The day was July 24, 2010. “Life in a Day” was compiled from over 80,000 YouTube submissions (4500 hours) of authentic short videos by contributors from 192 countries and edited down to approximately 90 minutes. It was an experiment to create a documentary film about a single day on Earth; a tiny view of our daily experiences as a global society. “Everything has its place as you spend 90 minutes gaining greater insight into the lives of people who may be more like us than we ever suspected, despite the fact that we’re separated by incredible distances.”
My son recommended that we see the movie after he watched it at his high school. It is a very inspirational film and I highly recommend others check it out as well. You can view for free on YouTube. http://www.youtube.com/user/lifeinaday
Many parts are funny, some are mundane, from sad and poignant to profound. It is broken down into sections such as “what is in your pocket,” “what do you love,” and “what do you fear.” I don’t specifically remember what I was doing on July 24, 2010. But after watching this film, it reminded me of what I have and thankful for it. Pain and hope are universal. Life is what you make of it.
Merry Christmas! Joyeux Noël! Peace on Earth.
