Yekra Player

Yekra is a revolutionary new distribution network for feature films.

Unacceptable Levels

Unacceptable Levels examines the results of the chemical revolution of the 1940s through the eyes of affable filmmaker Ed Brown, a father seeking to understand the world in which he and his wife are raising their children. To create this debut documentary, one man and his camera traveled extensively to find and interview top minds in the fields of science, advocacy, and law. Weaving their testimonies into a compelling narrative, Brown presents us with the story of how the chemical revolution brought us to where we are, and of where, if we’re not vigilant, it may take us.

A vessel of kindness

Kindness. It goes a long way.

Today, as I sit at a local coffee shop, I smile as I observe the kindness people extend to strangers. Rushing to open a door for someone on crutches; complimenting someone on a brightly colored outfit; helping a mom struggling to carry a baby and a high chair. Random acts of kindness. It's not just a catch phrase. For some, it's a way of life.

Someone did something extraordinarily kind for me this past weekend. It was anonymous, so I cannot thank him/her, but it touched me deeply. And the thing is, we all have the power to change someone's day/week/month/year/LIFE. Sometimes it is through simple things, and other times it's a bigger deal. Sometimes it is with our words, and other times with our finances. 

However you approach the act of showing kindness, I encourage you to do more. We live in a world where people need both big and small gifts to help them along the journey. Be a vessel of change, one act of kindness at a time.
