What is their why?

A hilarious, heart warming docu-drama about a group of elderly women who form a Spice Girls tribute band to earn a quick buck when one friend can’t pay the bills. 11:12 minutes.
As Garang struggles on his first day at high school in Australia, memories of being lost in South Sudan are triggered.
An elderly man gets a visit from his childhood best friend, who appears to him as a teenager. 10:36 mins.
I loved it. Of course, it made me cry. Not all children wear their bruises on the outside.
… I’m at a lose for words… Well done. Amazing Visuals. And most importantly, it makes me feel for all people.
Very moving video. People should not judge other people by their stains. I believe we all have stains of our own
I would tell these kids that they are beautiful and worthy. They are strong and resilient. I want to give them all a hug.
The video was very moving. All of us have scars. Some are visible and some you cannot see. Some of us don’t want others to see these scars but want to feel like we belong.
I would share my experiences being raised the same way….then I would dump love on them….
We all have stains and no one is an exception. We are just good at covering them up and hiding them from the others, this makes us feel more lonely and helpless. I would love to hug the kids and say hey, lets not pretending we don’t have the stains. We can own it and lover each other as who we are.
