It is such a joy to see this young man, Burnell Taylor, talk about his experience of enduring and subsequently surviving hurricane Katrina, and moving on with life, and to hear him sing “I’m Here,” the song that Celie in The Color Purple sang when she achieved one of the best realizations of all: that no matter who or what considers itself above us, it is Existence itself that makes us equal. We are all here.
If this realization were the floor of our understanding of Life, it would change everything instantaneously.
Enjoy the welcome authenticity of Taylor and his adoring family in this video, and give thanks.
