Would you dare to question who you really are?
We all have our cultural background . We may be Turkish, Iranian, Brazilian, Spanish, Indonesian, Venezuelan but…
…are we really open to know more about other people?
It’s easy to think there are more things dividing us than uniting us. But we actually have much more in common with other nationalities than you’d think.

This is extremely impressive. I have watched it a few times and I will again and again because I don’t want to forget this video and the people’s facial expressions. I would like to learn the story of myself. I feel very grateful to live in this unique world.
I am really grateful to live in this world as well! And we will see a peaceful world in our lifetime!

Thanks for all efforts our teacher.
I believe we are all one big family. And we are the ones responsible to share more love! I’m glad we are in this together!
Wow ! What an amazing video! It really touched me and made me cry. It made me think that we can’t be self centered or focus on our little place in the world. One thing that I can say about my country, Brazil, is that we’re a very warm and accepting people, because we know that we all have mixed racial backgrounds. Thanks so much for sharing this incredible video with us.
Even though we live in a mixed racial country, we still need to be more embracing of other races and backgrounds. May we keep being the change we want to see in the world.
Wonderful video! Brilliant! I loved it! We are all brothers. The world needs more love. Let’s share it!
Let’s spread the love! And be more united!
This video makes me happy and sensitive. I cried in the finish. I know my veins have a big mix of the nationalities because my dad did a research about our ancestors. I’m proud to say that I have Brazilian Indians, Germany, Portugueses and Africans in my blood. I hope people spread love and hate less. We are a big family in this world. 😊🙏
By being this loving and kind person, you are contributing to a more loving and kind world! ❤
Amazing video, I enjoyed it a lot! All of us are part of this big world, we are pieces of a big machine, we are important! Pitifully, violence and intolerance exist. But change starts with each one of us! Let’s change our attitude, open our mind and smile to everyone!
What an amazing video! The idea is so simple and so very powerful at the same time! It’s very moving!
Thank you so much sir for giving us the opportunity to see such a heart touching video.I was quite surprised and happy to see the lady finding her cousin brother from among the lot.It made me realize the fact that God made us in image of him & its we humans who have made discrimination on grounds of color,religion & caste.I as a person would hereby share this video as much as i can to open hearts & minds of all my friends to accept our brothers & sisters round the world.
Let’s spread the world and start a revolution! A revolution of LOVE and unity. Let’s OPEN our world! ❤
Do you have a more kid friendly version or would you recommend a video for kids at school?
I don’t have a kid friendly version. That’d be a great idea!
I like this video very much. I’ve always believed that we are connected somehow, but I didn’t know that it was possible to test that. It was a big surprise for me. If I could, I would take this test. It might be very interesting to know which countries and cultures we belong to.
I wish I could take that DNA test as well. But right now I can tell you: I am sure I come from many different backgrounds and I embrace each one of them!
It reminds me an italian research published on “Science” in 2013, based on DNA analysis of a sample of sardinian males.(Our population is isolated and genetically informative). This study allowed the scientists to find Adam,150.000 years ago…
At a same point we’ve convinced ourselves to be different between us. In contrast,we’re all the same man!
I am curious now about this study! Sardinians are isolated genetically? And they found Adam? I want to know more!
We are all the same indeed! 😉
I was surprised too! I summed up,you can find more there http://science.sciencemag.org/content/341/6145/565
I watched the video a lot of time, I showed it to my daughter and my husband and then we spoken about the feelings that made us feel. There is no pure race and on this earth we are all brothers, cousins… Amazing video…very moving. We should open our hearts more. Thanks Thiago
Let’s open our hearts, then our minds and then our world!
This is great.
Ancient Echoes II
From my first ancestors ‘til now…
That many years of lives, loves and passions
have been passed to me.
As an evolving ingredient in this family line am I
Born from the genetics of many great combinations
Their elemental resonance rings stoutly in my bones
Stature and posture of mind has been determined
So longed for is the feeling of their voices
The rhythm of the tones
The tasting of spoken vibrancy
to be taken in and let trickle through my senses
That their songs of heart should visions inspire
Whispered of by m’Lady (who resides within)
and with a gentle coaxing… attuned I’ve become…
To that which are mere vestiges of Ancient futures
those thoughts, sights and sounds
that cascade off the Northern Lights
in brilliant hues of pinks, greens and blues
The masculine passion of Ancient Echoes
Oh the beauty of those many spoken heart thoughts
Words made alive by their cherished intent.
Too powerful, treasured and potent they are to be lost,
and sternly they ricochet off the unreceptive.
Forever adrift, wanting to be used anew…
Yearning to be infused into the hearts of the valiant
these Ancestral exhortations…
by a heart-felt quest did I seek them
Honored am I to give them life again
By running with their torch,
I seek to balance scales
and aspire to give of life, love and spirit…
Ancient Echoes, robustly and with reverence I celebrate thee
Kenneth William Edgar
