Miniature Earth

My son Ryan, a freshman at Arizona State University, pointed me to this video. The global perspective it shares is certainly worth the few minutes it takes to watch.

We who focus professionally on Digital Identity sometimes forget that many of the world’s people have nothing digital to access or protect. For too many, the most important part of personal identity is all wrapped up in how to survive the day.

    Of the 100 people in the ‘miniature earth’, 0.02 would be Jewish. Interesting that the statistic is too small to be individually mentioned in the video, yet when the religions are listed it opens with a religious Jew in a black hat, probably standing at the Western Wall.

    The picture is painted with a really broad brush, which tends to miss important details such as the one you mention. My religion is an even smaller blip on the screen. 🙂

    Yet hopefully the video will inspire us to be more empathetic and supportive of all people, regardless of religious, cultural, racial or economic background.

    Thank you for sharing that. I had seen it some time ago and couldn’t remember where. It is serendipity that I ran across it again.
