I love this quote from a documentary I’m proud of have been a part of, American Blogger.
sometimes there are just words you have to record, and you pick up whatever writing device is near to put it down.
behind every blog is a blogger.
I watched my friend Chris get slammed with criticism for this film. I watched people I respect tweet horribly offensive words about people I love. It’s so easy to judge. to point fingers.
and when I take a step back, I know I do it too.
but this quote, these simple words strung together reminds me that behind every blog is a blogger.
the words you read, the pictures you gaze at, the influence that is spread across this crazy internet world – it’s real. the people behind the art are real live people.
and that reminds me, when I want to criticize, or on the opposite end – envy, these are people just like you and me. real people with real emotions, real flaws, real families, and real hearts.
lets not hate, but love. lets pray that the sweet Lord allows us to see people as He sees them, as His beloved children.
does this give you a new perspective?
