Six minutes.

It’s not a long time. A brief phone conversation, a hurried meal, a walk across a parking lot.

If someone told me that I had only six minutes to complete a task, my first thought would probably be:

“That’s not enough time.”

I waste six minutes every day. Probably each hour.

It’s not a long time, but six minutes can change the world.

In six minutes, the world did change for everyone living in Kesennuma City in Japan. In six minutes, a city was destroyed. In six minutes lives were changed forever.

 

I wish I had the words to appropriately convey what I felt as I watched that video. I sat with my jaw hanging open, unable to grasp what I was seeing.

Six minutes, and a world changed forever.
