Words on Fire

I was reminded of Sara McLachlan’s unconventional music video “World On Fire” while reading The Power of Half.  Rather than shoot a conventional music video for “World On Fire”, McLachlan donated all but $15 of the $150,000 budget to various charitable causes around the world while using the video to explain how it benefited the communities that received the money.

“The more we take, the less we become

A fortune of one means less for some”

The purpose of life is…above all to matter, to count, to stand for something, to have it make some difference that we lived at all
