The transcript of Tina’s voice over in the Children Beyond movie. This movie was absolutely breathtaking, it will be out on dvd at some point, and hopefully also on television. For now, you can read Tina’s words.

The world has a population of 6 billion people and more. People from all over, with a multitude of cultures and believes. We all work, build and create, eat, grow and strive for something better. We dream, consume and love. Are we so different?

Why is it that our religions are dividing and not uniting? This man-made world has inflamed so many wars, used as an excuse, to kill and cause injustice, so far removed from the cause of the problem. Surely this not an act of love and certainly it’s not what God intended for us.

To try and understand the creator’s love for the world is beyond our comprehension. It’s like trying to understand the universe and making logic of the stars. It’s beyond trying to rationalize or making any sense of it but also not the point, I believe. All we need to know is the LOVE for us, every single one of us, it does not matter if you are Muslim, Jewish, Buddhist, Sikh, Christian or Hindu. Big or small, old or young, weird or beautiful; love has no boundaries.

Our time on this planet is so short, and how would it be, if we were able to leave a mark, for future generations to consider and be proud. A legacy you might say. Planting and tending the seeds for our young, paying it forward. That’s the wonder of music. The sound warms our hearts and soothes the soul. Music is eternal.

Through the voices of children the process is so much simpler. Forgiving, no pretense, no complicated preconceived ideas about one another based on differing appearances or practices or different beliefs, for that matter.

Be aware of what prejudice does or rather what society forces upon us. We are really not different at all. Roam the world, and see how we all live and how needs are the same wherever you go. Our inner needs are made up of the same human desires, the most important is love and being loved. Who am I to put a label on another person just because I don’t behave in the exact same way? The universe is beyond our comprehension and with our limited wisdom we cannot judge another, for how do we know the other’s heart; for love simplifies the process, binds us all together, love takes care and helps us comprehend.

The Children Beyond is about doing something, with voices reaching out, uniting and forgiving, and who knows, maybe resolving man’s conflict. It’s worth it!
