109 Yr Old Holocaust Survivor: "Look for the Beauty in Life"

UPDATE: Alice passed on 2-23-14 (exactly one year after we featured this on MyPeace.TV) at the age of 110. May her warmth and wisdom continue to inspire us.

Original Post by Everyone Matters:

"You HAVE to watch this 1 minute video! - The most powerful wisdom you will ever hear - by 109 year old Holocaust survivor Alice Herz-Sommer.

Alice Herz-Sommer is 109, was in a concentration camp in Terezin, and is STILL LIVING, in London.

She was interviewed by Bernard Hiller in December 2011.

Everyone Matters was struck by the power of her words - and we wanted to share with you a minute of the interview, when she's asked about the secret to feeling good. (We added musical scoring by the amazing Dexter Britain)

"Optimism," she said, "and looking for the good. Life is beautiful. You have to be thankful that we are living..... Wherever you look is beauty."

And lastly: "I know about the bad things, but I look for the good things."

The essence of all beauty that surrounds you, All joy filling the cup of creation, Endless beating hearts sharing love and compassion toward each other, Comprising life and each serendipitous moment with chance and opportunity to excel, pass or fail, Breathe deep a continuous storm living free to change one self, and the world, As within the calm silent eddies beyond turbulence rest natures providence and grace of being, Patiently considering each struggle, triumph so you may prevail together as one...
