This Is Water

There are things that we post on that we know will speak to some people (but not all…) and then there are pieces like this, that we wish would be required watching for every adult.   (Note: this video is not really about water.) This is a beautiful piece of art with an awesome message!

From the creators of the video:  In 2005, author David Foster Wallace was asked to give the commencement address to the 2005 graduating class of Kenyon College. However, the resulting speech didn’t become widely known until 3 years later, after his tragic death. It is, without a doubt, some of the best life advice we’ve ever come across, and perhaps the most simple and elegant explanation of the real value of education.  We made this video, built around an abridged version of the original audio recording, with the hopes that the core message of the speech could reach a wider audience who might not have otherwise been interested.
