The Most Inspirational Commercial...is From A Beer Company - YouTube

Hannah Ravela's insight:

     This video is about guys playing basketball. They are playing the sport happily, with energy and determination despite being on the wheelchair. They are playing it like there's no tomorrow. They fall but they get back up again and continue playing. But in the end when their game was over you would realize one thing. All the guys on the wheelchair except for one got up and walk. The guys doesn't have problem walking after all. 

 

     Despite this video being a commercial for a beer company. It still shows some characteristics on being with others. These are respecting the dignity, values and need of all those involved, and not require other person to change to be accepted. These characteristics was shown when the guys play with their friend who is on the wheelchair without thinking that he's different. Instead they all get on a wheelchair and play with him fairly. This video also shows inclusion, when the guys play with their friend who is different without discrimination. They accepted him for who he is.  

 

     This video is really important to see because it shows how to treat others with respect despite being different. Today, we still see racism, bullying, exclusion etc. happening all over the world. As Catholics  we don't like seeing those kind of things happening, it breaks our heart. That's why we should lead our community and show them that we shouldn't be racist, bully, etc. Instead we should be friendly, accepting everyone, and respectful to everyone. I know that we are still young and our voice are not heard yet. But we can do little  things like accepting new kids and help them to feel comfortable. Accept and respect them for who they are, and support them to be better. I wish this video would make you think  that our so called "doing little things for others" could make others happy. So, start accepting everyone in our community with respect.

I enjoyed this video because it showed the involvement friends have for one another, and the understanding/acceptance a true friend can give and show to a person. This video is inspiring and motivates oneself to get into the habit of a Christian perspective on being with others. I liked how you mentioned how everyone in the video respected the dignity, values and needs of all those involved and that a Christian relationship does not require the other person to change to be accepted which then led into inclusion. This is important to do because in the eyes of society many would have thought that anyone who was ‘different’ would be treated differently. However, your video showed that we should not judge one another and discriminate because that would not be the loving thing to do. In addition, it does not matter what you can or cannot do because we are all precious to God and to the ones who care about us. I noticed in this video that the presence of recreational intimacy stands out and that each and every one of these guys prioritized, focused and devoted their time to one another causing them to become closer physically and emotionally.

This is a truly enjoyable, short but well thought out video. This video shows the fact that some people will be in your life even in the worst of times to share the good and bad times with you and overcome them. I especially liked the fact that they probably overcame this indecent of him having to use a wheelchair for the rest of his life, together. This truly inspires and shows me that some good people are still out there and even when things are looking down they are always right there with you. I completely agree with your overview of the video, people understand and respect the value of others. Even though one person is unfortinetly in a wheel chair his friends still play with him equal to his abilities which shows that they care about him and don't want him to feel like he has no dignity because he couldn't participate in regular sports like his friends. It helped show that some people understand what people are going through and that they can still be frineds through the darkest of times.

This is truly inspirational. It shows how your friends can have effect on your life. A friend who is there to support you no matter how rough the time it is, you know they're the type of friends you want to keep. Even though the guy is in a wheelchair his friends still play sports with him, at the ability he can play at. This shows true compassion for one person, they don't want their friend to be treated as different, they wanted him to feel as normal as possible. This shows me that true friendships can support you through the toughest time in your life, and will not shame you for it.

A Father's Love for His Daughter- Very Sad Story - YouTube

Don't we all wish we had a father like that.
Hannah Ravela's insight:

     This video "A Father's Love for His Daughter " is about a father who sacrifice himself to save his only daughter. In this short film the father was deaf. Since he was deaf his daughter was teased and bullied at school. The daughter would always get in to fights because she doesn't want get teased by others because of her deaf dad. Because she was teased so much she ended up disliking having his dad. She said in the beginning " I want a better Dad". One day it was the daughter's birthday, her dad prepared a cake for her and an apologize speech of being born deaf. But the same day, the daughter decided to commit suicide by cutting her wrist. Then her father rushed to the hospital to get her daughter treatment. Because there was so much blood loss, the daughter needed blood, so her dad volunteer to give his blood for his daughter to save her from death.

 

      I thought that this short film is an example of Christ-like love desires what best for the others. The father decided to sacrifice himself by giving his blood to her daughter because he thought that this choice is the best for his beloved daughter, to live. The father's action is also related to the beatitude "Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness". This action is when he help her daughter to live. In the video it also shows that the father wants his daughter to be a better person when he was scolding her because she came home late and when they were eating he wants his daughter to eat lots of food to grow taller. This is a christian perspective on being with others, challenging each other to be a better person. This story also shows the characteristic of christian perspective, putting your family or friends first. This characteristics was shown when the father always focused his time to his daughter.

 

    It is important for my classmates to watch this video because it shows  Christian perspectives on being others, such as challenge each individual  to become better than they are and putting family or friends first. To be honest this  video helps me to have more respect than ever to my parents. After watching this realize that our parents loves us so much that they will do anything for us to become a better person. This video also teaches us that we should be proud of our parents rather than being ashamed of them even though they are deaf, sick etc. because without them you wouldn't be here. All parents are the same they love their children to death and they also want their children to be a better person. I hope this video would also make you realize how much your parents love you.

What I really like about this video is how the father loves his daughter so much, even though it is obvious that she doesn't accept him. He shows Charity, the highest form of love. The father knew that his acts of love and kindness toward his daughter wasn't accepted, yet he still chose to look out for her because he loved her so much and wanted the best for her. This video shows us how the love from our family can be one of the strongest types of love that pretty much everyone has a hold of and sometimes we just don't realize it. The girl in this video cared more about the opinions of other people rather than the love from his father. Sometimes we may also do the same by choosing to put other things over our family or by not being thankful for the families that we have. Love can also be said in different ways. "Study hard," and "Eat more so you can get taller," are other ways of saying, "I love you." This is because it shows the Christ-like love of desiring the best for others. This video truly teaches us about a parent's love for his/her daughter and why we should be thankful for them.
Leanna Shoniker's comment, June 1, 2014 10:55 AM
This is a very inspirational video. I like how how mentioned the Christian relationship characteristic "Challenge others to become better than they are". The girl's father in the video tells her to eat properly and to study hard, he is challenging her to do these things so that she will become a better person. Something else I noticed in this video was the Christian relationship characteristic "Benefit both parties/everyone involved". A part of this characteristic means making sacrifices, the father made the sacrifice of taking his own life in order for his daughter to survive. This video really reminded me of how strong a love from a parent is toward their child. It taught me that parents love their children so much that they are willing to do almost anything for them, and that is a true quality of love and a good relationship.

samantha orpiada's comment, June 6, 2014 5:37 AM
This video is incredibly moving.I like how much strength and fortitude to father presents to make that decision this video relates a lot of the four steps of decision-making. Moreover it also provides how developed his conscious was since he ended up doing the right thing even if he meant sacrificing his own son. I also liked how in the end it showed a quote from the Bible form John 3:16. I felt like it was a really good way to conclude the video. In conclusion, this video was amazing to watch and i admire the father and his strength.

There are Still Good People in the World - YouTube

MUST SEE: http://fblink.us/fiKzp Share the inspirational video to spread the kindness! Feel free to make a better world by HELPING! Good people are everywere...
Hannah Ravela's insight:

     This video is an inspirational video to make the world a better place to live in by helping others. Videos of act of kindness all over the  internet are put up together to create this inspiring video. This video started off with a guy on a motorcycle helping an old man lying on the ground. At first, he was just waiting for the stop light to change. But as he was waiting, he  saw the old man couldn't get up by himself.  While this happening he didn't hesitate to pull over and help. Then the video continues with tons of video showing strangers kindly helping people in their surrounding. Lastly, this video finish it off with a man helping a woman to get out of the side of the road as the woman's car was stuck due to the heavy snow. 

 

     I believe that this video is an example of Christ-like love is not just an emotion, it is also a decision and Christ-like love is generous and does not calculate the cost of giving. Because this video shows people helping each other without expecting something in return. Also even though they know that their help might not get notice by others they still help others out of love.  As we discussed this in religion class we said that these specific "Christ-like love's" means that true love is requires to make decisions like to give and to serve others even when the service is unnoticed and unappreciated, and we should not do a deed expecting something in return.  This video is also related to one of the commandments, love thy neighbour. As we help others we are showing our love  for others.

 

     I think that it is important for my fellow classmates to watch this because it is a really inspiring video. Instead of watching nonsense videos on the internet and be influenced by it, it's better to watch this kind of video and be inspired by this. As young Catholics we still have lots of time  we could use to improve ourselves to be a better person and to be  a better catholic. This video shows us how to show Christ-like love toward others. As a young person we should start developing ourselves by loving people around us and helping them because it is the right thing to do. Be like the people in the video, let's not hesitate and help.
