What we choose to focus on can be incredibly powerful.

When two seemingly different people meet, it can be simple notice only what separates them. We are often so quick to put up walls and distinguish ourselves from others… when really, what unites us is far stronger than what divides us.

In this beautiful video from NowThis, Europeans and refugees were asked to stare into each others’ eyes for four minutes. The volunteers were strangers… but this simple act built strong bonds between them in a matter of minutes.

This pure act goes to show how, underneath it all, love always wins.

Warning: you might struggle to hold back the tears!
