Lost Generation

This really is quite brilliant and gives us all reason to hope. We can put faith in those who will come after us.

Thanks for sharing this, I was not expecting the surprise reversal at the end! Now I gotta give some stars....

Carla said...

Yep, the reversal surprised me too. Like I said before, perspective is everything.

Annie Wicking said...

That's truely wonderful! And just as I was about to scream at my computer screen, I started to hear what I wanted to hear.

Thank you for sharing it with us.

How did you find it?

Best wishes,
Annie

Brilliant is right! Powerful!

Jannie Funster said...

I was a little depressed there until it played in reverse!

Whew.

Isle Dance said...

SO well done.

Carla said...

Annie, I understand. I too wondered about the video when it first started. A colleague of mine had seen it and shared it. She doesn't usually forward stuff, so I knew it had to be good.

Envoy-ette, Glad you think so.

Carla said...

Jannie, Whew is right! It is clever though, isn't it?

Ilse Dance, It is, isn't it?

What a clever way to say what's in your heart.

Carla said...

We're Doomed, Yes, it is very clever. I think that's why I like it so much.

So, perhaps everything has a reversal, specially for people used to say things "in negative".
Great, Carla.

dawn said...

Wow, I love that. It is just wonderful. Thanks for sharing it.

Carla said...

Aaoiue, Every coin has two sides, so perhaps you're right.

Dawn, I am truly pleased that you enjoyed that. It really grabbed me when I saw it the first time.

The initial opener this morning regarding Rupert was a bit of jarring note to begin the day (I'll have to go back and read comments...there must be a "rest of the story"). And the bear was cute...but this one was a surprise...this is a good one to start the day with. I'll share this with my son (14), to check his reaction. I wonder if he'll pass it along to his peers? Thanks for sharing. Have a great day.

Carla said...

Fool, I so enjoyed this one. Sometimes we are simply focusing on the wrong side of the coin. I like that sometimes you can simply flip something over and have a totally different take to the same thing. I agree, the story about Herman is not the most pleasant thing to ruminate about first thing in the morning. Indeed, there is more to the story...life is fragile even for the toughest of us.

The Fool said...

Uh, that's right...Herman...Rupert is the bear. Now I've got 'em straight. And yeah - it's viral - that vid is making the rounds through the teen circles in town. How things circulate...thanks again for sharing.
