“Pangea Day uses the power of film to bring the world a little closer together.”
Pangea is the hypothetical landmass that existed when all continents were believed to be one. This is where everything, all of us originated.
Pangea Day is the day where people in Barcelona, Spain; Madurai, India; Maputo, Mozambique; Medellin, Colombia; and little old me in Boynton Beach, Florida, USA can be part of a singular global event. I AM one not only with my thoughts, my family, BUT with the whole world!
It is the experience of what it is to BE human.
In one segment of the event Jonathan Harris presented his website wefeelfine.org where he explores human emotions on a global scale. I realized that I am experiencing many of the same emotions. He shows that we are one!
“Stories are the glue that holds the world together.”
It’s funny to see what one posts on a blog can actually inspire something in someone else. I guess this is why I write this blog – to actually make a difference out there. Maybe something I say can make a difference out there.
Another presenter, Ishmael Beah was a child soldier when he lost his family at war in his African country. He asked us to
“See each other’s common humanity and not the differences that tear us apart.”
He expressed that Hope is a form of strength! So my hope for the world is that war, anger, hatred, indifference will all one day disappear and we can live united as one!
