My son recently shared with me an AMAZING video on youtube about the paths Hate can take in our lives. The video has great animated detail of a WWII dogfight between a British Spitfire and a German BF109. In life, especially in times of war, what begins as just a job to stop "the enemy" becomes a path to destruction of the heart. The symbolism in this short film is surprisingly deep. I especially found the scene when the German airman held so tightly to the trigger that the Rosary Beads, symbolic of his faith, were torn from his hands by his hatred. When faith in the God of Love is absent, all that remains is hate. Similarly, the British airman's love, portrayed by the photograph of his sweetheart, blows away. The words Love are seen flying out of sight once outside the plane. When Love and Faith are removed from our lives, Hate grows. And the end result of Hate is always total destruction. Destruction of the body and the soul. The only thing that will remain are the evil ghosts of actions.
What do you think of the film? Did you see other symbolism about the messages of love, faith, and hatred?
