Loving People as People

Camphill Communities California is on YouTube! This is a well-done short film (and finalist in a competition sponsored by the Pulitzer Center and YouTube) about a community and a way of living that is close to my heart.

I spent two and a half years of my life livng and working in a sister Camphill Community, Camphill Village Kimberton Hills in Pennsylvania.  I chose this place because I was so impressed that the developmentally disabled folks were respected as… people! I wanted to be part of a place where people were loved as complete beings, regardless of how different they seemed.

Take a look at this video and feel the heart-warmth yourself.
