From the ridiculous below to the sublime, please watch this incredible video about Alice Herz-Sommer, a 107-year old Holocaust survivor/musician. I hope you are able to watch it all the way through and see the context for these very moving final comments:
I never hate. Hatred brings only hatred.
I was born with a very, very good optimism. And it helps you when you are optimistic, when you are not complaining. When you look at the good side of our life, everybody loves you.
Only when we are so old -- only -- we are aware of the beauty of life.
