“Lessons From a Vacant Lot” presented by Shawn Boonstra for It Is Written Oceania ties in a few interesting stories, including a school built on a toxic waste dump, Abraham and Lot, the plain of Jordan, Sodom and Gomorrah, and one by Leo Tolstoy. It may be an oldie, but it’s worth a watch if you haven’t seen it.
The synopsis reads:
Most people are willing to make sacrifices so that children can have a better shot at life. We do without some of the luxuries of life to save for uni tuition, we work that extra shift to pay for cricket, swimming or music lessons. And even if our own healthcare doesn’t cover a whole lot we still drag our kids to the medical clinic once in a while because we want them to have every chance at living a healthy, productive life. So then you’ve got to wonder why in the world would somebody build a school right on top of a toxic waste dump?
