Friday video but because this video was created by a teacher at my old high school, I'm listing it as a flash back.

Enjoy and have a great weekend.
P.S. I would love to read your comments about the video. And you might recognize the music, the song is by Hans Zimmer and was in the movie Gladiator.

What bothers me most. Is that almost every religion DOES have those core beliefs; i.e. do unto others... but so many choose to ignore them for their own gain. Spirituality is beautiful. Using religion for our own purposes and gains - no so much.

Beautiful video none the less.

This is a fantastic video. I had tears in my eyes listening to the music. It would be a great class for all high school seniors. It should encourage tolerance for all faiths and religions. Brenda
