If you ever lose heart and the earth seems as distant as stars fading into the noise of your busy mind, know this. That a tiny island exists in the blue hands of the ocean. That a tree grows upright into the salted clouds. That two eagles love each other enough to spend their lives greeting the morning sun together. That two eaglets stand in their nest, gazing at the heavens. Looking down to the forever ground. They eat and sleep and flap their wings. And one day in July, one by one, they will jump into the air. They will know the difference between existing and what is beyond. They will hold onto nothing. The hurricane will come, courage catching their pinions on fire, as they mount the wind, climbing ladders into realms of the invisible.

A Walk to Beautiful


2007 NR 52 minutes

This film is beautifully done, a piece of inspiring artwork. It will draw you into the lives of a few young Ethiopian women, their struggles, their beauty, and you will begin to love them and cry for them. If you are hungry to invest in a project to help a group of people, be involved in health care/surgery organization, I recommend this movie as a start. And I mean not to just give a quick donation to a hospital, but to find a way to match your gifts/talents with theirs, and with the young women who have their own gifts. After more research I am sure a poem will come from this inspiration. Also, if you want to know about investing with your heart or just learning about money, try the book "The Soul of Money".

"In Ethiopia, a country with few hospitals and even fewer roads that lead to them, three women are on a journey to rebuild their lives after suffering devastating losses in childbirth. When the women survive but their babies do not, they are summarily shunned by their families. Now, they must make their way to a hospital in Addis Ababa, where they hope to receive treatment for fistula, a condition caused by obstructed labor during childbirth." (Netflix)
