The Boy Who Lived Before
This incredible documentary tells the story of Cameron. Ever since he was able to speak, he’s been telling stories of his life on Barra. Barra is a remote island in the Outer Hebrides, some 220 miles from his current home in Glasgow, Scotland.
Cameron is able to detail all aspects of his life on the Island…his family there, his dog, his white house, etc. The remarkable part is that Cameron is only 5 years old. His memories are not at all related to his life in Glasgow or anyone he’s ever met physically. He seems to be recalling a former life. He insistently says, “I’m a Barra boy, I’m a Barra boy”. He seems to have a strong emotional attachment to his Barra “mother” which of course worries his family in the here and now.
Watch the full documentary, and let me know what you think. Is Cameron a boy with a wild imagination? Or is there something more happening here?
