‘The Great Realization’ …. “📚 ‘Hindsight 2020: A Bedtime Story’ 📚 …. “!!

~~May 9, 2020~~


I’d seen this video come through my timeline on several social media platforms. It wasn’t until this morning that I really took time out to watch it and internalize the message.

I also looked into the young man telling the story.

COVID-19 … CoronaVirus

Kiwi poet Tomos Robertson (aka Tom Foolery) and the fairytale video that’s gone viral.

A New Zealand-born poet’s bedtime fairytale video, The Great Realisation, has already racked up more than three million views on YouTube – and is broadcast in full below.

Tomos Roberts – aka Tom Foolery – thinks the world will be a better place after the coronavirus pandemic than before, explaining it in feelgood form in the four-minute clip.

Among the millions of fans worldwide, the poem has struck a chord with A-list celebrities in Hollywood.

In the optimistic, forward-looking poem, Roberts speaks to a child about how the world was before the virus took over.

People were too dependent on technology, there was rampant overconsumption, and global warming was a major problem.

But as the pandemic struck and people were forced into lockdown, they started to speak to each other a lot more, especially loved ones. The planet started to recuperate as factories and industries paused.

Born in Auckland to Welsh parents travelling the country, Roberts now lives in the UK.

“She’s not perfect, she’s not a prophet, but she’s doing a very good job.”

Due to the lockdown in England, he said he was able to get to know his younger siblings Cai and Sara better than any other time in the last seven years. The child in the video is his younger brother.
