Maybe you’re having a stressful day or week. Be it finals, end-of-the-year deadlines, graduation or the like – take the chance to watch at least one of these videos. I have watched all of these, and have shed tears for each one (warning). Be inspired by people who truly make a difference! I’d love to know which one is your favorite. They are broken down by how much time you have – 3, 5 or 10 minutes. Enjoy!
If you have at least 3 minutes:
‘Super-Sized’ Random Act Of Kindness
They pay for those behind them in the drive-thru line, and only ask that they pay it forward.
Alex’s Lemonade Stand
Alex was an inspiring young girl whose love for life carries on past her own.
If you have at least 5 minutes:
Take A Seat – Make a Friend
Soul Pancake really took inspiration to a whole new level. Strangers are asked to share a seat in a ball pit and ask life’s biggest questions.
CBS WKBT News Anchor’s On-Air Response to Viewer Calling Her Fat
I actually just posted this on my Facebook this week. If you have not seen it yet, I highly encourage that you do so. Remember that bullies do not define your self-worth – but the positive voices of all who love you do.
If you have at least 10 minutes:
Anti-Semitism on the Rise? ABC Primetime “What Would You Do?”
What Would You Do? Is one of my favorite TV shows. Actors and actresses portray scenes of oppression and see how others react. This is a real test of the bystander effect. You can watch other clips on Youtube, I chose this one since it shows oppression against my own religion.
Greatest Marriage Proposal Ever!!!
