The song "All We Do" seemingly floats through this short film that asks and answers the question: what does it mean to be human? Providing hope and inspiration, the answers include a recognition that being human is difficult; it means being aware of and accepting of ourselves and others, recognizing our potential, not giving up when we fail, knowing that we are not alone. To be human means all of this and much more. The words of the song, “All we do is hide away” contrast markedly with the words and images of the people interviewed, who meet us openly and honestly, showing us the very best of what it means to be human.

    Thank you . Being Human is loving another being irrespective of race , religion or colour . This being Human starts with one self as Gandhi very aptly said " Be the change you wish to see in the world "

    I love Annette's comment. Yeah, we have to be here for everyone no matter what our point of view might be, or whether we like them or not. In one way or another we have to be here for each other. Yes, we ALL of us matter. Be YOU today.

    What many many ppl do not realize is there is only one true race, the human race, and we are all part...we are our brothers keeper and mankind should be our business!

    For me, this video makes me stop and realize all people are humans......even the ones we profess to not like or that bother us in some stupid way. As cliche as it sounds, we all live on this one planet and we all gotta get along, but beyond merely 'getting along' we need to be there for each other in any way. In a small way. In big ways. Even just acknowledging a stranger with a smile or a kind word does something positive to both of us.
