The Internet is Amazing

Cathy ZielskeCZ Life29 Comments

Last Friday, a Facebook friend posted a link to a Ted talk by Sarah Kay. I've never heard of her, but I always give any Ted Talk link the benefit of the doubt, because let's be honest here, Ted Talks make quantum physics fascinating to the average person.

I was moved to tears by this Ted Talk. The poem she starts out with, called simply "B", blew my mind. Talk about the beauty and the power of words.

God, I love it when people share their gifts with the world. For all the people who spew their hatred and ignorance, there are so many more people who choose to share their love and hope. The Internet can be an amazing curator of such wonder.


You can buy her poem in a hardcover book on Amazon.

    I love TED talks. There are so many cool things that can be said in those 18 minute spurts. Love this one. I can’t remember who recommended it so forgive me if it was you!

    I’ve been wondering what TED talks are….my friend has been posting them for a while and attended the TED Talk conference in Edinburgh this past summer. This is good stuff! thanks for sharing.

    OMG!! This was GREAT! My favorite line from Sarah Key was “Momma is a worrier Papa is a warrior”. What a line I could relate to… I will be purchasing her book. Thank you for this post.

    Thanks for sharing this post. I showed it in my grade 7 language class,and they were mesmerized. We are inspired and are writing about what we see in the dark thanks to one of Sarah’s lists.
