There is no explanation for this post other than I was deeply moved to make it. A friend shared a Facebook post with me containing this video and it moved me to tears in the light of recent events.
Will the world ever change? No, I seriously doubt it given the continuous presence of conflict throughout our history. But it’s romantic to think what the world would be like if every man, woman and child embodied the sentiments in this speech. Who knows what humanity could achieve?
With thanks to Christos Kastanos who produced this coloured version on his YouTube channel. Nothing wrong with the original black & white but I love the impact of Charlie Chaplin’s steel blue eyes in this version.
