some things are just transcendent

The other day I was talking with my dad in one of those meandering ways that touch upon all kinds of subjects, and we ended up discussing how a society that produces disposable things is in danger of treating persons as disposable.

I’m afraid that we’re already in that place.

I see it too often from my little perch on a stool, safely behind a lectern so I don’t get too close.

The following video, one I may have posted before but is newly getting some attention since George Takei posted it, speaks to this disposable attitude. In fact, one of the speakers in the video shares the same concern I’ve brought up.

Watch it. If the sheer humanity of it doesn’t get to you, surely the music will.
