The Video That Won First Place At Cannes

I love browsing through Youtube's collection of witty ads that chronicle funny, touching and moving life moments. There are occasions when I feel the "void"; when I'm too consumed by mundane routines of my life. So I take a moment to breathe and look for a "convenient" inspiration to remind me that life is still beautiful. 

And yeah, Youtube can magically take you to an emotional roller-coaster ride. Usually in just a few minutes, you may experience sudden burst of laughter or a mild pinch in your heart that leaves you teary-eyed. And somehow, by the end of each viewing session, you are left with a sense of purpose to make your life more "Youtube-worthy." (winks!)

I want to share with you this short clip that features a child's innocent but poignant gesture of kindness. In few unexpected moments, be it trivial or grand, we are moved by acts of selflessness that validate the greatness of a human soul. 

It's so easy to be cynical and feel defeated in the most trying times of our lives. Life can be short, but moments like this make it worthwhile.
