Video link: Happy people dancing on planet Earth
Explanation: What are these humans doing? Dancing. Many humans on Earth exhibit periods of happiness, and one method of displaying happiness is dancing. Happiness and dancing transcend political boundaries and occur in practically every human society. Above, Matt Harding traveled through many nations on Earth, planned on dancing, and filmed the result. The above video, the latest in a series of similar videos, is perhaps a dramatic example that humans from all over planet Earth feel a common bond as part of a single species. Happiness is frequently contagious — few people are able to watch the above videowithout smiling.
I have to admit, this video brought tears to my eyes. I could put it down to simple hormones, but that belittles my emotional response at seeing all these people coming together like that and being HAPPY. I’m still a little choked up. Maybe there’s hope for humanity yet.
I want to believe.
