#Grateful: Landfill Harmonic – Video

Screen Shot 2012-12-13 at 2.54.59 PM

This is a teaser for the documentary film Landfill Harmonic.  The families in the documentary live on a landfill in Paraguay.  They recycle and sell the trash to subsist.  Now, as sad as this is, there is a deep meaningful message here.

Their lives lack beauty, so they create beauty and music out of trash, by creating instruments for their children.  And boy can the children play.  At one point they share that a violin is worth as much as a house!

I watched this with my girls and my son, because all of our kids play instruments, and we shared a very deep moment.  Realizing that we are constantly surrounded by beauty and constantly complaining and not appreciating our circumstances.  Afterwards, when I heard music fill our home as I made dinner, I truly appreciated it, understanding the privilege it is to be so blessed.

Thanks to Jeannie (hat tip!) for the amazing share…
