Fun Fridays – Jan. 18, 2013

Please watch this wonderful and inspirational video (only 3 1/2 minutes long). While it isn’t “funny” it made me smile.

Below is a trailer for “Landfill Harmonic” an upcoming feature-length documentary about a remarkable orchestra from a remote village in Paraguay, where its young musicians play with instruments made from trash.

Unrelated to the above movie but on a similar topic, if you would like to support underprivileged children in the art of music visit this World Vision site. Here you can support music education around the world. (Thanks to Betsy St. Amant for the suggestion!)

    Thanks for posting this clip. We are born with beauty and comfort against our cheeks. These people create it with blisters and trash, and I think they appreciate it far more. It makes me wonder what I do with my time that’s valuable.

    Love this post, Steve. It will make me look twice at what I throw away. Reminds me how God even uses the “trash” from our lives to bring beauty. And I love the resourcefulness of those who have learned to bring beauty out of ashes (including recycling)–like these musical instruments. Will share this.
