If I’m part of the mechanism that lights a spark for just one person to effect change, it’s worth it.
My good friend of almost 10 years, Michael Marantz, just made this video.

My attempt here is to let you see a truly beautiful, hopefully inspiring, piece of art that deals with what is real. There is no agenda here.

Enjoy the film, and take charge.
