"I think we all need a pep talk..."

A few weeks ago, at a faculty meeting, they closed our gathering with this inspirational video.  I immediately felt a sense of purpose and hope.  That might sound a little idealistic, but I don't care.  Watch the video below and see what I mean...

Hey.  How ya feeling?  Well, I hope you're feeling awesome.  Isn't this what life is all about?  Isn't this something we can all aspire to?  Regardless of religious or political beliefs, the message of this video can bind us together to reach for one goal: To make the world more awesome.

I showed this video to all of my classes the day after that faculty meeting.  In one class, a student said, "That is the best youtube video I've ever seen, and I've seen a lot of youtube videos."  In another class, I flipped the lights on to find one student wiping tears from her eyes.  As I passed out some papers and walked by her desk, I asked her if she was okay.  She replied, "I just am so happy that a little kid understands what it's all about, especially when there are so many adults that don't even get it."  It blessed my heart when they continued talking about it days afterward.

We are a team.

"This is your time.  This is my time.  This is our time.  Let's get out there."
