    I wish that what Michael experienced was contagious and that the whole country would contract it... if but for only a day.... the change that selflessness would have on this nation would be incredible... Humility is a wonderful, wonderful thing.... Thank you for showing this clip...

    When laughter bubbles up, we forget about whatever was keeping us from being able to see the humour around us. He was touched by God to feel the switch and it changed him ...he now gives from what he has. A lesson for each one of us.

  • Lynn

    I found the fact that he wants to give people the gift of laughter very inspiring. His ability to bring the boy to a point where he would remove his mask was also inspiring.

    When we shift the emphasis of our actions away from ourselves, we empower ourselves. We take away the pressure to perform and begin to connect to the experience in a more powerful and authentic way. We ennoble ourselves because the very experience is transformed from ordinary to sacred.
