One Dancing Man's Inspiring Journey

It's hard to put into words why this short video, "Where The Hell Is Matt?," touches something so visceral, but one tends to feel hopeful when watching it. Yeah, it's only a man taking his silly dance across the world, but there is a sense of unity, an acknowledgement that even though we are culturally different we can find something to appreciate in each other. It's a brief moment that offers an explosion of joy instead of bombs, and it's true it's a moment that belies the reality, but suggests there is a possibility that one day maybe we can accept and celebrate our differences. I realize how much I sound like a Pollyanna, yet I wonder why it is easier to hate, to slander, to kill than it is to simply dance across the globe without an agenda.
