One of my favourite movie monologues…
Whenever I get gloomy with the state of the world, I think about the arrivals gate at Heathrow Airport. General opinion’s starting to make out that we live in a world of hatred and greed, but I don’t see that. It seems to me that love is everywhere. Often it’s not particularly dignified or newsworthy, but it’s always there – fathers and sons, mothers and daughters, husbands and wives, boyfriends, girlfriends, old friends. When the planes hit the Twin Towers, as far as I know, none of the phone calls from the people on board were messages of hate or revenge – they were all messages of love. If you look for it, I’ve got a sneaky feeling you’ll find that love actually is all around.
Read that again. How powerful is that?
The next time you’re at an airport, look around you for a bit. Try and capture the emotions around you. Proud parents seeing off their daughter starting her education abroad.. A loving wife saying goodbye to her husband in the army.. Kids running upto their mother who returned home after months.. A backpacker going for her first solo trip…
The airport is full of such emotions of aspirations, adventure, new beginnings, passion and more! But most importantly it’s full of love. 💕
So the next time you’re at an airport, take it all in. 🙂
