My article: https://www.ted.com/talks/gill_hicks_i_survived_a_terrorist_attack_here_s_what_i_learned/transcript
This article describes human nature in an extreme situation. I have believed that human the theory that human nature is fundamentally evil; humans are egoistic and cannot care of other people who have no relationships with others. The person in that ted video, Gill Hicks, she is one of the survivors of the London terrorist bombings on July 7, 2005, and she establishes about her experience. This talk sounds like a cliché, but I think that cliché she describes is what we truly need in life. It reminds me of one scene of my favorite novel, “My Sweet Orange Tree’’ by José Mauro de Vasconcelos after Zeze was beaten by his father for his and his father’s mistake, he gets help by Manuel Valladares who was a Portuguese person and was a mad person to Zeze. Since he helped Zeze, Manuel becomes a true father to him. Gill was rescued not because of her skin colour, not because of her sexual orientation, not because of her decision of the vote, and only because she was an alive human in the damaged. She realized and believes the potential for widespread positive change that can change other people, I also want to believe people can make a positive change for harmony.
