Thanks for sharing this very inspiring video; a wonderful reminder to enter into the world of our brothers and sisters that we so often walk by on the street every day, yet because of distraction, forgeting them. This video promotes a way of thinking/feeling about others that is akin to Jesus' "Love your neighbor as yourself." Watching this is a good shot in the arm for us Orthodox Christians who are midway through Lent, striving to implement the directive to love our brother/sister, and not judge him/her, as we pray daily in this most central and important prayer of St. Ephrem the Syrian:

O Lord and Master of my life, take from me the spirit of sloth, despondency, lust for power and idle talk.

But grant unto me, Thy servant, a spirit of chastity (integrity), humility, patience and love.

Yea, O Lord and King, grant me to see mine own faults and not to judge my brother. For blessed art Thou unto the ages. Amen.
