Consider Our Good Fortune

Doug once told me that health (mental and otherwise) was determined by the gap between what a person said and what a person did. The  shorter the distance, the healthier the person. His work in the world was to help young people close the gap, to help them to clarity and a purity of motivation.

Human beings do incredible things when their instincts arise, when they act without the sludge of a rhetorical gap.

Regardless of your point of view on the ongoing health care debate, this brief but powerful video from filmmaker (and friend) Mark Lundsten asks us, for just a moment, to step into the gap and consider what we do versus what we say we do in moments of pure motivation.
