this video is not here to lift ourselves up, to show sacrifice, or to make the viewer feel any sort of pity. it is to remind you that sometimes we forget that the people behind the music are just PEOPLE. once you idolize (or on the flip side, dismiss) him or her, you’ve completely stripped away their humanity. never forget that. we are all the same blood, flesh, tears. we are all human. thank you guys so much for watching.
“We are very good at preparing to live, but not very good at living. We know how to sacrifice ten years for a diploma, and we are willing to work very hard to get a job, a car, a house, and so on. But we have difficulty remembering that we are alive in the present moment, the only moment there is for us to be alive.”—Thich Nhat Hanh (via h-o-r-n-g-r-y)
