To Sum Us Up
From Today’s Daily Prompt: Worldly Encounter
If I had to sum up all of the human race to a stranger of who we are, there are so many thoughts that cross my mind from the worst of horrors to the tenderest care.. the humour, the tears, the kindness, the ruthlessness. How does any book or movie sum that up..
I was thinking first of Dude, Where’s My Car (I know: how stupid, but the movie makes me laugh). This is from my silly, geeky side, that has no relevance here, but it was the first thing that came to mind.
Then I thought of the song Imagine as it says so much.
Then I thought of what probably depicts us so very well, with the exception of the fact that it is written of a different era. Les Miserable. I think that although it is not for everyone, it depicts human nature so very well… other than the fact that we don’t sing everything that we say.
