We are so much more than what we seem

We are so much more than what we seem February 13, 2014

A shorter version of this clip has been making the rounds on social media: it’s an ad for a lingerie company in Asia with a beautiful and unexpected pro-life message.

But you really should see the two other films that are part of this campaign. They are stunners, and convey again and again the theme of inner beauty, stoicism, strength and integrity.  More than that, they also remind us of something we often forget: what people see on the outside is only part of the story.

Among other things, these eloquent vignettes are quiet parables about snap judgments. There’s more to us than meets the eye—and more to others than what we think.

As a preacher once put it: “Be kind. For everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle.”

Take a few minutes and see what he meant. I think you’ll be compelled to look at the world around you, and the people who inhabit it, differently.  I know I was.
