If You Looked a Refugee in the Eyes for 4 Minutes, Would You Change?
Did you know that research shows that just four minutes of staring into someone's eyes—no talking—will bring you closer than anything else? It's amazing how much a look exchanged for 240 seconds can communicate more than words. Amnesty Poland, part of Amnesty International, decided to try this experiment as an effort to put faces to the world's refugee issues instead of just attaching a number to the situation. Watch these participants' reactions and you can start to understand how important real human interactions with strangers and loved ones can be.
