The Human Experience

I watched The Human Experience tonight and I have to say it was a truly beautiful documentary.  If the footage of the children in Peru in particular doesn’t move you, chances are you aren’t alive inside.  Within the first 30 seconds of the documentary starting I could tell I was going to love it and I’ll go so far as to say it was life changing and powerful.  If you endure corporate politics all day after a while you may really start questioning humanity.  This film will help remind you what is incredibly important, the human experience.

From the homeless experience:

  • “You can’t say everyone is bad, we all have something happen to us.  If you don’t have good family and friends to support you, then you’re in a lot of **** because it is family and friends and you know this is life.”
  • And then there is this brilliant clip from the movie:[audio:http://www.jeremyperson.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/08/recording-20110806-000506.mp3|titles=recording-20110806-000506]
  • “Experience can be a generous teacher or a cruel teacher.  But whatever experience we have, whether it is good or bad, we can always remember and learn something from it.”
  • “We can talk about ideas forever.  But ideas are simply that, they are thoughts, abstractions.  Until these ideas are rooted in reality, in the reality of my own life, my own experience, they can’t be tested.  They can’t be proven true.”
