Reasons to connect
Actual connections are sought by us human beings all of the time. Humans will go to extraordinary lengths to find those connections. It's part of who we are and what we are.
Today technology has given us all, no matter where we are in the world, more ways to connect - and remain connected - than ever before. With the proliferation of social media in almost all of our lives and with our willingness to seek each other out and be part of 'something', truly amazing things happen because when people are inspired, led and driven we can cooperate in ways unimagined in previous decades.
This is perhaps best demonstrated in this awesome video from TED.com. American composer and conductor, Eric Whitacre, tells his story of one little idea and how that little idea grew and became adopted by 2,052 willing participants from all over our globe to be part of his virtual choir.
Take 15 minutes of your time today to watch this inspiring, funny and moving video. I promise, it doesn't disappoint. Enjoy.
