A short video for Day 7 of Dementia Awareness Month 2015 #DAM2015.
“IF WE COULD SEE INSIDE OTHERS’ HEARTS”:
WOW! A profound look at life, in 4 minutes. You have to watch this — and share it. We literally welled up with tears — very rarely does that happen.
The camera wanders and shows the inner lives of people around us as they do their daily tasks. Most of it is set in a hospital, where there is so much worry, sadness, some joy, bad news, good news, no news, anxiety, fear — as in real life, but perhaps magnified.
We’ve all BEEN there – experienced at least one of these people’s lives. Hence, the tears! It’s so TRUE.
This short video is at once quiet, profound, powerful, true, simple — and so supremely human. It was produced by the Cleveland Clinic, as an example of their regard for empathy.
It’s a profound reminder: we ALL have our story. Others have theirs. We NEVER know. And to treat others with the benefit of the doubt, with courtesy, with compassion, with respect.

The video was first presented by Dr. Toby Cosgrove, CEO of the Cleveland Clinic, with the staff during his 2012 State of the Clinic address a few weeks back, on Feb. 27, 2013, and since posted on the clinic’s website.
