There’s this great viral video going around the Internet of this guy, Jeremiah McDonald, having a conversation with his 12-year-old self, 20 years later. As a kid, Jeremiah made funny videos of himself talking to his future self all the time, so as an adult, Jeremiah decided to weave some of the footage together, creating this wonderful, heartwarming and poignant video. Watch it in the player above to see it for yourself.
It certainly makes me wonder: What would we say to our 12-year-old selves? I would have said, “Start reading the newspaper — what happens in the world matters. Keep playing piano, because the fact that you don’t is one of your biggest regrets. ”
So, dear ONE members, this week, I would love for you to watch this video and ask yourselves that question. Maybe it’s activist-related, maybe it’s not. Maybe it’s great advice. Maybe it’s reassuring words. It’s up to you.
Share them with other ONE Blog readers in the comments below. I think we’ll have a fun and amusing little conversation.
