FOOD FOR THOUGHTS

I would like to offer some food for thoughts in this segment in the form of a video that many have had the opportunity to view previously, but I am sure everyone will be glad to be reminded of those reflections once again. Appreciate and enjoy!

The following is the transcription to this video:

The Lie We Live

by Spencer Cathcart

At this moment you could be anywhere, doing anything. Instead you sit alone before a screen. So what’s stopping us from doing what we want? Being where we want to be?

Each day we wake up in the same room and follow the same path, to live the same day as yesterday. Yet at one time each day was a new adventure. Along the way something changed. Before our days were timeless, now our days are scheduled.

A noter que ce serait la première fois que notre pays aurait le privilège de participer à un concours égalant le Prix Nobel en prestige.
