What Does Family Mean To You? This Video May Change How You Think about It

Guruju Sri Vast argues that it's our concept of family that leads to so much conflict and suffering in the world. "By only seeing those inside your house as your family, naturally, you must take from those outside of your house to take care of those inside of your house." This view puts all families in competition with one another. Sri Vast points towards a new concept of family.

What does family mean to you? For Sri Vast, it is anywhere where he feels love and accepted for who he is. Using this definition of family - love and acceptance - could we not all be one big human family? 

"No one needs to be alone."

Films For Action is a digital library for people who want to change the world.

 

Our mission is to provide citizens with the knowledge and perspectives essential to creating a more beautiful, just, sustainable, and democratic society.

Films For Action was founded in 2006 by a few friends in Lawrence, Kansas, after realizing how essential a healthy media is to a healthy democracy.

Today, with the help of our members (who can add content directly to our site), we've curated over 5,000 of the best documentaries, short films, and videos that can be watched for free online plus several dozen pay-per-view documentaries, sorted into 34 subjects related to changing the world.

And, since there's still so much to learn about that isn't featured in a film, we've also curated over 4,000 articles.
