As with most of the TED talks, this story is really worth the watch. Composer Eric Whitacre speaks of this journey to create and lead a virtual choir of singers from around the world over YouTube. The story in itself is amazing. I really spoke to me.
There is this core desire within humanity to be a part of something larger than ourselves. That theme really resonated as I watched this. This innate yearning to be caught up in something grand drives us, but we can never truly achieve greatness alone. We find meaning in our own lives once we become a part of another’s life. To accomplish great things in this world we need each other. Ultimately, the majestic never happens alone. There’s something absolutely beautiful about that.
