Beauty Will Save the World

The title alone should be enough to grab your attention, but it is actually much deeper than the usual superficial levels which usually fill our imagination.  What we encounter is the depth of suffering, which only then allows us to understand the depth of beauty.

The interview tells the story, as told by CBC Producer Frank Faulk, of Aleksandr Solzhenitysyn who was imprisoned in a Soviet gulag and later won the Nobel Prize in 1970.  Upon receiving the award, he said, “Beauty will save the World.”
