As I watch tears stream down my face and Sophie looks curiously back and forth between me and the screen. Why is Mama crying? I can almost hear her asking.
What is it about Matt’s videos that always makes me cry? I think because dance is a universal language of joy. It’s part of our universal humanity. It’s pure, unadulterated. When what I see in the news is tragedy and heartbreak and ugliness, Matt makes me remember that life is beautiful, that we are all children of God.
