Human Rights

I decided to start a WordPress blog at the suggestion of a friend of mine who swears by his.

What strikes my fancy today is the human rights videos from Youth for Human Rights. I’ve just been at YouTube watching some of them.

Here’s one of my favorites:
We are All Born Free and Equal.

This is what I like most about this video apart from the fact that it is beautiful and very moving.

It was created by a 21-year-old genius of a director named Taron Lexton. He actually directed all of these videos, which were produced by the Church of Scientology International.

Taron’s first film attempt was a music video called UNITED which has gone on to win numerous awards. UNITED is a hip-hop music video that tells of bullying and how one kid overcomes it without himself succumbing to the same mentality.

It’s not always the easiest thing to do.

But I think it’s interesting that even though people tend to be cynical, our favorite movies are about people who held to their own personal integrity despite any invitations to do otherwise.
