We recall events like buying a first home or your first car with great fondness and think to ourselves that they are great examples of joy-filled moments. But real joy...unbridled and unreserved joy...looks more like this.
Think about your last breath. Not your last one ever, but the one you just took. It just kind of happened without you thinking about it, right? But what if that breath was missed? It would command your immediate attention. It would go from one of the last things you consciously think about to the very first thing on your mind. The same goes for our hearing. By it we experience the world, but without it, we miss a lot. This video captures a bit of the true value of our hearing when people hear for the first time ever.
