It is when a child’s words seem to make more sense,
than those on which the adult’s arguments are based.
It’s when nature reminds us that we aren’t really on top of this planet.
The force of the sea, or the power of the wind.
‘Fascinating’ is when science grows a living organ in a test tube…
because the whole body wouldn’t fit!
It’s when technology makes a paralyzed man walk and run like a robot.
‘Fascinating’ remains the human emotions lost on a Vulcan.
The unpredictable, unstoppable and irreplaceable moments of sadness.
When an eleven year old child in New York City huddles in a black plastic bag,
homeless, half-naked and desperate for someone to show compassion, in minus 15 degrees Celsius.
It’s when after an hour of people stepping over and around him, some shouting at him, some stopping,
shaking their heads in disgust…only to walk on.
It’s when the first person to engage with this poor child, gave him the coat off his back,
and the little cash he had in his pocket.
It’s when you find out that he too is homeless and desperate,
yet he was the only one to stop and love.
‘Fascinating‘ how many of us must be Vulcan?
‘Encouraging that some of us are still ‘Human’.
(This was inspired by a short clip of a social experiment in NYC by three brothers. Brought tears of sadness to ireland2day.
But reignited my quest to be ‘Human’. Here is the link if you are brave enough to question your own ‘Humanity’)
