Inspiring Ad of the Foundation for a Better Life

This TV ad of The Foundation for a Better Life (FBL) caught my attention one afternoon. It was a track and field competition for special athletes (Down Syndrome). FBL, by the way, is a "non-profit organization dedicated to sharing the values that make the difference in the community."

Exposition: The inspiring part was when this contestant stopped and willingly extended her hand to help her opponent who suddenly stumbled while running.
But what's the most inspiring part? When all of the contestants, eventually, came back and together they ran.
I only saw perfection.

I was moved by this ad that it left me smiling, and somehow teary-eyed. It was so inviting that I ended up browsing through their website. Indeed, the foundation presented more inspiring videos and stories.

Videos that are going to either make you cry or encourage you more to strive for the best.

Also, stories about people who have done extraordinary things to their fellowmen and ultimately changed them.

And there's more…the website has quotes and other stuff that will truly inspire you in your everyday lives. Plus, you can unveil your "hero" by submitting a "Your Hero" story (click here) so the readers may know.

JaneJane's annotation: I think the message of this TV ad is profoundly...simple. Unfortunately, there are people who really want to get ahead of the race, no matter what happens, even if it'll cause injury (physically and emotionally) to their loved ones.

Because they thought that if they're going to win, they'll be the wealthiest and the most powerful.

But what's wealth if you don’t have someone to share it with?

And the saddest part of being powerful? Nobody will bother to ask you if you're hurt.

That simple.
