If you’re not on Snapchat, you don’t know what it is to be a fly on the wall, to have a bird’s eye view into the tiniest, intimate moments in the lives of friends and family. You can’t know how the world comes in so close that you get a taste of someone’s life on the other side of the world.

If you’re not on Snapchat, you don’t know that borders don’t exist. You can’t know that language doesn’t matter, nor race, nor creed…the colors of sunrise or sunset that fix your mouth

in that Ohhhh of awe, the snow white glow of a stone building in the desert, or the new litter of pups in the shed.

If you’re not on Snapchat, you don’t know the lives of total strangers and your dear ones. Only ten short seconds can show you: your brother out working on a pasture fence; sunrise captured by your sister as she finishes her night shift at the vet

clinic; your son’s latest art project, and the sweet girl in Missouri out and about with her friends.
Simple everyday moments from all over the world transporting you into someone else’s world.

If you’re not on Snapchat, you don’t know that barriers and borders don’t exist. You can’t know that language doesn’t matter.
We can all appreciate beauty, time with friends and family, and the most basic everyday moments.

Snapchat can make me want to:

Be at that ball game
OOOOO at those fireworks
Hold that tiny baby
Help to put up that building
Hike that trail
Travel to that mountain village
DSCN2996Sing by that Christmas tree
Walk that labyrinth
Strive for that goal

If you’re not on Snapchat, you can’t share in those special little moments, or share the ones in your own life that are alone and hidden, but could be inspiring so many others.
