I saw this post making rounds on Facebook. It is an interesting read so I tried to track the source but failed. I decided to share the post without credits. I did not write it, I am not changing it in any way either. I am sharing it with the intent of motivation to pass through the Covid-19 era…


A movie theater announced that an 8-minute movie won the title of Best Short Film in the World …

So, it was decided to display this movie in the cinema for free, so that the largest crowd could gather to watch it …

The movie began with a snapshot of a room ceiling that was devoid of any decoration and of any details; Just a white ceiling …

3 minutes passed without the camera moving and it did not move to any other scene, or any other part of the ceiling in the same room …

Another 3 minutes passed without the camera moving and without changing the scene …

After 6 boring minutes, the viewers started grumbling; Some of them were about to leave the theater hall; And some of them objected to the officials of the house because they wasted their time watching a ceiling …

Suddenly, before the majority started to leave, the camera lens slowly moved on to a wall without any details as well until it reached down towards the floor. There a child appeared on a bed, who seemed to be totally handicapped due to a spinal cord injury …

The camera slowly moved to the side of the bed of the handicapped child showing a wheelchair without a back …

Then the camera moved to the boredom location of the ceiling again; To show a sentence: *”We showed you only 8 minutes of this child’s daily activity, only 8 minutes from the scene that this handicapped child watches at all hours of his life, and you complained and weren’t patient for only six minutes, you couldn’t bear to watch it ..

So appreciate the value of every second of your life that you spend in health and thank the Lord for every blessing bestowed on you because you will not feel its existence unless you lose it …

We suffer during quarantine which, God willing, is for a limited time. What we do not know is that there are millions who live their entire lives in quarantine …

Covid-19 has forced us to think about many privileges , and we thank God for the blessing of the freedom of movement, ability to see life, breathe the air, and appreciate colors …

We thank God for the blessings we take for granted every day … *
