Hospital Window - Inspirational Video - YouTube

Devin Deoraj's insight:

Re-Tell

This video is about two men who are hospitalized and cannot leave their beds, one man is blind and the other has to get treatment for an unspecified problem. The men in the hospital have gotten along very well regardless of their disabilities, one man is in the bed closest to the window and is the one who can see. Everyday the one who can see tells the blind one what is going on outside in the park below because he cant see. After some time together they  become good friends and eventually one had to go for his treatment so he can get out of the hospital. So the blind one wishes his friend the best of luck as he leaves, a few days later the nurse comes in to the room with only one tray and questions why there is only one. The nurse proceeds to tell him that the second man didn't make it through his operation, feeling sad the blind man asks for one request, to look out the window and tell him what is going on out there. She replies with "sir there is a brick wall there"

This story reminded my of the idea of inclusion in the way that even through one man wasn't capable of doing something the other could such as seeing. The man with vision tried his hardest to make the blind mans time at the hospital enjoyable, he could have never spoken to the blind man and tried to avoid conversation with him because he was "different" but instead he included the man and respected the dignity and values of him as a friend. I also believe that the demonstrated a christian perspective on being with others because it didn't require the other person to change to suit the man with vision. Also it benefited both parties by one man telling stories he had to make up because nothing was really happening outside the window and the other heard amazing stories about the people outside at the park. This video has shown a very similar viewing compared to the things we learned about a christian perspective on being with others and Inclusion

 

Reflect

I think that the man with the vision was an overall great person, he was there for the blind man when he needed it. This is an act of kindness that is very important to the blind man, without the person who could see the other man would have been very lonely and not want to be in the hospital like that. The man with vision may have lied about all the stories he told the blind man but he did it to help him and it did, it made him see a whole new world while not actually being able to see. Overall the man may have sinned but it was for the better cause, seeing a smile on another person because of your actions is its own reward worth more then anything else.

This video is truly heartwarming, and it was a great video for you to share with us, Devin. I really like this story because of how kind and thoughtful the man with vision is. He truly did care for the blind man and did his best to make him feel welcome in this world, despite his injury. I think that, on top of what you have stated, that this video also relates to the idea that every human body has dignity, no matter what happens. The blind man may have lost his eyesight, but that didn't stop the man with vision from being kind to him. He didn't care that his friend couldn't see what was going on, but instead he did his best to make the blind man still feel welcome in this world because he knew that it would be hard for him, so the man with vision treated the blind man with dignity. I agree that it directly links to inclusion for the same reason. The man with vision was truly Christ-like because it is clear that he is not telling the blind man these stories because he finds it funny, but rather because he wants the blind man to still understand the joy in living. I really enjoyed this video and it really makes me appreciate those around me and my friends. They are there to help me, just like how the man with vision helped the blind man. We can learn from the man with vision and remember to treat everyone equally, no matter what has happened to their bodies, for their bodies are temples for the holy spirit.

Devin this video was moving and gives me something I am able to take away and keep within my heart. That being the strength to do what this man did for the other who was blind. He demonstrated being a lover like Jesus in many ways, including the one that you have mentioned, though I saw him living out the prayer describing love. This prayer being, “Love is patient; love is kind; love is not envious or boastful or arrogant; Love never ends”(1 Corinthians 13.4,8). How he did so is the man could have become angry, aggravated or annoyed conjuring different scenarios day after day for this man. His view could have been that he was done describing what he could from the top of his head and thought about himself and his reasons for being in the hospital though did not. He chose to make this man’s life better and seems he would not have him dwell on his unfortunate disability. Through this they became friends until the end for him, leaving an impact on the blind man’s heart as he left on mine. This was an emotional scoop that I truly enjoyed alongside your comments and thoughts about it, we had many of the same views and I hope everyone that watches this video takes something away.

Devin! Nice scoop. I find this video really inspirational. I feel like it took a lot of strength to do what this man did, He helped a blind man do something what he wasn't able to do. He provided the man with imagery of a world, which the man couldn't see. He acted like a lover to this man, he cared for him, and provided him with something that couldn't be given without true friendship. Regarding what you said about the man at the window, being a great person, I strongly agree with you. He didn't leave the blind man in the dark, he helped him see the world by creating different scenes that he would see out the window. They had a creative intimate relationship, he did all this to make the man happy, and not miserable. He could have not done anything for the blind man, but he did all he could until his time came to make one person happy. This scoop was very inspirational, everyone can learn from it.

Re-Tell

This video is about a professor whose past students come back to him to talk about their current lives. After some conversation it turned to complaints about their lives, work and stress. The professor offered them some coffee and went to the kitchen to get it. he came back with a bunch of different cups of all prices, he then told them to take a cup and and some coffee. By the time everyone had a cup of

coffee in their hands all the inexpensive cups had been taken. Everyone there was looking around to see who got the more expensive cups. The professor then explained that the coffee was like our life and the cup was like our jobs, social ranking and jobs. His point was that the cups don't change the quality of the coffee but they still went for the most expensive cups because that's how they view life.

 

Relate

This video related to multiple things I learned in the semester such as the contrary virtues specifically Pride and Envy. Pride is when a person is boosted on a sense of one's personal status or accomplishments, which is why when they chose the cups they were always looking to see who had the best or most expensive one. Envy is when a person is jealous of an others accomplishments or life, such as people most likely wanted others cups because their own was not amounting to much in their eyes. In a way this also reminded me of the fifth commandment and how human life is sacred which is why everyone should be equal. No one should be judged by the things surrounding their life such as money or social status. All life is precious and the same.


Reflect

The reason i picked this article for more classmates to read is because today in our society all that matters with a person is their social status or their accomplishments not many people take time to enjoy their cup of coffee or in this case their life. Like the cup the coffee is in, many things that we think ''improve'' our life actually have no effect or change on the quality of our life. Every person has a different ''cup'' and it sometimes is only used to hide our life  or ''our real self'' So in conclusion I think that this video has a very large impact on how we should view our lives compared to how these people viewed it in the story.

What I really like about this video is how it relates so well to almost everyone. It doesn't just relate to adults who are stressed with their lives, it relates to many people who value materialistic things. People these days care so much about things that are "cool" and things that make ourselves "cool". People no longer focus on the things that truly make us happy. Materialistic things have become the center of people's lives now-a-days and it has become so hard to find true happiness. Almost everyone always tries to climb to the top and it's not necessarily a bad thing but it can result in acts of selfishness. It also causes people to become jealous and envious which means that people become less aware of how lucky they already are. I completely agree with your opinion. I think that if people in our generation continue to be materialistic, then generations in the future may become worse. Despite this danger I think it's still possible for people to change their ways and to turn their perspectives around.
Danica Santos's comment, June 3, 2014 11:39 PM
Wow! This video shows a great analogy between a cup of coffee and life. I like how unique this comparison is and how it corresponds to life exactly, since there are people in today’s society who occupy their time stressing over a problem that has a simple solution. An abundance of people can learn so much from this video. We shouldn’t be driven to buy and possess items to make us happy and gain acknowledgement. By doing so, we will not ever be truly happy since we would be ignoring and forgetting the little things and moments which lead us to the true meaning of being happy. There may be a time in our lives when we forget all concepts that make life enjoyable because we can all become self-absorbed, envious and be blinded by material possessions. I agree with you when you mentioned the video relates to the deadly sins of pride and envy because the ‘cup’ being jobs, money and position in society can make us envious of one another and can cause oneself to have too much pride. I enjoyed the part in the video when it mentions that although wanting the best for oneself is normal, if we overdue this aspect it can become the source of the problem that can lead into stress.
Ryan Milanes's comment, June 6, 2014 10:43 PM
Devin, the best part I liked about this scoop was the analogy between the coffee and the cup. Most people treat their life like the cup because they just focus on the really expensive and nice things in life while other people are enjoying the coffee which is the "best" and "small" things in life. Many people are driven to the cup instead of enjoying your morning cup of coffee. This made think of the two deadly sins pride and envy. Having money and having the new best thing making us envious to everyone and people having pride of the nice things they have. People should should enjoy and be happy for what they have in life because it tells us how lucky we are to have these things you have. In conclusion the video was very interesting.

Re-Tell

In this heart warming story a young child steals medicine to help his mother who is very ill. He gets caught by the women he stole from and is about to get into a big amount of trouble until a young man comes to his rescue and asks him who the medicine is for and why that person needs it. He gives him some food and pays for the medicine that was no longer stolen, and the little boy runs off to deliver the drugs. Thirty years past and the now older man is still giving away free things to the people around him that need it, he soon gets injured doing work to provided for his family. When he is at the hospital he he is in urgent care and his daughter is unaware of what to do. She goes to see the doctor and tell her about what is happening, when she figures out the cost for the treatment she realizes that she cannot afford the massive cost. She eventually fell asleep on his bed side to wake up to a note with the bill attached, she reads it and it says all of the cost have been paid for by the doctor which had all of the time been that little boy he saved from trouble.

 

Relate

I have related this lesson to when we learned about "the loving thing to do" and the four stages of making the right decision on what to do in these situations. SEEING; when the young man saw the boy running away with the stolen medicine he realized he could either help the little boy or just go along his own way. After he had to JUDGE; He thought about what would happen if he helped the little boy and if it could negatively impact his life at all and he thought it wouldn't even though in the end he ended up being saved by the same little boy thirty years later. Then he ACTED; by helping the little boy and asking who wanted the medicine and why they wanted it, after hearing the reasons he paid for the boy and even helped more by giving him some extra food. Lastly he REFLECTED;  he thought maybe through this one small act of kindness that boy could help his mom get better and maybe the boy would even grow up and have the chance to go somewhere in life, which he did growing up into the doctor that would save the mans life.

 

Reflect

I think this video is important because it shows that one small act of kindness can go a long way in life. In my eyes it is very important to do things like this because it can help save someone from dark thoughts about their own life, even smiling at someone can change their day completely. In the media today there is so much negativity towards helping people such as the poor. One day i heard a person say " don't give them money they will just use it for drugs, how do you think they got there in the first place?" Things like that I hate hearing because we don't know anyone's full story really so how can we judge something we cant understand? This video really moved me into trying to live each day to help others more then myself thanks to the little acts of kindness i can give to anyone around me.

I enjoyed this video a lot devin! This was an awesome scoop. In the video I liked how despite the fact that the man wasn't the richest of people he still gave food to people in need on a daily basis. To add to that, the man also showed the beatitude "blessed are those persecuted on rightousnesses sake" He protrayed the beatitude by standing up for the little boy and paying for the little boys debt in front of his neighbours and the busy market place. The man was constantly giving and treating others the way he wanted to be treated and that payed off. The end of the video was definatley my favourite part because in the end, the little boy turned out to be the doctor and he payed for the the old mans medical bills. In conclusion, this is an incredible video on the gift of giving and I hope to be as giving as the old man was when i grow up.
