Butterfly child 

Here is a video that will move you beyond words.

And when I saw this video ofcourse I wanted to share it, but it also inspired me to write this blog. This video as you will see after watching touches your heart, and speaks volumes about JonathanPitre's spirit. He is a power house. He is generous and kind, compassionate and committed and most importantly full of life. More then many of us who have perfect health. 

I could not help but think how awesome would it be if the world fought for his condition. What could we accomplish if we used all our time, energy and resources to make this world a better place for him? Instead of spending our resources on wars, and proving one religion is better then the other, or fighting for more money, or land or oil, if we as a world chose to spend all our resources on finding cures for rare and not so rare diseases, what could we create?

If we gave away all the politics, and I mean the politics in science then I am positive we would find cure for Jonathan and other kids who are suffering from rare and painful diseases. 


Sometimes I wonder if there is a reason we focus on the wrong things? Things that don't matter! Wars, hate, pride, ego all the things that make us the worse versions of ourselves. Could we not be like Jonathan or be inspired by him? Videos like this and children like Jonathan can make us better human beings.

Perhaps we start by sharing his video and touching hearts. Perhaps we start by talking about him and his greatness over a dress on pinterest. Perhaps we start by dreaming of a world we want to live in and how we could create it. Now that is my dream...
