Move Over, Justin Bieber. This Couple Wrote a Song for Their Wedding and Got Discovered. Next Up, a Record Deal.

Move Over, Justin Bieber. This Couple Wrote a Song for Their Wedding and Got Discovered. Next Up, a Record Deal. | Grade Nine Religion Semester 2 | Scoop.it
This unconventional couple thought regular ol' wedding vows were way too vanilla. So they mixed it up in the coolest way possible.
Nathan Boongaling's insight:

     In this video, it displays a couple named Michael Alvarado and Carissa Alvarado at their wedding giving each other their wedding vows through song. They promised each other that "No matter where you are, I'll be there" its like saying that, no matter where in their life they are, they will always be supportive of each other. They thought that their wedding vows were "way too vanilla so they wanted to mix it up in the coolest way possible". Now, they've been discovered and now they have a Record deal.

 

    I find this video amazing. It shows the sacrament of wedding and how important it should be to people. It shows how marriage should be shown with people who truly love each other, and I feel like the true meaning behind their song is that they will always be eternally in love, and nothing can change that. As a catholic we do celebrate the sacrament of marriage along with several other sacraments, and that we must cherish these times, not take them for granted. These two are amazing people, I've seen their covers before and they're truly talented. Its like God gave them the talent himself. If you're truly in love, they you will accept your significant other's mistakes, and help them out through tough times.

 

    I think that we can learn a lot from this video. We can learn that we shouldn't rush into things like true love. In this video it displays actual true love of a supporting and loving couple. I feel like we should all live like this because in today's society we are all under the influence of infatuation which can lead to unfortunate circumstances. This video can change our perspective on love, and how we can learn to cherish our time with people. We need to cherish our lives more, because all we do is use the internet to solve our problems.

They Say Before Death You See Your Life Flash Before Your Eyes — Here’s One Preview You’ll Never Forget

They Say Before Death You See Your Life Flash Before Your Eyes — Here’s One Preview You’ll Never Forget | Grade Nine Religion Semester 2 | Scoop.it
Life goes by so fast, doesn't it? Refuse to waste even a single moment of it.
Nathan Boongaling's insight:
 

     In this video, it displays a mans life flashing right before his eyes just before death. It displays his happy memories, from good to bad. In this video, it displays how fast someones life can pass, and its not something that you should waste. You should cherish every moment in your life, when you get married, when you have children, when you have your first girlfriend, everything. You should be able to live a happy life, if you do you will die happy. In the video it says "Live well, Die well" It is an inspirational quote to live by.

 

     I find this topic very inspirational for many reasons. In this little video, it makes me think of the four steps of good decision making, Seeing, Judging, Acting, Reflecting. In order to live a good life, you must be able to SEE the various effects your actions will cause, even though it is negative, you will be able to make the right decision to not do it. You need to JUDGE how your action will effect yourself, as well as the others around you even which can lead you to great success or not. You'll eventually ACT on what you're thinking, then you will see the pros and cons of your action, and finally you will REFLECT on your action, you will finally see the true outcome of what you have done, you will think about it, and realize that it might have  been the greatest decision of your life, or the biggest regret you will ever have.

 

     In the video, I think the man who's life flashed right before his eyes had an amazing life. He was able to raise his own kids, he had a beautiful wife, he got to experience the joy of having his own grandchildren, etc. This person's life gave me a new perspective on living our own lives. It looked like he lived his life to the fullest, accomplished a much as he could in his lifetime, It's a true inspiration to see how good of a life you can live, if you live by the right standards.
