As Canadians begin to ramp up flying once again, WestJet released a lovely brand video that actually made me cry. It’s worth a watch.
New WestJet Brand Video Brings Tears To My Eyes
Trying to describe it will not do it justice, so just watch it:
WestJet does great at making me cry…the Christmas Miracle videos make me tear up as well.
This video is so touching and so precious…many can relate. It’s also a reminder of the human cost of distancing and isolation. As we move toward a post-pandemic world and look back in retrospect, I am most curious if such draconian shelter-in-place rules were necessary in the first place.
I’m not a public health expert, so I will not give my two cents, except to note the tremendous human burden on family separation, as this video so delicately showcases. I am thankful this gentleman got to see Victoria…many loved ones died alone, a cruel and inhumane death worse than the virus itself.
This video is a poignant reminder that now is the time to embrace family and friends and cherish them like never before. Don’t wait…we never know when it is our turn to go…and our turn is coming. From dust we came, and to dust we shall we return.
And get vaccinated, for goodness sakes. Look at the numbers in the USA and Western Europe. A friend in Florida recently contracted COVID-19 for the THIRD time. He declined to be vaccinated because he said he had antibodies. Now he’s had the worst case yet, with fatigue, fever, and a loss of taste and smell.
Whatever fears you might have over the vaccination, the virus itself is worse. Don’t kid yourself otherwise.
And WestJet, nicely done on a beautiful video.
(H/T: One Mile at a Time, who said the video almost made him cry…well, it did make me cry!)
