THIS IS WATER | David Foster Wallace’s famous Kenyon Commencement Speech (abridged) set to visuals and feels like a short film.
If you watch just one life changing video today, make sure it’s this one.
“You get to consciously decide what has meaning and what doesn’t.”
My life coach sent me this video this morning, then I saw that it was also in my Tumblr dashboard. Definitely worth watching and considering.
La Cosecha / The Harvest (2011)
“Every year there are more than 400,000 American children who are torn away from their friends, schools and homes to pick the food we all eat. Zulema, Perla and Victor labor as migrant farm workers, sacrificing their own childhoods to help their families survive. The Harvest / La Cosecha profiles these three as they journey from the scorching heat of Texas’ onion fields to the winter snows of the Michigan apple orchards and back south to the humidity of Florida’s tomato fields to follow the harvest and provides an intimate glimpse into the lives of these children who struggle to dream while working 12 – 14 hours a day, 7 days a week to feed America.”
just goes to show you that not consuming animals does not mean you are supporting a system that is cruelty free
LOL other than the fact that humans can CHOOSE this lifestyle and aren’t SLAUGHTERED in the process unlike an animal, idiots.
Nobody in my family chose this, you privileged little girl.
One average, one farm worker dies per day because of the heat. Many are beaten because they dare to stop to drink water. Do you know how many construction workers die every day? How many men that work in food processing? I bet you didn’t hear about the man that was cooked alive in a pressure cooker. We are slaughtered, just not with a knife. But you wouldn’t know about that, would you? They probably don’t teach you that in your classrooms.
Do not insult my family for being forced to work in these conditions because we did what we had to do to feed our families.
BOOM GOES THE FUCKING DYNAMITE ^^^
I don’t know how many people have sent me this video saying it reminds them of us. That makes me the happiest, and I’m keeping it here so you are sure to see it someday.

Tahno’s voice. It’s sex. So I made a song dedicated to it.
