This short film helped me clarify my thinking about what is important.
Thoughts I had already..why I drive an old car with low mileage or live in a small, but paid for house. Why I donate to a lot of charities, even in very small amounts. Why I am suspect of political promises by the wealthy who pay proportionately less taxes than I do. Lots of things cleared up today in my mind.
