“We want to live by each others’ happiness, not by each other’s misery.”
Watch the remixed video entitled “A Message for Mankind” which is described by Brain Pickings as "...a stirring mashup of Charlie Chaplin’s famous speech from The Great Dictator and scenes of humanity’s most tragic and most hopeful moments in recent history, spanning everything from space exploration to the Occupy protests, with an appropriately epic score by Hans Zimmer."

After viewing the video, write at least five sentences sharing your reaction to the film.  Include in your answer what you think the message or theme of the film might be?  Start Scribbling!
Happy Writing!
