Everybody Hurts - Memorial Day 2008

Whether on a personal or national level, everybody hurts. Pain and sorrow regard not age, race, nor gender. It breaks through all religious barriers. This video was compiled from personal and public images.

Music by R.E.M.

FOOTNOTE: Happy Memorial Day

Thank You EZ. As I told you, the personal images are from my Mom's funeral. The video moves on to pain and sorrow around the world...then ends with a message of Hope.

I still can't believe Rosie might have viewed my video. I'm walking on sunshine!

Patty, this is heart-wrenching and beautiful. A montage which clearly depicts the universal nature of suffering. And that stone with the message of Hope, that gorgeous rose remind us to work for a better day.

Well-done! I hope many people view your video.

I've tagged you over at my place for a frivolous meme.

Came here from San Merideth's wonderful blog.

Yes, you're right. So right.

It's the ``tears of the clown'' syndrome.

San, thank you for seeing what I was trying to show with the video. Your encouragement is always appreciated.

I'll let you know when I've completed my meme. This should be fun...and revealing.
